This product has no market. VCRs are dead products and well over 99% of the content put on them is available either on dvd, blue ray or even bit torrent. You might even find snippets of them on YOUTUBE or other sites like it.
I was hoping for a blue ray player/dvd recorder combo with a 250gb hard drive for DVRing as that makes MUCH MORE SENSE than this idea. Obviously there were bunch of marketing guys sitting around trying to find out what the movie Back to the Future was really missing in that antique shop! For good measure, the player can also have a usb & super multi flash box for sdhc and flash cards to seve as content playing, recording, and transfer to & from disc, hard drive and flash media!
That IS something worth buying.. not these $128-$299 pieces of blue ray junk they sell today... innovate the RIGHT way! Also the device MUST be able to encode/decode mpeg2/mpeg4 xvid/divx at upto 720p resolutions, 1080p if they can spare it!
