    Of course you could. You can record any signal you get for up to 6 hours.

    In it's 3 hr mode the quality will be MUCH better than VHS and I think it will record at about 400 lines.

    The only noise will come from your signal and mpeg compression artifacts with very little video jitter and a high signal to noise ratio.

    The sound will have unnoticible levels of hiss unless your signal has it.

    It will also output in prog scan if you have a compatible display which SHOULD (but is yet untested) remove the jaggies from the diagonal lines which mark the sides of the track.

    The quality is so good that at first you may have difficulty telling the difference between the recording and the live broadcast but you will get sensitive to the mpeg blockiness over time but it won't be a problem like VHS.

    Colors will also be far more saturated.

    Hope this helps. A dvd recorder at it's worst is still better than VHS at its best.

    Sorry, no idea, I'm waiting for a review myself as it's a unit I'm really interested in.

    Cheers,
    Cal.
