Digital Video Recorder on it's way

I've ordered one of these from Maplin because I quite fancy transferring some of my DVD's and VHS's to .avi, it's a little digital video recorder which takes an SD card (perfect for the Ameo) and should allow me to encode them without going through a PC.

I'll post the results of the video encoding on here when I get the gadget (possibly Tomorrow, but more likely Saturday or Monday).
