[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hey guys! I'm Brian Tong, here at CES 2008 and what I've got next to me is the EchoStar TR-50 DVR. Now, it's EchoStar's digital over-the-air receiver with DVR functionality and you're gonna get all the DVR functions you expect like skipping through a 30-second commercials, fast-forwarding and rewinding. Now, most DVRs have about 12 hours of program in information, but the EchoStar, they've got TV Guide to back them up, so, they're gonna have 7 full days. You can see way down the road what programs you want to record. That's another killer feature. Now, another thing this does have is expandability. So, you have a hard drive inside of here, that's yet to be determined, but you also have a USB port on the back side that's gonna allow you to connect any other hard drives. So, you have the ability to customize how much space you can pack all your videos on. Another feature this guy has is an Ethernet port on the back and what that's gonna allow EchoStar to do is VMU program in through that Ethernet port and also offer you customizable software updates down the road. So, obviously this is a product that will continue to evolve. So, once again, we've got the EchoStar TR-50 DVR, checking it out. It's coming out in the summer and we'll wait until then to see it. ^M00:01:09 [ Music ]
