LG TV and PVR Hybrids 2007

LG this morning overhauled its XCanvas lines of LCDs and plasma TVs. Intended as compact PVRs, all five sets ship with both dual HDTV tuners and a 160GB internal hard drive. Viewers can record one HD show while watching another or see both at the same time using picture-in-picture, LG says. A USB 2.0 port adds external hard disks for extra recording time.

Each one of the new sets also implements LG's newest XD Engine for processing video and XCC for cleaning image artifacts and noise. The LCD-based LY3DR versions are available first in Korea at sizes between 37 and 47 inches and are capable of 720p/1080i signals for prices starting from $2,592; the 50-inch, 720p-ready PB3DR and 60-inch, 1080p PY3DR sell for $4,286 and $9,496 respectively. North American equivalents are very likely but have yet to be announced.
