I just aquired an older model DVHS recorder. From what I can gather, it appears that it was originally made by Hitachi and isn't supported anymore. That aside, I'm curious if anyone has used one of these units? Also, the the digital a/v link a standard 1394 firewire link? If so can this be used to record from my Minidv sony camcorder via the firewire? And/or can it be used to connect to my PC and record directly from the pc's firewire port. If so, what sort of driver do I use?


Thanks for advice!

I have a couple of the Hughes HDR-205's, but use them only for recording from DirecTv. Although I am into HD this unit allows recording the non HD premium channels that feature 5.1 DD.


The firewire link (6 X 4) works only with the earlier Hughes platinum model D*** receivers, as far as I know.


I don't have the other info you request.
