Panasonic DVR/DVD

This is the first entrant into what will surely be a bigger retail category: the combination DVR/DVD player. DVR is digital video recorder – it’s essentially a bare-bones TiVo (it can do the live TV pause, record programs, etc. but doesn’t include the recommendation feature, program guides, etc.) coupled with a DVD player and a DVD burner. Yes – that means you can record something from the TV, then burn it to a DVD. Check out the early review at C|Net.
