Sunrise USB Video Recorder Software allows any USB stick inserted into any USB-enabled media - ie, most HD TV’s and PVR’s - and record TV programmes as if the stick were a video recorder or PVR.
Recordings can even be selected directly from the EPR - Electronic Program Guide - of the TV or box being used.
According to Phil Evans at OCean Blue, “Using this software enables manufacturers to keep down the cost of the STB or TV whilst still offering the user the ability to record and store TV programmes; and all with the simplicity of the PVR and the flexibility of the VCR. What’s more, there’s no limit to the choice of storage size using a USB HDD, but the solution works just as well with USB memory stick, or even SD Memory card, either through a direct interface or USB adaptor.
“Additional features for this product include an intuitive UI (User Interface) and one step recording from the EPG, as well as a content manager to display full listings of recorded content irrespective of the media chosen.”
