NEWS: PVR offers 500GB of media storage

Here's another manufacturer that's new to us, this time delivering a media storage device that aims to make recording and storing all your TV, music and movies that much easier.

The Media Bank from disgo has a 500GB hard disk and calls itself a PVR and digital storgare device, though there's no internal tuner.

Making much of its simple set-up, the Media Bank is a strictly plug and play affair, and once up and running communicates with your TV or set-top box directly. With both manual and scheduled recording, you could be filling that whopping hard disk in no time.

There are various features for photo viewing – slide shows, zoom and rotate your pics – as well as a music player for organising and playing your library of digital tunes.

The Media Bank supports SD/MMC/CF cards, has a USB 2.0 connection and is restricted to a recording resolution of 640 x 480.

Available from PC World and the disgo website, the Media Bank is scheduled for release on the 19th May and will retail at £170.
