XM reveals XpressRC with color splitscreen, 1h buffer

XM XpressRC Tuner

XM Satellite Radio today stepped up its Xpress receivers with the XpressRC. Improving on the formula of the earlier XpressR, the RC shares the same split screen that allows browsing channels without losing track of what's currently playing. A new color screen, however, both offers much sharper output as well as richer visuals for station IDs and backgrounds. The color version also adds a full, one-hour memory buffer to catch shows missed during work or to replay a segment on the road.

The Audiovox-made tuner includes extra memory and remembers the user's ten favorite stations to cue them up on demand through direct buttons on the front face; the system can also remember the user's ten favorite songs to cue them when they appear on a given station. XM plans to ship the RC during the fall and will sell the receiver for $170.
