Buffalo Japan also launched the HD-AMC3.0TU3 / V family of external hard drives that can record TV. Available in 3 TB, 2 TB, and 1 TB capacities, these drives can be programmed to independently record TV while you're away, so you can catch up with your favourite programmes later. Since the native logic of the drive has address-space limitations, the drive can be switched between a virtual partition mode, where the logic sees the installed 3 TB HDD as two 1.5 TB partitions, letting you switch between the two when recording, or as a single solid 3 TB volume that can be accessed by PCs with support for large address-space. This mode doesn't apply to the 2 TB and 1 TB models. The drive also has an LED-based indicator that gives you a rough measurement of the free-space left. The drive connects to DTV over interfaces localized to the markets it's selling in, it connects to the PC over fast USB 3.0 interface. Buffalo will launch these drives in early March, pricing was not revealed.
