Another option: a removable hard drive that you load up with mpgs before
heading out the door to the remote location.  mythrename.pl lets you
easily create symlinks to all your records so you can copy over the
programs from your current machine that you wish to watch onto the
external drive that can be quickly thrown in your luggage to take with
you.  You then just need a mpeg player.  You won't have the most recent
stuff recorded since you left, but you can quickly grab other things you
want to watch.

"Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon loaded with ..."
an external hard drive.

 and much more difficult to find."  -- Terry Pratchett
