    Hey all,
    I was looking to buy a DVD player/recorder and stumbled upon a DV-in feature on quite a few of them.
    Is it possible, has anyone tried using a DVD player/recorder as a firewire monitoring device?

    Most of them will only accept input from a camera or deck, this is because the DVD recorder wants deck control.

    I have heard that there are some out there that will let you do what you wish, but they are not vary common, and I am betting they are more expensive also.
