Nnovia vs Firestore for JVCHD110U?

I have 2 Citidisc HDV 100gb drives for my JVC camera.

And I hate them, with all of my heart.
I grow tired of those wonderfull 8 minute clips, you know, the ones with dropped frames that I was told would never happen.
I also hate how after 2-3 hours the drives decide to just stop recording, even though there is plenty of power, and space on the drives.

So I am looking for a new DTD soloution. I was looking into the Firestore for my JVC camera, when I was pointed to the Nnovia QC120 for HDV.

From what I was told by the rep, the Nnovia will record say 4 hours non stop, one big file. I dont care if it is a M2T file, as I use MPEG Streamclip to convert for FCP, however a 720P30 QT file would make me even more happy.

So, the Nnovia QC120 from what I am told is the only NTFS drive soloution out there, which is where I get the non "8 minute" clips.

Is this true?
Anyone have the Nnovia, what about the firestore? how do the 2 compare.
I plan on using a AB gold mount kit to keep from using external batteries like I do with the Citidisk. How does the gold mount do for energy consumption do? will I loose say 45 minutes off of the AB batts if I go that route?. I need more details than what I was given with the CD drives.

I need some stories here, these things are not cheap and I allready spent XX amount on all that Citidisk crap as it is.

Need A D2D with analog component input

Does this exist? Want to output from a switcher using analog component into a D2D to have a hard drive based recording. Looking for a least 3-4 hours...

Try this thread. They are trying to do this while trying to avoid the more expensive HD SDI solution.

Hope this helps.
