Formac Studio TVR - owner impressions/thoughts?
I saw one of these at the Apple Store in Chicago and I immediately lusted after it. My family has a TiVo back home, which I found to be incredibly amazingly mindbendingly useful, and having one hooked up to my Mac would just be great. I read Macworld's review of the TVR, but I didn't find it very helpful.
I'm especially interested to know if it's possible to edit out the commercials from recorded shows and export them via Quicktime to various formats. All that I've heard is that you can burn to SVCD or DVD, but that's not very useful for me (I have a 160GB HD, it's a lot handier just to export to MP4 than to have to keep a bunch of CDs unscratched and organized).
So, owners, if there are any out there, how is it? Are there any features it lacks which you feel are significant? Any gripes? Any comments in general? (EyeTV owners, feel free to chime in about the pros and cons of that as well.)
