With the help of DVD players/recorders you can watch/record videos of high quality, play MP3-CDs, audio CDs and audio DVDs, as well as look through your photos in JPG format. DVD recorders often have an in-built hard disk on which you can record your home videos, edit them and burn them to DVD afterwards, or record your favourite TV programmes so you can watch them later. Some DVD recorders even have automatic ad recognition: simply start watching the movie half an hour or so after the broadcast started and it will skip all those unwanted advertisements for you, so you never need to watch any ads if you don\'t want to!

Technology which allows separation of conditional access functionality from a digital TV receiver-decoder (Host) into a removable conditional access module (CAM). It is also referenced as DVB-CI for Digital Video Broadcast - Common Interface. The host is responsible for tuning to pay TV channels and demodulation of the RF signal, while CAM is responsible for CA descrambling. The Common Interface allows them to communicate with each other.
Other features
USB port
Universal Serial Bus (USB) is an industry standard developed in the mid-1990s that defines the cables, connectors and communications protocols used in a bus for connection, communication, and power supply between computers and electronic devices. USB was designed to standardize the connection of computer peripherals (including keyboards, pointing devices, digital cameras, printers, portable media players, disk drives and network adapters) to personal computers, both to communicate and to supply electric power. It has become commonplace on other devices, such as smartphones, PDAs and video game consoles. USB has effectively replaced a variety of earlier interfaces, such as serial and parallel ports, as well as separate power chargers for portable devices.
