Not exactly a regular DVD recorder you may already find at state of the art livingrooms, but something with more functionality instead. The DVDirect offers PC-like features, in a PC-less environment.
An interesting and a neat concept, in an extremely geeky way, but is it just me or why am I missing the point and purpose of this device? See for your selves..
The drive can also be connected to a camcorder or VCR for tape-to-disc recording real time. However, while the machine will encode video in MPEG 2 format - automatically creating new chapters every five, ten or 15 minutes, if you wish - it only supports DVD+R single- and dual-layer discs, which potentially limits discs' playback on domestic DVD players.Source: TheRegister
