RCA LyraThe new RCA Lyra Audio Video Jukebox was recently displayed at CES 2003:

With a 3.5-in. color video display on an iPod-like music jukebox, this 20GB player will keep track of MP3s, home videos, still photos and other files. Like other jukeboxes, you can transfer data from a PC using the high-speed USB 2.0 connection; what’s different this time is that you can record TV shows from a TiVo or VCR, with up to 80 hours of programming on the lowest setting. You can also play back everything on a TV or stereo.

Price and availability: $400; Summer 2003

This and the Archos Jukebox Multimedia 20 certainly raise expectations for the new iPod. I hope that Apple can keep up with the market they created.
