Archos AV700 Twin Tuner DVR
The Archos AV700 handheld video device is the first to sport two DTT tuners. With 40 GB of hard drive space, the device is capable of recording 35 hours of digital TV programs. The DVR software records shows to the hard drive in MPEG-2 TS format. There is also onboard scheduling software, allowing you to look through an episode guide so that you won’t miss a show. Archos designed this device for the road, and claims that TV can be viewed in the car while traveling up to 80 mph - something that isn’t possible with standard single-antenna DTT receivers. The AV700 also comes with the Mophun mobile phone games engine, but the focus here is truly on video. The device is also capable of playing MP3, WMA, and WAV files. All of this mobile media goodness comes with a pretty steep price tag though, as the AV700 is expected to retail at about $841.00. Detailed specifications after the jump.
