UK cable operator orders HD set-top box from Scientific-Atlanta

The new PVR set-top box incorporates a 160GB hard drive and three video tuners.

Scientific-Atlanta will supply new personal video recorder (PVR) set-top boxes to Telewest Global customers later this year.

The new PVR set-top box incorporates a 160GB hard drive and three video tuners, which will allow viewers to watch Telewest’s digital TV service while simultaneously recording two programs. This is a step forward from many existing PVRs, which can only process two channels at once. The set-top box will also allow customers to pause and instantly rewind live TV if their viewing is interrupted, so they never have to miss a moment of their favorite programs. The device will be able to store around 80 hours of programs.

The PVR will also deliver HDTV content in the future.
