Thanks. I guess I'd heard rumblings that such devices were getting
cheaper. I'd seen some units marketed by Avid that were *almost*
reasonable but this is getting affordable.
Looks to me as if these units just capture uncompressed video, it would
take a pretty whomping box to do a good job of HD compression in real
time, so I don't think these are practical for mainstream Myth systems.
