Sandisk V-Mate Video Memory Card Recorder


The Sandisk V-Mate Video Memory Card Recorder is basically a VCR but instead of using VHS tapes it uses memory cards.  The device supports SD, SDHC, miniSDHC, microSDHC, RS-MMC, Memory Stick PRO Duo cards and can record in MP4, 3GP, and 3G2 formats up to 640 x 480 at 30 FPS.  You can plug in anything that has composite (yellow/white/red) outputs such as a DVD player, DirecTV receiver, cable box, or camera.  It has an IR emitter/receiver so it can control  your satellite/cable receiver.  In the following youtube video, I demonstrate how simple it is to record a TV show from my DirecTV straight to my microSD card which I can then directly play on my Nokia N97.

This little device is great for people like me that can’t figure out how to capture video onto their computer and encode it into a format thats playable on their mobile device.  The perfect sceneria for this device is if you want to record your favorite late night TV show and view it the next morning on the train to work.  You can program the device to record at your desired time and the next morning you just take out the memory card and watch on video on your phone on the metro.

Available at you local B&M Gamestop for only $9.99.  You can check for inventory in your area here.  I had to actually ask the Gamestop dude to check the stock room and they happened to have one in the back.
