Does a stand-alone SD DVD recorder exist that has an HD SDI, HDMI, HDV-firewire or HD-firewire input?

If yes, and I'm dubbing from the F70 XDCAM HD deck to that burner (and I know I

While I'm not knowledgeable about the particular kit you're talking about, in general, downconverters allow a choice of side cut, letterbox or squeeze. These three accommodate all uses, just refer to your instruction book for the appropriate menu setting.

I've been seaching high and low for a 16x9 DVD-R for making client proofs before encoding the master on our Sonic SD-1000 encoder. I've stumbled upon the Toshiba DR-400 it records the 16x9 flag correctly, whereas if your DVD playback is set to 4x3, it will be letterboxed, if your playback DVD is set to 16x9 it plays back widescreen. And this puppy has a firewire input. The default "menu" is kinda ugly and I'm trying to figure out how to turn it off all together, but for burning 16x9 proofs this is a winner!

Fazz,

Based on your post, I just ordered one! I hope you're right - I'd given up hope.

The description I read, listed it as having an HDMI connection but it didn't mention firewire.

I'll give it a shot! Thanks so much.

-Thomas

Yeah I was totally blown away when I found this ability buried in this non-discript and cheap burner, I've been searching for months, as we've gone through hoops to letterbox our 16x9 jobs just for the proofing stage. I bought this unit as a default and when reading the manual thought it was a misprint it would record 16x9. On the Avid boards I've recieved replys the Sony GX3 and HX710 also record 16x9. (HX710 also does a 15Mbps datarate...nice) Those appear to be UK models, and I don't know if I want to deal with a grey market unit.
They list Firewie as "DV in". It's on the front panel. I'm going to test the tomorrow.
