Back to reality now, I am sure everyone would like to see those prices but when the normal DVD-
R HDD recorder are $600+
I would like to see the prices closer to $1,600 for the bluray version then I'd buy one, but I'd like to see a Sony one to match my TV.
For $1600 you could setup a HTPC to do the same thing and then some. In fact you could probably do it for a lot less if you didn't mind what it looked like or could hide the case behind something.
