Watching movies on the go is a great little pleasure of the 21st century. But, as with all technology, we take a mile when we're given an inch and we've complained about what we can and cannot get on our little iPod screens. Even though we can buy full episodes of TV online and the Apple Store provides movie rentals from all the major studios, we're spoiled and, rightfully so, want to know why we have to repurchase movies we already own. But now we have the iRecorder. which transfers any video you can see on your television screen to an iPod-compatible MPEG4 file. Without a computer in sight, this nifty gadget will effortlessly reduce a two hour movie into a 2 Gig file.
Simply plug the iRecorder into both your TV and your portable media player (it's compatible with more than just iPods—look below), then take a seat as it compresses your movie and uploads it onto your device.
It will record from analog TV, cable, set top box, satellite receiver box, DVD or your Camcorder. If there's a RCA jack output from your source, you can plug it into the iRecorder's AV-IN jack. There is also an AV OUT for you to work in reverse and play your iPod video on a larger screen.
The USB jack lets you plug in your iPod and store your recorded video directly onto it, but the iRecorder is compatible any other USB device media device that can play MPEG4 files. Available here at I Want One Of Those.
