This looks like a very interesting development, but why on earth did they
not include a hard drive?

The system lacks the functionality of systems such as TiVo or Sky+, and the
idea that it is limited to the capacity of a single DVD disc is ridiculous.

They could have at least made the DVD recording element DVD-RAM, that way
they would have had some of the functionality of a hard disc based system.
