Test Report for KAON Digital Multimedia Recorder KVR 1000

KAON Digital Multimedia Recorder KVR 1000

The KVR 1000 from Kaon is quite something to look at. It comes with 4000 channels, two CI slots and DiSEqC 1.3. It has an 80 GB hard drive and two tuners. It has the ability to record programmes and to put analogue programmes on to the hard drive plus the ability to control the receiver via the internet.

The KVR 1000 has a flat appearance. The front panel is very reflective. There are two CI slots for use with various CA modules for pay TV acception. In the middle is a large opening with a portable hard drive. There is also a USB connection for the transfer of MP3 files, pictures, data and video files between the KVR 1000 and your PC. There is a five LED’s to show the status of the sensor, standby, signal lock, hard drive and remote control functions. The display shows the current channel, status of external camera, NTSC/PAL, recording functions, audio mode and the time.

The rear panel of KVR 1000 is very attractive. There are two IF inputs, two scart jacks for TV and VCR connection, a serial interface to upload new receiver software, a UHF modulator output and analogue stereo audio outputs on a set of three RCA jacks. There are also two analogue inputs for video and stereo audio for connection of webcam or security camera. It has the best audio quality. There is also S-VHS output. There is even an Ethernet Jack for connection to a network. There is also a programmable 0/12 volts on the KVR 1000.

On turning for the first time, the KVR 1000 wants to know what language it should be selected. The user can choose between English, Spanish, Suomi, Norwegian, Swedish, German, French, Turkish, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Albanian, Indonesian, Portuguese, Farsi and Arabic. After the language selection, the large TV screen will appear. The parameters for picture format, audio connection, modulator and time must be set up. The KVR 1000 can be used with a single, multifeed or motorized antenna. There is also the facility for scanning of four satellites. All known values for the local oscillator frequencies are available. For the automatic channel scan come to the standard questions for network yes/no and also whether all or just freely receivable channels should be scanned for.

The KVR 1000 has very fast automatic channel scanning function. The edit menu allows the user to move channels, lock, delete or transfer them into one of eight favourites lists. Channels can also be sorted on their content (sports, news, movies etc). The Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) shows the programme information. The info button only displays information for the current programme and the programme immediately after that. The info bar shows the channel data, satellite, time and signal strength and complete technical reception parameters.

The multi video function is very appealing one. It allows you to display either 4, 9, 10, 13 or 16 channels on the TV screen. It allows you to keep an eye on multiple channels at the same time. The picture in picture (PIP) function can be activated in this manner. There is also a zoom function that you can take a closer look at your favourite actor. A 20-event timer helps to prevent you from missing any programme or can be sued to set up future recordings on the hard drive or a VCR.

The built-in hard drive recorder is a familiar sight and it is portable. If you are disturbed by a phone call during watching a programme, a single push of a button on the remote control starts recording that programme when you receive a phone call, simply push that same button a second time to continue watching the programme from the point of the interruption. KVR 1000 can record six channels at the same time while playing back a programme that was already recorded. The MP3 files gathered from the PC to the KVR 1000 via the USB 2.0 port. Pictures and other data can be transferred in the same way. KVR 1000 can record analog content from an external source. Old recordings on a video cassette can be archived on a hard drive. You can also select whether the recording should be in NTSC or PAL format. If you are away from home and want to keep eye on your home. The KVR 1000 simply install a wireless camera and connect the receiver of this camera to the audio/video inputs of the KVR 1000. Regardless where you are, you need only the internet connection. The channels can be selected and viewed over this internet connection. The KVR 1000 can also be remotely controlled via this connection.
