    JVC Announces 'HDVideo' Recorder Capable of HDTV Recording and Playback
    JVC, the inventor of the VHS video format and one of the world's leading
    innovators in audio-visual consumer electronics, is introducing a new
    D-VHS format digital recorder capable of recording HDTV broadcasts at
    full quality. Its D-VHS HS (High Speed) mode operates on an incredible
    28.2 Mbps data transfer rate, clearly surpassing even the 19.3 Mbps ATSC
    standard for HDTV broadcasts. And with its enormous 50 GigaByte capacity
    per cassette which provides 4 hours of full HD recording on a single
    cassette*, it will be possible to record an entire feature-length hi-def
    movie without having to change tapes midway. In addition, this model
    also features the D-VHS STD mode (14.1 Mbps transfer rate) for
    standard-definition digital recording in MPEG2 format, and the LS3 mode
    (4.7 Mbps transfer rate) which enables an incredible 24 hours of MPEG2
    digital recording per cassette*. Although D-VHS is a totally digital
    recording technology separate from analog VHS, JVC nevertheless made
    sure that people who buy the HM-DH30000U can continue enjoying their
    accumulated analog collections too. With the HM-DH30000U's multi-format
    recording/playback capability, users will be able record and view in
    analog VHS, Super VHS, and Super VHS ET, in addition to digital D-VHS."

    Could it be an alternative to DVD Recorders?

    Sounds nice...
    But wouldn't you still have to fast-forward and rewind?? And what is the cost per-tape, and the cost of the recorder??... A digital-tape media doesn't sound cheap..
    Anyone??

    I don't know the answers to most of your questions, but it probably will be a little pricy ay first. just like all new technologies are.

    This D-VHS VCR has a serious shortcoming. It can be prevented from recording by any source. IOW, it has full copy protection. Chances are you won't be able to record anything but advertiser supported TV. I'm not interested in hobbled equipment.
