Thanks for the advice - that's why I asked whether it was appropriate
to send to -dev.

When you mention the "Instant Recording" feature, are you talking
about the feature that let you press 'R' while watching Live TV to
record? As I mentioned earlier in this thread, that feature is
somewhat similar to what I'm talking about, but not the same thing.

I guess if I want this bad enough I'll be sitting down with the code
soon. I need *some* way to deal with my stack of home video tapes.
Just have to decide what the best way is.
