Just one word of warning on the DVD-RAM idea.

I also have a Panny DVD/HDD recorder from a few years back (possibly
DMR-EH50, or very similar!), and I found that putting a DVD-RAM disk
into a computer did something screwy to the format of the disk (even
when mounted readonly), that the panny then completely refused to
touch again, even failing to reformat the disk. This happened with
several disks before I gave up on the plan - they are too expensive
to turn into coasters (used them for computer backup disks instead)!

MythTV of course now means that it is gathering dust in a cupboard
