Sony WV-DR7 vs. JVC SR-VS30U

I've seen only a few comments on each of these machines... basically to the tune of "The DR7 is great!" and "I've seen some problems with the JVCs".

I'm looking to confirm that or get other opinions before making my purchase... I obviously like the $1150 price on the 30U (or $900 on the 20U) better than the $1800 or so it looks like the DR7s are going for now. I don't think the full-size DV capability is worth $500 to me, and the no US warranty scares me, but if the Sony is really that much better a unit than the JVC I'm sure I'll be better off paying more for it now!

Any comments at all, whether you've used them yourself or just heard others experiences, is welcome!

(btw, I'm using an XL1s and Pinnacle Pro-One)

Check with Pinnacle and make sure they support that deck. Not all decks work with every NLE. Pinnacle will let you know if they have had problems with a deck. Anyone using any of these decks?

Found another direct harddisk recorder

Anyone ever tried this product? Sounds interesting since it is
so very small. It doesn't seem to automatically record (like the
firestore) though. You have to hit the record button on it. They
are also claiming a new model is coming, so perhaps that one
will have that feature.

scheduling software or other assistant?

What are the alternatives to Movie Magic Scheduling for no budget filmmakers. Any suggestions for an organizationally impaired filmmaker?
