    Not sure if I´ve got the correct forum but I´ll ask anyway.
    Does anyone have any experience of this little gizmo?basically it turns your pc or laptop into a hard disc video recorder to record analogue signals the same as tivo really.The big advantage though is that you can archive your fave shows onto a cdr as video cd or s video cd or even dvd recordable!
    I was going to get one today but was after a independent view first.

    So the old Miro boys are back in town.

    I nearly went to visit them on one of my trips to Germany. I can't remember where they were. It was either somewhere near Brownsvieg (!) where Voltswagon were on Munich wehre BMW were.

    I'll dust down my German phrase book and have a look.


    I still have a couple of contacts in the digital domain, I'll email them and see what they think.

    seeing as you're in GmbH land, I assume you'll be paying in Euros!
