Video Recording Device for ground station
My old Hi-8 based cam corder has a broken firewire port again. I've taken it apart and can't find the break in the solder but it must be there someplace. I've had it for nearly 7 years now so I guess it is time to move on.
Is there a list someplace that has decent recording devices for FPV use? Apparently having the ability to record video from a composite input is not a big feature these days on new camera's. I bought one a while back and it could send video out to the composite port, but not capture it.

I am using a Sony DCR-DVD405E camera to capture form my FPV video link. The nice thing is that I can stick the mini DVD from the camera straight into my PC DVD drive and copy MPG videos to my computer.
I originally bought it mostly for my wife to replace our old Hi-8 camera, but I made sure it had analog input for my own uses as well

I use the Pinnacle video transfer device, it's a quite cheap solution and it works fine!
I record the vid on to a usb memory stick, very easy just one button..

Forget the Pinnacle PVT guys, it's just barely acceptable for recording with.
I've had one for 12months, very average recording quality.
And will drop out of recording resulting in loss of file on a bad signal.
It doesn't like Diversity boxs either.
Using a miniDV camera with AV in as a recorder is the way to go for best quality.
Here is the thread listing the cameras that have AV-in, and users that use them.
Hasn't been updated for 3 weeks, but heck. lol
