With its built-in hard disk drive and multi-format DVD capabilities, the LG RH299H 400GB Multi-System HDD/DVD Recorder offers tremendous versatility that will simplify your video recording tasks. Not only can you record your favorite TV shows to HDD or DVD, but you can also record from external components such as a camcorder or VCR. In addition, the RH299H features a variety of editing and dubbing functions that will add a professional look to your videos.

Designed for serious recording requirements, the RH299H is capable of capturing the lengthiest videos. In Maximum Long Play (lowest video quality) mode, the unit can record for up to 11 hours on a single DVD, and up to an astonishing 1171 hours on the HDD. An advanced Timeshift function enables you to record a live broadcast for later viewing, and Simultaneous Record and Play lets you watch one source (HDD or DVD) while recording to the other.

The LG recorder is compatible with PAL/SECAM and NTSC systems, and features 1080p HD upconversion through HDMI, progressive scan, USB port, and DV input. It can record to DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R(DL), and DVD-RAM discs, and play discs in the DVD, VCD, SVCD, CD, and CD-R/CD-RW formats.

In addition to playing DVDs in spectacular high definition, the RH299 lets you control the action through its full-function remote control. The unit is capable of frame-by-frame and slow-motion playback, as well as a zoom function that lets you take a closer look at the images on screen. On the audio side, the recorder easily handles playback of commercial CDs as well as those recorded in the MP3 and WMA formats. The LG also serves as a great photo viewer, playing JPEG images either singly or in slideshows. The built-in USB port also can be used to play MP3, WMA, and JPEG files.

The recorder comes with a complete set of inputs and outputs for all of your entertainment devices, Simplink (HDMI-CEC) capability for unified control of the RH299H with a compatible TV remote, and a graphical interface that makes it a snap to operate the recorder's many functions.

For videophiles who do a lot of recording, want the versatility of a dual HDD/DVD machine, and need the capability of a multi-system unit, the LG RH299H 400GB Multi-System HDD/DVD Recorder has few equals.

Note! This unit may require a multi-system TV or system converter to view PAL DVDs in the US. This item is imported and it is not supported by a MFR warranty. To support this product B&H Photo provides a 90-day warranty.

HDMI Output with 1080p HD Upconversion
The RH299H can upscale video signals to a maximum of 1080p HDMI output, allowing you to enjoy standard definition video sources in HD resolution. This technology enables the recorder to carry high-definition audio and video information through a single cable, achieving the highest quality picture and clearest sound available.

Progressive Scan
As a progressive scan DVD recorder, the RH299H is capable of scanning an entire video frame at once, drastically reducing scan lines commonly associated with interlaced video. The result is a spectacularly clear and detailed image with no motion artifacts (stair-stepping).

400 GB Hard Disk Drive
Using the hard disk drive and recording in the Maximum Long Play (lowest video quality) mode, you can record for up to 1171 hours.

Super Multi DVD Recording
Using a recordable DVD and recording in the Maximum Long Play (lowest video quality) mode, you can record for up to 11 hours.

Advanced Timeshift
You don't have to miss a scene if you are interrupted while watching a live broadcast. If the telephone rings, just press "Timeshift" and "Pause" before answering the phone. The timeshift function will be activated and the broadcast is then recorded for later viewing. After the phone call, press "Play" or "Scan" to watch the program, or press "Stop" to return to the live broadcast.

Simultaneous Record and Play
Want to record from one source while watching another? You don't have to choose, because playback and recording for both the DVD and built in hard disk drive (HDD) are completely independent. For example, you can record to either the DVD or HDD source and play back video from the other source at the same time.

Graphical Menu Navigation
The RH299H uses a graphical menu to guide you during operation of the recorder. With the menu, you have easy access to all functions as well as visual feedback for your choices.

Two-Way Dubbing from HDD to DVD
You can easily dub recordings from HDD to DVD or from DVD to HDD. The Dubbing menu lets you choose the record mode and speed of the recording process.

Fast Copying up to 12x
Copying between DVD and HDD is a completely digital process and therefore involves no loss of quality in the audio or video. This means that you can transfer back and forth without having to worry about the quality getting worse with each copy 'generation.' It also means that copying can be carried out at the maximum speed possible. When copying from HDD to DVD, the speed of copying depends on the recording mode and the kind of DVD disc you're using.

DV (IEEE 1394) In Connection
To edit or make copies of movies from your digital video camcorder, you can connect it to the recorder using a single DV (IEEE 1394) cable for input and output of audio, video, data, and control signals.

Simplink (HDMI-CEC) Function
Some functions of the RH299H can be controlled by a compatible TV's remote control when the recorder and an LG TV with Simplink are connected through the HDMI connection. Functions controllable by the TV's remote control include Play, Pause, Scan, Skip, Stop, and Power Off, depending on the model.
