Users can access up to 15,000 audio tracks, five hours of video or 8,400 images downloaded from the PC or recorded from the TV. Or choose to purchase or rent the player’s content from a growing number of PlaysForSure services.
By simply setting the timer, the PMC7230 records selected TV shows in high-quality MPEG 4 format. The media player allows up to five hours of video playtime or music for up to 18 hours. The player has a 3.5-inch LCD screen.
The Portable Media Center synchronizes instantly with Windows XP.
