The problem with the scenario above, as explained to me by the manufacturer of 200 disk DVD-RAM carousel is that Firewire/Optical disk is not fast enough to store the incoming HD streams. An app would have to be written that can move the data from the hard disk to the RAM drive in two steps, although you can play back from these devices without a problem.
Just think, a DVD-RAM Jukebox is over a TeraByte of storage, which is seen as a single disk for enormous amount of recordings.
|The 1394 Firewire on these DVD recorders is supposed to allow digital-digital dubs from DV camcorders. Since the DV signal is 25Mbits, and the highest HD is 19Mbits, there is no reason why it couldn't record the signal. So bandwidth of the Firewire port isn't the issue.|

I thought that 1394 would easily carry, asa a standard hd info. Is the problem then the disc writing?..or is it that firewire WILL carry only more compressed HD stream??
