Hiya hunnie, its fine, alot assume it is, i wish it was haha! Thanks for editing your thread xxx

takes a 2.5 inch IDE drive. Bear in mind these are ££££'s more per GB than Sata.

Hmmmm.

I want to take some stuff off my Sky HD box for my mum, which hasn't been recorded in HD.


Could this be used with an external 2.5" hard drive to record from that or will it only play from the external drive and would an internal to write to for recording tv?


Are there any alternatives about as not come across these before.

yes may be but also you can get an IDE to sata converter from ebay for a few pounds - don't know what they are like ! never tried one ! - but an option that's all

Does it support recording to a 264 or mp4 based codec?

To answer my own questions, it doesn't appear to record to USB so with the costs of getting an internal hard drive or £38, I'm guessing there will be a better option about for my needs.

So no MKV or x264?

It's likely there won't be room inside for an SATA to IDE adapter.

£14 and no 3D??? tsk, cold (_;)

Video in: Composite

every 1 going hdmi these days i would stuggle to plug anything in to it..

can this record from Virgin Media?

Can this be used to transport me through time?

Hmmm obsolete interfaces and low capacity put me off.

I have a friend who has this - the video quality is nothing short of shocking. He regrets his purchase and is just using it as an external hard drive now.

analogue signal wont help

Yep, the video recording quality is the worst I've seen on a digital device.

Is there a firmware update to fix this ?

The problem with this device is the quality of the video. It can only be described as poor at best. I bought one for converting video from VHS/DVD and I have to say this would be a waste of time. Daft as it sounds the 'low' video setting gives the best results as there is a problem with the video being a bit jerky (NOT SMOOTH). The low setting appears to not be quite as badly affected as the higher bitrate alternatives. Luckily I had a spare HDD that was laying around from a laptop HDD upgrade, so I was able to try this out without spending more cash on a HDD. I have to say that on the whole I am disappointed with the results from this device. I have however found a use for it. I am now using it on its 'low' setting to record footage from my security cameras (for this it is quite good). I would not recommend this for anything of any quality, as it just wont deliver. No firmware updates have been found to correct these issues and seeing as the device is quite old now, I would be suprised if any turn up. I cant even find this listed on Emprex.com. Despite my bad results, if I had a spare HDD hanging about, it still might be worth a play, but if you are looking for a qulity device to give results, then this is not for you. For a tenner (thats what I paid), I am quite happy to have one around. Still a pity that emprex cant address the problems and make it work better. If you want a better device go for the Emprex ME1-V2.
