Samsung introduced two new DirecTV satellite television receivers (models SIR-S70 and SIR-S75) that combine video games and an advanced program guide (APG).

The new guide comes equipped with search functions that lets users scan program listings via the names of actors, movies and other one-step search fields. A picture-in-guide window allows viewers to continue watching a program while surfing through the listings, or they can choose Samsung's Quick Guide, which displays listings one 30-minute time-slot at a time in an opaque overlay located on top of the program.

Other unique features include the simple and direct user interface, which now offers bilingual options - a benefit for DirecTV Para Todos service customers. Four games and an on-screen caller-ID come built into each model along with a universal remote control that ties everything together.

SIR-S70

Perfect for new satellite subscribers or current users with a second television, the SIR-S70 provides a number of features at an entry-level price point. This compact receiver includes two audio/video outputs, a three-day APG, built-in games and on-screen caller-ID.

SIR-S75

The step-up SIR-S75 appeals to home theater aficionados with its flexible connectivity and superior features. The SIR-S75 adds component video and Dolby Digital outputs for DVD-quality audio and video and a seven-day APG. It's perfect as a home media center or home theater hub.

Samsung's SIR-S70 will be available this month at a price of $99, while Samsung's SIR-S75 will be available in June at a price of $199. For more information on Samsung, visit www.samsungusa.com.

Wow...component out from a SD receiver and a 7 day guide for $199 - that sounds like a heck of a receiver. I wonder how they are keeping 7 days worth of guide data stored?
