I've been thinking of getting an HV20 to use as a deck. An Hv20 because it has HDMI, rather than the YUV only of the HV10. Then it occurred to me that if I connect an HV10 to the HTPC using Firewire, and then get one of those little utilities that enables you to control the HV10's VCR capabilities over the Firewire cable, that I could display my archive footage on my HDTV and not need to get the HV20 with its HDMI output. Does that sound reasonable? Yes, I know I had an HV10 and sent it back but now I need the cheapest possible NTSC HV10.
