Three DVRs released in Japan, still lack Blu-ray support, opting instead for standard DVD recording.

There are a lot of times when it’s good, even appropriate to be “kickin it old school”. For example, when you’re at a wedding and you’re trying to impress one of the bridesmaids with your sweet moves. It might not appropriate though, when you’re a company who just lost a format war and is trying to connect to a consumer electronics market that’s rapidly leaving you behind.

According to Akihabara News ,Toshiba has introduced a trio of DVRs with the 2TB RD-X9 as the superior model. Able to store a great deal of video on the built in hard drive, the RD-X9 is incredibly functional. It does however, still lack Blu-ray support, opting instead for standard DVD recording.
