recordings. Alternatively,
you may format the entire
storage medium to free up
100% capacity again.
Right at the start we had
detected the DivX logo on
the packaging of the GT-
278, so we could hardly wait
to check out this receiver’s
multimedia features.
And we were impressed by
what we discovered: Tsing-
hwa has decided to split up
the Multimedia menu into
the Audio, Images and PVR
sub-areas, and when we
selected Video the receiver
right away showed all video
files that were saved onto
our storage medium.
No matter whether it was
AVCHD, AVI, DivX, FLV,
MOV, MP4, MPEG or TS,
the GT-278 was happy with
any format and flawlessly
played back video in SD and
HD up to 1080p.
What’s more, every time
a video is selected from
the list, the receiver first
presents a thumbnail with
technical details (such as
resolution, duration, file
size, etc.) just below. An-
other touch of a button on
the remote is all it takes for
daily or weekly recording.
As soon as a compatible
USB 2.0 storage medium
(USB memory stick or ex-
ternal USB hard disk, for
example) is attached to
the receiver the time-shift
viewing function becomes
available. Use it to pause
any live transmission and
continue from that very
scene at a later time.
Unfortunately, the GT-278
is only capable of recording
one event at a time. It is,
however, possible, to watch
another channel on the
same frequency while a re-
cording is taking place.
Sooner or later the stor-
age medium might become
filled to the brim, and when
that day arrives you can
easily call up the main menu
in order to delete individual

and you want to start a second
one, you need to stop the first
recording first

exact playback position and
continues from that position
