Writing files back to Sony HDV cameras

Just wondering ... other than Cineform's HDLink, has anyone written a small standalone utility that will write transport streams back to the Sony cameras (HC1, A1, FX1 etc)?

Something equivalent to what WrtDVHS provides for the JVCs?

Canopus Edius comes with a utility called MPEG-TS Writer (or something like that) which does a capable job of writing back to the camera.

Thanks - I just checked and yes that's the correct name.

I'm kinda hoping there's a small app that's NLE-independent, so I just chuck it on a laptop or whatever if I suddenly needed to get material off archival DVDs and onto tape.

(I'm assuming here that one needs to do a full install of Edius to get MPEG TS Writer itself installed...right?)

I was looking for the same thing for ages, mainly so that I could choose free or low cost basic editing software to just make a few changes before writing back to tape. I never found one, but there's a more fundamental problem, which is that a lot of those cheap editors (like Womble) break the GOP structure so that the final HDV can't be written back to tape anyway.

At least that's my understanding.
