How best to store HV20-shot HDVp24?

I've been searching through some of the comments here but really haven't found a good answer.

Right now, I'm editing a movie with a portable hard drive connected to my Mac. I've got about 12 tapes of footage on HD now, and am starting to pick and choose which shots I want.

I still have the originals on tape, but I really don't want to go through recapturing them and running them through JES de-interlacer's Inverse Telecine again.

The optimum solution, it seems, is to buy a second hard drive - but I'm wondering if it's possible to get some more stable backup system - maybe tape based? I'd record it back to DV, but - well, there's that whole HDV/24p problem.

Anyway, what are your ideas?

We all fight that issue. I think your second drive is the best answer-- especially for an ongoing edit. A lot of people are talking Blue ray or data HD disks, but with intermediate files, you don't get a lot of storage either.

Let us all know if you find another way.
