RCA/Thomson's Ageless Media Devices

RCA has all your needs of yesteryear covered with their DRC8335 "Full Recording Solution" DVD/VCR combo. NTSC and ATSC TV tuners have your new- and old-school programs under control. Play and record VHS and DVD media with the touch of a button for $250 this April. More ancient technologies (and one modern one) after the jump.

Another example of RCA's aging prowess is the DTA800 digital TV adapter. This little box picks up those new-fangled digital television signals and down-converts them to analog so your forty-year-old TV can play them (seriously, that's the RCA booth demo setup). Pricing is unavailable, probably because nobody knows if anybody will actually want to buy one of these things.

Rounding out the list of products to keep your aging system in useable shape, the Thomson wireless Music Box collects internet radio streams or other digital audio sources and connects them to your home stereo system for playback. It is managed from one of Thomson's new DECT-equipped phones or any other WiFi or UPnP device.

Not content to simply master the past, RCA also debuted the MPC4000 Laptop Teleceiver, a USB device that converts your PC into a full-fledged television. The small receiver will pick up and record both digital and analog signals. RCA thinks the Teleceiver is a perfect solution for cramped spaces like dorm rooms, and with a $200 price tag this April, they may have some takers.
