Buffalo's hard drives finished their long walk from the desktop to the living room, with a new series of drives carrying the capability to connect to most new HDTVs over USB, and acting as both a video recorder, and a media library, with up to 2 TB of voluminous storage. The HD-LBU2/V drives from Buffalo use USB 2.0 to connect to various kinds of USB-ready HDTVs such as Regza from Toshiba, Viera from Panasonic, Sony's Bravia , Sharp's Aquos, as well as LG's Infinia. Measuring 39 x 123 x 189 mm, and weighing about 1 kg, Buffalo's drives are available in 1 TB and 2 TB capacities. Buffalo will initially launch the drives in the Japanese market, and thereafter US and Europe.

So will you be able to record OTA (Over The Air) or QAM (Cable) or both? My guess is probably only OTA but does anyone else have more info? It doesn't actually give any info about what you can record in the article.

An interesting idea anyways.
