You can get a dvr like reliance dvr or taka sky + so they both have recording facility and its easy to use. NO idea abt recording within lcd itself by attaching external hdd

Dish TV has recently added feature where one can record content to USB connected device directly. Check out Unlimited Recording feature on their website.

you have 3 option
1) buy DVR and connect it tv and record cable tv/dth program running on tv, if hdd gets full then buy new & attach.
2) buy tata sky/airtel/reliance DVR which will allow u to record on HDD in that stb, which u cant pull out, and need to be watched from same stb
3) buy dish tv hd STB and buy external usb hdd and connect and record, which u cant pull out, and need to be watched from same stb

the main difference between option 2 and 3 is that

with option 2, u can record two program simultaneously, or watch one and record other, and hdd capacity limited to 500/320gb, some expert have replace original hdd with 2tb.


with option 3, u have to compulsory watch the program, which is being record, and only 1 program can be recorded. but u can use 2TB hdd, if it gets full then buy new 2TB & attach.




if u want tata sky+ then contact me or click here

A software upgrade from tatasky was expected where you can record to external hd like dish. However no news in the last few days.

Software upgrade is also waiting for airtel hd and tata sky hd.

it will work same as dish tv feature with same advantage and disadvantage.

better go for either option 1 or 2.

all dth having hd dvr may also allow to connect external hdd, to overcome limited capacity of installed hdd.

does anyone using TS+ HD have this 'pixelation' problem:
during any dark / night scenes you can see large circular artifacts probably due to compression

these are not seen from any other source like dvd or cable tv so its not a problem with the LG 32" plasma screen

it even happens on the HD channels like star world and SD like fox crime

I am using Iomega screenplay pro hd for recording the tv programs and keeping as network media drive. I can copy, edit the live(delete the ads) and burn DVD also. It is good and cheep. In tata sky and other DVr if un subscribe there is no way view the old recordings and moreover those recordings property based and can not read in other systems. I recommend this type of device.

Is this a hardware and can it be connected to tv like an dvr? Can it record when tv is not on but only the stb is on?

It comes with 1gb HDD. The price you check. It has built in networking unit. (RJ45) you can connect hook up this wifi network with ordinary wifi usb dongle. it can be connected to PC with USB cable and accecess as external Hard drive. So you copy and move the movies from P.C. and to PC. Editing is with P.C. only with ordinary video cutter and join or with any other tools like that. It support all most all formats of video and audio formats. in puts are video (Red white and yellow) connector. Yes you can connect with any Tata sky, reliance, etc or with local cable wall Hathway unit etc. Out puts are same as (Red, white and yellow) connector or with HDMI to T.V. Price long ago, i purchased for 10k. It seems that, now it is available for 6 or 7K.

It comes with 1gb HDD.


I figured from the review link that you wanted to say 1TB instead of 1GB.

Thanks a lot for sharing this info. Its really good thing to have with the features it has.
