1 Hi all,
3 I am looking at digital dvd/hard drive recorders for dvb, and I noticed
4 that a lot of them are coming out with usb nowadays. However, all I can
5 find out about the usb port is that it is for usb _devices_ like usb
6 storage, not for an uplink to your PC.
8 I came across USB gadget support a while ago [1], but from their web
9 page it sounds like you need special hardware, not just any usb port:
11 "Many Linux systems will not be able to use it, since they only have
12 PC-style USB Host (master) hardware in a PC..."
14 can I plug my laptop in so these devices see it as just a large hard
15 drive? I would rather not go through two steps - eg. dvd recorder to
16 dvd to computer; or dvd recorder to usb hd, to computer.
18 Or alternatively, are there any recorders with a usb "uplink"?
20 thanks heaps!
