Do you tape races?

If you do tape races, how long do you save them? I have some old GP races, and WSBK from 2001. What format do you tape them on?

I still have AMA races from the 99 and 2000 season on vhs, but the quality is not very good.

Have you checked to see how much HD video you can get on a standard disk? I don't think it's much at the highest quality.

I DVR everything. I hate commercials and interviews....and if the racing is boring I'll FF to the end. I haven't owned a VCR in like 5 years, and threw away the tapes long ago.

If you have the ethernet port on the back, supposedly they are going to write software so you can just hook that box to your network. I hope they do it soon. I hooked mine up the other day for shits and giggles and it would not recognize it. DAMN!!!
