If you’re one of the few still clinging to the idea of a VCR, please, listen up. Life just got a whole lot easier with Humax’s new DRT800 DVD Recorder with TiVo — a simple, three-in-one combo job that features a DVD player/recorder with TiVo service. Now, not only can you record up to 80 hours of TV without worrying about a videotape, you can also archive said recorded programs and movies onto DVDs. Added plus? With an existing home network and a few accessories, you can also play MP3s and display digital pics from your computer directly onto your TV screen. $499. www.humaxusa.com
