The ever-growing Blu-ray camp has a couple of new residents.These two recorders get their release in Japan in December and lucky buyers will get some nifty features including remote programming by mobile and direct transfer to PSP.Twin digital tuners will record two channels at once to the built-in hard drives. Hi-def recordings can then be transferred to 25GB BD discs. Only the pricier V9 gets full 1080p, not that the V7 can be considered cheap.Naturally there's no word on when either might make it here.
