If you are interested in recording from TV onto Digital Cards etc or bakcing up Video's on to disk then this is the product. Currently Maplin are offing the Neuros OSD for £100 off.

The Neuros OSD connects to your TV or home theatre system and allows you to archive all of your DVDs, VHS tapes and video content. Plug the Neuros OSD into your TV, connect it to your DVD Player or VCR, and safely and legally transfer your movies into a digital library. With the Neuros OSD, you can store hundreds of hours of video in one location by installing a hard drive (sold separately) and get rid of those bulky cases, put an end to DVD damage, and instantly access any of your videos, with the push of a button on a remote. You can even transfer your video content to a portable device (video iPod, PSP, mobile phone, etc.) to watch on the go, or email your home movies to friends and family.

Hmmm.... I wonder if things have improved since [with firmware update(s)]? :thinking:

That review was a year ago and it is open source based technology. Not liking the look of what seems like composite only connection for video though.........
#3
Thanks, I bought one.
This is mostly for Standard Definition recording; transferring VHS tapes, recording from a regular Sky box etc.
If you want to record the channels available on Freeview, buy a Freeview+ PVR, you'll get better pictures. If you want a machine to stream from your computer to your TV, Popcorn Hour is the current favourite I believe.

Thanks, bought one, mainly for the direct record to MP4 for the PSP.
Don't forget the 4% Quidco (£1.60)

Ideal for getting those unwatched (as yet) tv series off of the Sky+ box and onto my portable. :thumbsup:

All local branches are out of stock though, so I hope I can get one mail order. :whistling:

I get an error page when trying to add to basket.

Interesting little gadget at "toyshop" price - instore stock levels seem non-existent certainly anywhere near me, so that would leave delivery the only option.

I have a Hauppauge MVP which has similar playback functions to this (especially with 3rd party software), but this has recording capabilities too, admittedly a bit basic all round, so I could be tempted, although this is a bit crude by all standards.

where is this on the website? tried searching for it with no joy.
#9
How annoying the one time a maplin deal is actually what I've been looking for and want it gets taken off their website.
#10
I got mine today! They pulled it from the website. Looks great!
#11
Mine turned up this morning at 8:10 (next day, nice for free postage !). It's smaller than I thought, just over the size of a CD case and about 3 stacked CD cases high.
Seems to be fine just having an initial play with it. UPnP finds my TVersity server but not my Mediatomb one although the Xvids are playing back great so far. Not tried any recording yet though.
The only blip I've ran into has been the firmware updater saying it needs 128MB on a CF card to download....

Ah, it was the uPnP that put me off... it seems they have made a decision not to push the uPnP functions, or even disable them... but at least it is workable I see :-)

Ok since I didn't manage to get my hands on one, can anyone give me any alternatives, basically I want to record off the sky+ box a couple of programmes to clean up some disk space. And be able to send stuff from my pc to the tv in the front room.

Unfortunately, this would have been the ideal device for you.

Not recommendations, just a suggestions:-

Be careful, there seems to be two types of the above device, one that records and one that doesn't.

I built a cheap-ish PC recorder using a 1Ghz P3 and an analog TV card with S-VHS input, cost around £50 from ebay bits.

What kind of TV input are you wanting to send pictures to ?

Thanks amdavies, at the moment its a standard tv to skyplus box setup. Awaiting a good deal on a 42" 1080p full hd tv - sony, samsung etc. I know it sounds weird but in this case audio quality over picture quality is better. The couple of programmes I wanted to take off the sky+ box and put on a external hard drive to watch on a pc are for my brother whose blind so picture quality doesn't really matter too much. He doesn't have sky at his house only freeview and he can't justify getting sky or freesat for just one channel that has a couple of good programmes. Or waiting for the series to be on dvd and make me buy it.

I think I just might have to keep my eyes out on ebay etc.
