Motorola Inc.’s cable-equipment unit will debut its long-awaited dual-tuner, HDTV-capable “DCT 6412” digital-video-recorder set-top at this week’s National Show, with availability scheduled by the end of the second quarter.

The DCT 6412 is a dual-tuner, watch-and-record HD DVR that sports a 120-gigabit hard drive, according to Carl McGrath, corporate vice president and general manager of digital-core-gateway products.

It has HD outputs; universal-serial-bus and Ethernet ports; IEEE-1394 fire wire ports; an integrated Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification modem; and 500 millions of instructions per second of processing power.

The second tuner allows watching one channel live while recording on another channel.
