Ok gang, I'm looking for a digital video recorder that can record from various TV formats (PAL, NTSC, SECAM, etc) straight into MPEG-4 or H.264 and allow me to copy the files over to my Mac for use with my iPod and iTunes.
Note the word "Mac". PC-based solutions - this includes Linux - need not even bother posting.
Looking for a set-top solution, but no Tivo or other US-only systems.
Basically I want a digital "VCR" for recording The Daily Show and The Colbert Report daily from 1am to 2am (my time) as well as other things playing during the day while I'm at work.
Getting it on an iPod is a must so I can pipe it to the TV in my office at work during lunch.
