DIGITAL VIDEO RECORDER (DVR)
The DCT6400 contains a hard drive for the digital video recorder (DVR)
to record standard- and high-definition TV (HDTV) programs.
A standard VCR records and plays analog video. DVR records and plays
digital video. Unlike an analog tape, the hard drive allows simultaneous
recording and playback.
A DVR offers the ability to control your viewing experience by pausing
(time shifting) live TV and providing trick playback modes (pause, fast
forward, slow forward, fast rewind, slow rewind). You may experience a
slight delay between time shifted and live TV.
With the DCT6400, you can:
Record hours of TV programming. The total hours of recorded content
depends on your hard drive capacity and content type (digital, analog, or
HD) that you record.
Maintain a Personal Program Library
Maintain a personal library of recorded programming, accessed using the
interactive program guide (IPG).
Control Live TV
