It is unclear whether or not it's actually a PVR unit. It mentions something about an 80GB hard drive but I don't think it has anything to do with recording HD programming.

Sounds like a lot of miss-information to me.

Before I read that thread, I never new such a unit was in the works from JVC, as you can tell by my 2 posts in that thread at AVS.

I dont think so the 921 AFAIK, is supposed to have a much bigger HD, one tuner and be made by Echostar not JVC.

Steve - I've seen it reported several times that the 921 will have dual tuners that will be able to tune 2 HD channels at the same time, 1 HD and 1 SD channel or 2 SD channels. Od course, don't look for anything new receiver wise until the merger is taken care of (my bet is that includes the 721).

hmmm...then maybe the 921 and TU-9000 are one in the same after all. At anyrate I doubt we'll see the 9000 by JVC with in the next year let alone june.

Hmm the front of it says DVHS... This mean it will need video tapes?

Look at the fan on that thing, You could power a ship with a fan that size.

At least it has component outputs on the back and not the dreaded DVI outputs.

You're right - that is one heck of a fan - Perhaps that's just a temporary/pre-release version.

I'm pretty annoyed with dish making a conscience effort to disallow users from upgrading the hard drive. This is even more critical with a HD recorder. Perhaps things will be different with the JVC.

I think this is combination of vcr and HDTV receiver.
Although this vcr is cabable of recording HDTV to DVHS and not only that, I think it will be top of the line vcr. I think that this will not be real pvr that has harddrive, but still this will be very intresting unit and its almost ready.

Scott,
even though it needs tape and it has huge fan, it's still the only receiver that records HDTV.

We're doing apples and oranges. The signs refer to 2 distinct products. The first is a HDTV PVR STB (lots a letters), the second is a HDDVHS VCR with analog on board tuner.

I read about this in my copy of the May S&V mag, where they did a review of the JVC HMDH30000U. It stated that JVC was coming out with the TU9000, which is ONLY a HDTV/DISH set-top - it does NOT, repeat does NOT have a PVR in it. The picture at the TS'02 does NOT say one thing about it being a PVR!

This kind of reminds me of that JVC combo DISH5000/D-VHS unit that came out couple of years ago, except now it's TWO separate pieces & does HDTV.
