    Hello All,

    I'd like to use my computer (850 MHz Athlon, 26 GB hard drive + 6.4 GB
    secondary HD, ATI Radion Allinwonder 8500 DV) as a hard drive recorder. I
    don't care if the files get big (2 ~ 3 hours = 4 gig) but I'd rather they
    don't get huge (1 hour = 13 gig). Can anyone recommend a good piece of

    I've found *great* captures on the binary groups ( alt.binaries.startrek
    for example) that pack 45 minutes into something like 400 meg! I believe
    the Divx codex is being used; can this be done in real time on my system?

    You will need a much faster CPU to accomplish this even at low
    Realtime DivX processing and writing to disk is not possible even with a
    3.0GHz CPU.

    Nuts, I was afraid of as much. Thanks for the help.
