"I have recently been working on a project, the goal of which is
to enable me to capture any arbitrary video to hard drive, edit it
using one or more Non-Linear Editing (NLE) tools, and then archive
the result to digital video tape, DVD-RAM, CD-R, or, most ideally,
"While affordable DVD-R remains promise-ware from Apple (note
the 7-10 week delivery schedule if you actually try to order one of
these), I had great success in recording an episode of Star Trek
Voyager, editing out the commercials, moving the intro sequence to
the very beginning, and then saving the result in a 450 MB file of
surprisingly near-DVD quality on a single 50 cent CD-R disk. All of
this under Linux, using either free software or, where necessary,
very inexpensive commercial software."
