Astro Max – Malaysian’s Tivo


Malaysians can now record up to 60 hours of their favourite programmes without the need of any external devices. They can also pause and rewind “liveâ€? television so that they will never miss a moment of their favourite programmes or sports broadcasts. With the new Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), the Astro MAX allows for easy recordings of Astro programmes.

“With the Astro MAX, subscribers can now watch whatever they want, whenever they want. We are giving the chance to all Malaysians to finally be able to take control of their TV viewing,â€? said Rohana Rozhan, Chief Executive Officer of Astro TV. The Astro MAX offers the benefits of DVD recording and viewing – minus the needs for tapes and DVD-Rs.

“Astro MAX is a one-stop solution centre. Everything you need is found on the Astro MAX without the need of any other external devices. It is the latest evolution of Astro services,â€? she added.

The Astro MAX is integrated with the latest EPG from Astro to ensure that all the functions of Astro MAX can be performed easily. Subscribers need to only locate their favourite programme through the EPG and press the Record button.

Astro MAX subscribers can also choose to record the current programme they are watching instantly by just clicking the record button. They can record programmes via the new on-screen TV Guide and Info banner and set recordings on a daily or weekly basis.

Astro MAX also features the Planner where subscribers have an easy reference of all recordings on their Astro MAX. It checks for hard disk space availability and any recording conflicts between scheduled recordings.

Other than recording, Astro MAX allows users to pause live action and resume watching whenever they are ready. Not only that, if they want to view the same scene again, Astro MAX allows them to rewind the show up to a buffer of 30 minutes. Viewers can also watch actions on screen at a slower speed by using the slow motion function while in forward mode.

“The Astro MAX is the perfect complement to the vast variety of content we have over the Astro platform. With all the features of the Astro MAX, we are offering our subscribers the freedom to watch all the great programmes that are available. We will continue to invest in content, both local and foreign, to ensure that our customer value proposition stays fresh and relevant. And as the content grows, with the Astro MAX, our subscribers can be sure to never miss a single moment of their favourite programmes,â€? said Rohana.

    Aku pakai River Past Screen Recorder.. ok gak la – siap boleh direct xvid encoding (tapi kena komputer yang power la). sesapa yang nak cracknya bleh mintak aku.. hu ha ha.

    Tapi tak leh la nak schedule rakaman cam tivo. so tak guna gak la sebab aku tak leh nak rakam semifinal WC06 pasal ada kelas. kalo nak donlot torrent, dah berita basi baru dapat tengok.

    This blog appears to recieve a large ammount of visitors. How do you get traffic to it? It gives a nice unique spin on things. I guess having something real or substantial to talk about is the most important factor.
