Not Linux, but since one option is
Myth,  Linux related.  Linux application

My Panasonic DVD-RAM unit went dark
and died yesterday.  Suiting my needs for
recording programs, and then removing
the 12 to 15 minutes of ads from each 30
minutes of programming,  I first thought
of simply replacing it.

But not so simple.  A look around shows
that Panasonic and its partners that
spearhead the DVD-RAM approach have
apparently abandoned the business.  One
sees ads for "refurbished" units,  which
can be OK, but I'd rather get something

Anyone have any suggestions for a stand
alone unit that might make a good
replacement?  I suspect many units that
record DVD +/- RW would suffice.  But
the units take a beating when used in the
way I described,  and some will probably
last longer than others.

A unit with a hard drive is an option too,
but not one that has a monthly fee.
