Lots of PVR related questions
My old 8300 SD doesn't.
1) Ability to view at 1.5x speed with sound. My standard Pioneer DVR (which records analog cable to hard disk) can playback this way (the pitch of the sound doesn't change, just the speed). It's great for watching certain shows that aren't too quick moving or quick sounding.
2) Ability to record two concurrent shows (say, a 1 hour show at 9pm followed by a 1 hour show at 10pm) with no "lost" time in between. Even if the shows are on the same channel, there are several seconds of unrecorded time during the switchover. My Pioneer DVR has the same problem. Curiously, every VCR I ever owned did NOT have this problem. Worst case scenario with my old VCRs was a 1-frame "click" during the switchover.
3) Ability to memorize where a stopped show was stopped. My Pioneer DVR will memorize (even months later) where every single recorded show was stopped if it happened before the ending. It even memorizes the DVD, even long after power-off (obviously not if you eject the DVD). My 8300 only memorizes 1 show's stopped location, and even that disappears after maybe a day or so.
