Sony CSV-E77

Sony Corp has unveiled an Internet connected video recorder that will offer TiVO like functionality by seeking out and recording programmes that it thinks its owners will enjoy. The CSV E77 is the first in the Cocoon line of products that Sony intend to introduce as an alternative to the PC-as-entertainment-hub concept being touted by MS and Intel.

The DVR incorporates a 160 GB hard disk (enough for 100 hours of Survivor!) and uses broadband connectivity to hook up with program guide information. Priced at around $1100.00 in Japan, so it’s not likely to become a common household appliance anytime soon. Japanese page here.
