JVC/Victor has launched two new HD video recorders that allow the recording of two programs simultaneously.

The main difference between the two models is their storage capacity: 250GB for the DR-HX250 and 500 GB for the DR-HX500.

Shared specs include HDD (500GB or 250GB), a VHS player, DVD player/burner, a digital/analogue TV tuner, HDMI and composite outputs.

And they both support Dolby Digital and DTS format.

So you can watch your old favourite video tapes whilst your kiddies watch their DVDs.
