on camera HD recording.....

What would it take to build (I'm not being naive here = just curious) a recordable hard disk. Let's see a face plate holding a video card with some sort of CPU unit (?) and software on an attachable mother board (whatever size that might be) to capture in different formats? Removable firewire drives to plug into the unit. Hummm, any of the tech guys in the group have any ideas?

not sure why you would want a videocard

essentially what you need is a computer and a hard drive and a firewire port. The computer needs to be able to talk to the DV camera via firewire and record the data stream coming from the camera. It would also help if it could convert the data on the fly to different formats

Alltogether not that complicated but probably a lot cheaper to simply buy a firestore which does exactly that.
