Humax plans to sell 26″, 32″, and 40″ LCD televisions with built-in DVRs to American consumers. While similar models have been seen overseas, this is the first time the products will be available in the US. Unlike the reference model displayed at CES, Humax appears to be going it alone without TiVo software. No timeline has been provided.
Seagate says: Seagate Technology, the world’s leading hard drive company, today announced that Humax Co. Ltd. has chosen Seagate’s LD25 Series consumer electronics (CE) hard drive for its LCD TV with a built-in digital video recorder (DVR). Seagate’s new LD25 Series is the first consumer electronics hard drive in a compact, 2.5-inch form factor designed for non-mobile applications — an entirely new concept for inside-the-box CE storage that enables smaller, simpler, cooler-running and more cost-effective game consoles, home entertainment devices and small footprint media PCs.
