Has anyone tried one of these systems yet? This one and others like it support NTSC signals so I wonder if picking up the standard UHF signal, like from my Modulus 3000, and watching the video and recording it would work? Am I missing something? It seems like a very simple and silent playback solution. Add a small antenna and a screen hood for your laptop and, what else?

It's ust a question of how good the tuner circuit is in there. Only way to know is to try it, but you might get a very inconsistent signal that the computer doesn't like.
