i was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on one of these things? more specifically - what are all of your thoughts on hooking up an external hd and using it as a pvr?
i saw some cf-ide adaptors and figured it would be relatively simple to hook up a hard drive through the cf slot...
the way i figure - about $120 for the mpeg4 recorder - $50 for the adaptor - and another nominal amount for the hard drive
apparently - you can fit in about an hour of tv on a 512mb card...which leads me to believe roughly 200 hours on a 100gb hd - and firmware updates are going open source so i would imagine its only a matter of time before you get some sort of "tivo-like" recording software on it...
