My friend (at what age does "elderly" start? She's defying that classification) is (for whatever reason ) into archiving telly. Despite my indications years ago she was going about it the hard way, she's elderly enough not to see what she does as "broken", and was using a DVD recorder to record to DVD-RAM (I think), take the disc to her PC (money does not seem to be an object - when she fills one up or it breaks she just buys another or another USB drive - and that includes filling up iPads with video), runs DVD Decryptor on it, then instead of using a compatible player relies on WMP and has to run a conversion on the VOB.A friend needs to replace her TV and is complaining the new ones don't have a SCART socket (I've pointed her at a SCART-HDMI converter).
She just had to replace her telly and was complaining that there are no SCART sockets these days, so I suggested an eBay SCART to HDMI converter for less than a tenner - but it seems her DVD recorder is broken now too, so I have proposed sourcing a HDR-FOX and to use that with CF to make her recordings directly available across the network.
I'll lend her my cold spare for the moment, see how she gets on. Now, where's that eBay listing for compatible WiFi dongles...
