They are cheaper than I have seen them before ($250) and include firewire.
I want to be able to burn DVD discs from my Panasonic MiniDV camcorder and record TV shows for later playback.
Has anyone tried one/hacked one (remove macrovision and Zones)
Or any in a similar price range (to $400)
A quick check of the unit revealed a Samsung Hard disc and Samsung DVD Burner (Just a standard IDE as no surprise) inside.
