Bought one of these
which will record to one of these
Found the Acer Aspire at Officeddepot.com for $350. This might work or it might not. I wanted to give it a shot, and if it does not I can use the items for other uses very easily. I grabbed the idea from another forum. We will see. Once I test it out, I will need to find the right cable connectors and a splitter.
