5 New LG HDTV with integrated Digital HDD Recorder

LG announces in Korea 5 new HDTVs with integrated digital video recorder.

The new LG TVs include 37”, 42”, 47” LCD TVs and 50”, 60” Plasma TVs. All five feature an integrated digital video recorder. The new recording HDTVs feature a dual tuner to record two shows at the same time.
With 160GB LG is still keeping the capacity pretty small, compared to the new Panasonic HD digital video recorder that come with 600GB HDD.

That is the problem with integrated solutions. They do not provide the cutting edge that you get when you buy independent components. Additionally you need to throw away the TV if you want a new DVR.
