Some of the newest TV models have USB connector, and some even have a hard drive to store your favorite programs. If you are unlucky enough to have a plain TV without those options, you can use an external hard drive HD-LBU2/V from Buffalo Japan to record videos right from your HDTV.
This handy device is compatible with Toshiba Regza, Panasonic Viera, Sony Bravia, LG Infinia oraz Sharp Aquos as well as other multimedia players, PS3 consoles, Blu-ray drives and more. Buffalo HD-LBU2/V will be available in stores in about a month in two capacity versions: 1TB and 2TB. Unfortunately if you are not Japanese or you don’t have any friends or relatives in Japan, you may have difficulties to get it. Via 3noobs
