The all-in-one design does away with troublesome connecting cables and the single remote control offers a new level of simple, easy operability. For example, users can navigate the TV-viewing, disc-playing, recording, and pre-set record functions all with just one action, and the newly developed Motion Guide offers "one-shot disc play" by playing discs automatically when they are inserted.
