Are there any dual purpose DVD Recorders out there? It would be great to have a unit with analog inputs for recording directly to DVD from a VCR or older camcorder - BUT, why can't the same unit be also utilized as a PC DVD burner to backup data, etc? I have been looking at the Gateway AR-230 for $299 after rebate - I have been told that it will at least copy DV-AVI video off my computer via FireWire. My delima is that I have about 30 Hi8 camcorder tapes that I need to get moved over to DVD fairly quickly - my Hi8 cam died and a friend is letting me borrow his Hi8 cam so I can get my tapes converted, but he needs his cam back for the holidays. It looks like the home-theater oriented recorders are setup to record from an analog input to DVD on the fly (which is a necessity for me at the moment). Any advice greatly appreciated.
