    It's extremely unlikely... the firewire input will be for video cameras....

    tried hooking up my DVD recorder to my mac... no luck :-/ was DV in and not out :-/
    And my mac wouldnt recognize the DVD player to try and record video out.. so it wouldnt send any video out...

    Heh.. thought I would share this interesting tidbit - there's a way to trick it into recording the video. It goes something like this - plug in a second firewire video device. For example, if you hook up both your camcorder and the DVD stand-alone, you'll get the video on the stand-alone, in digital quality!

    This obviously doesn't help if you're trying to burn a data DVD, but if you just want to dump some vid to DVD, it's pretty nice.
