    Can the iPod Video be used as a Portable Digital Video Recorder like the Archos 500? I want to use a wireless camera and record the video while on the go (no wall plugs) and I have an iPod video and didn't know if it could do the same thing as an Archos before I go buy one.

    Not without any accessories (which I do not believe are available), because the iPod does not have the line in jack like the other device you gave a link for.

    i don't think it's quite that easy, although i did see an interesting link the other day.

    it will be nice when tapes (and capturing) are a thing of the past for the average joe...
