You can buy a mini hi-fi/stereo etc which incorporates a CD player and a cassette. As far as I can see, a DVD is the visual version of a CD, and the videotape, the equivalent of a cassette. If you can buy stereo systems then why not a DVD video?

Then you could buy DVD films and all the other things you use a DVD for, computing etc, but still record (TV programmes, DVD films) onto a videotape, all on one machine. Simple.

       I've seen one, but I'm still figuring out how Macrovision fits into all this.   

       (For those who don't know, Macrovision is a type of copy protection that creates highly annoying picture distortion if you try to record DVD to tape. This is why DVD manuals say not to route your DVD through your VCR. So in an all-in-one box, is there a bypass or something?)
