I have 2 different HDD dvd recorders, a Toshiba and an ilo. The ilo is acting up and I plan to replace the dvd drive. I want to step up to what I really want....a hdd based recorder that will record in a standard Divx avi format. I want to be able to move the files directly to my pc if possible. I have a 40 gig usb drive for file transfers. So, is there a DVD recorder with the following features: HDD (at least 80 gig) records from source and writes DivX avi files to either the HDD or direct to dvd+-r can write saved files to dvd in standard dvd format so disc will play in standard dvd player (no DivX support) would also like a usb port to move files, but not a requirement. DVD+-RW's will do if usb is not available.
