    Most everyone I know with a hard drive based system has it fail. A bike is a harsh environment and a track bike more so. Lots of vibration and acceleration makes a real poor hard drive environment.

    A 4 channel DVR can record as you describe. (30fps, D1 (720x480), etc)

    I bought the VIO POV1.

    The first lens that they shipped with it worked ok in good weather, but I wanted it for snowmobiling too. When the lens got cold, it contracted and pulled the images out of focus. I also had an issue with one of the units. It wouldn't turn on.

    To VIO's credit, they have worked hard to make everything right. I have a brand new unit and they shipped me their new wide-angle lens for free. The even let me keep the old lens b/c of the trouble and time it took to get me set up.

    I really like the system. The image quality is good, but definitely not Hi-Def. It is an SD-Card video system after all. The huge plus is that it seems like it's built to last.

    I recently got some footage with the wide-angle lens. I'll try to post some up here soon.

    Here is a link to some video recorder information.

    Mobile DVR Comparison www.RearviewCamera.net

    There is information regarding video resolutions, recorder resolutions and record times.

    I bought an older RCA Lyra recorder on Ebay. It was new, but I think a discontinued model. It actually seems like it will work pretty well based on recordings i've made of my garage wall. :-) I'll test it out more at Laguna next month.

    It uses CF memory, the camera wires to the battery on the bike, so less hassle with battery packs, etc. and no tape to worry about or moving parts aside from some buttons to vibrate to death on the track. The only improvement to the recorder side of the setup I would like to make is to wire in a 5V power supply to the recorder and get all day reliability without worrying about the battery in the Lyra coming up short.


    I also want to mount the bullet cam on the gas tank looking through the windshield with with gauges in view, etc. I may try to cobble a mount that attaches to the 'dummy' screws on the gas cap mount. But I thought I'd check to see if anyone knows of a mount I can just buy, or if someone with machining skills might be interested in making a few if I draw it up?

    Chasecam PD100 = 720 x 480, 30fps, ??mbps, max 32GB CF card .... This is DVD quality with the assumption that is records at 4mbps.

    RCA Lyra X2400 = 640 x 480, ??fps, ??mbps, max 2GB CF card .... This is VGA quality with the assumption that is records at 30fps.

    I think that the recorder choice depends on your plans for the final video result. Do you want it for youtube or to create broadcast quality videos .... John Stead
