The older archos 5 models had optional attachments to record directly from CATV I believe. They were available with high capacity disks, but quite a long time ago. The only one Archos still features on its web site goes by the name A48 http://www.archos.com/products/ta/archo ... us&lang=en
but is probably covered in the "archos 5 with android" area of these forums. They are unusual enough that you would probably have to mail order them from either archos or some site you google up. Don't miss http://www.archos.com/products/ta/archo ... us&lang=en
(but change the country on lower left part of page for these links).
