Low cost analogue Low/Uncompressed SD to disk, any suggestions?

I have been wanting to make a direct to disk solution from a box video camera, or three cameras for quality recording.

I would like to record to a very small/portable PC, or other small device to disk. I am looking for something to do better than DV25 for a single camera, or as good for each channel for three cameras. I have found a few little pocket PVR's out there, but they are low data rate, which is not very good.

I am interested in pixel shifting HD, like the Film Stream Andromeda does on the Panasonic DVX 100.

Does anybody know any solutions?


Thanks

Wayne.

the only solution is analog capture (since you can not get more from digital than what is sent into the signal), that worked very well until DV and firewire take the place.
At this time, we got P3 and slow disk, so it was a miracle to get the signal properly captured without dropped picture.
Since P4 and very fast disk are common and this is not a problem anymore.
the advantage is you can get 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 at reasonable bandwith using cheap realtime codec like huffyuv.
the only problem will be to find one of these analog capture card.
again the same solution that everybody is currently looking at for HDV, would be to capture directly from component output or Y/C , since many camera have this.
