The Neuros MPEG-4 Recorder 2 is essentially a VCR with a twist.  Hook it up to your cable, exactly like you would a VCR.  It will record MPEG-4s of whatever channel you are on, giving you a choice of 4 resolutions.  Once you’ve recorded, either plug into a PC for transfer to an iPOD, or a memory stick for PSP.  XYZ Computing can tell you all about it.
“Video playing is one of the best uses of a portable device and has been getting lots of attention lately. The problem with this has never been playing the video, but rather recording it. The Neuros MPEG-4 Recorder 2 is a “digital VCR for the portable video age”. Think of it as a PVR (or TiVo) for your PSP or iPod Video. Using it you can record video from your television and play it on your portable device. This way you can watch all your favorite programs and not have to pay for anything which you don’t already receive. This way you can maximize the usefulness of your portable media player as well as your television subscription.”
