 Roll Your Own Digital Video Recorder

O'Reilly brings us: Roll Your Own Digital Video Recorder.

"VDR records TV broadcast signals as MPEG2 format, but the program doesn't actually do any compressing. The broadcast video/audio data itself is already compressed by the station as MPEG2. VDR simply performs some repacking on the data packets in a process that is really only a matter of changing packet sizes and header information."
