You CAN Record Regular TV (SDTV)... IF...

You CAN record SDTV (regular TV), but ONLY from digital channels. The statations must be digital in order for them to go out over the firewire port.

Digital stations and HDTV are in the same format coming over the firewire.... MPEG2 Transport Stream. The HD content is just higher resolution, and a lot more data.

So basically if i have Time Warner Digital Cable, or Everest Digital Cable, i just need to call and request to have a new digital cable box sent out with the firewire option. then i could record non-HDTV programming for personal viewing (i.e., high tech dvr). Hmmmm, DEF something to look into!
