I have a new Mitsubishi 65" DLP TV that has 2 1394 fire wire ports the TV goes into a record function when you hit the record button and shows times and everything else but has nothing to record onto. I am wondering if i just get a fire wire hard drive if i can record like would with a DVR.

Not being fimular with Ieee recording I'm starting to learn a few things. The owners manual (page 82) describes a A/V Disk. I've found that to be more than just a simple Hard drive attached via the ieee port.

Found some interisting links... might want to check them out..

All articles refer back to either a DVCR or Digital Hard drive/DVD Recorder. Nothing about just plugging in a Hard Drive to the TV. Sounds like you need the IEEE device to have the same functions of a regular DVD/HARD DRIVE RECORDER OR DVCR RECORDER THE TV JUST INTERFACES DIRECTLY TO THAT DEVICE AND THE TV TELLS IT WHAT TO DO

It looks like it is setup to work with a DVR setup

or a box like RCA makes
but what is the difference.
