Some of these comments are hilarious!!!….

Add a box? For me, it would allow me to remove three boxes from my system:

My VCR
My DVD player
My CD player.

Simplifies my life significantly.


DVD and CD player is easily done if it has an optical drive. one thign is it could have
support to plug in VCRs
iMovie the VHS tapes ono the HD, and burn them onto a DVD.

that would be kickass!


LOL!!! :D:D:D
