Digital Vision intros ultra-simple GiGo Digital TV Recorder
Digital Vision has announced the GiGo Digital TV Recorder, a simplistic DVR built to record Freeview programming to USB thumb drives in MPEG2 format. Envisioned to be placed in secondary rooms such as kitchens rather than the living room, the GiGo does without a built-in hard drive though Digital Vision says it does connect to large capacity external hard drives without issue. It has 3 USB slot, only one tuner and an electronic program guide. It isn't compatible with Freeview+, but users can watch one program while recording another. The GiGo will launch later this year for the rough equivalent of $115 and Digital Vision says it is also working on developing higher-end DVRs with internal drives and MPEG4 compatibility.
