High Definition Television programming is emerging as the next standard, and since VCRs don’t support recording HDTV, they will soon need to be replaced. Blu-ray recorders will allow you to record HDTV to Blu-ray Discs, and if combined with a hard drive will allow you to record and archive a lot of HDTV recordings. Across the board, the Blu-ray will replace VCRs with a variety of enhanced recording features. Reprinted with permission of www.Blueraylive.

Blu-ray recorders combined with hard drives can record High definition contents from television. Although the latest DVR can record HDTV contents, the sheer size of the files can overwhelm the built in hard drives. The Blu-ray recorder can alleviate this problem by archiving the files on the disc itself. With the storage capacity of 25-200 GB, Blu-ray is ideal storage medium for high definition contents.

Yes, as VCRs don’t support recording of HDTV programming consumers will soon need to replace them. Blu-ray recorders combined with hard drives offer a very flexible alternative for those that want to record HDTV. While HD-DVRs already allow consumers to record HDTV, the amount of HDTV programming that can be recorded and archived is limited by the size of the hard drive. Blu-ray recorders will offer a solution to this problem as they allow consumers to record the video to Blu-ray discs and then free up the hard drive. This should make them popular among people that want to archive a lot of their HDTV recordings.
