Gifts, Contests, Easter Eggs A few days ago we published a review of the Linux-based Neuros OSD recorder and player. Now, you can win one of these devices! All you have to do is research on the product to find out its current capabilities, and then comment below with suggestions on how to make it better and with ideas for new applications and hacks. The Neuros Technology guys will pick the best idea in 3 days time and we will provide them with the winner's email address so they can send him/her a free Neuros OSD device (that info won't be used for other purposes). If you wish to comment but not to participate in the competition, please clearly state so on your comments. Update: The winner is FunkyELF for this post. Congrats!

I'd add gigabit wireless ethernet support, support for recording from a webcam device, and potentially the ability to record from more than one device at a time. Maybe having a main box on one television and then little wireless nodes that can go around the house and can all communicate and transmit video/sound to and from the main box, so no matter what entertainment device you're dealing with you always have the ability to record and play whatever you want. And definately add basic internal storage space - 2gb of internal flash storage would work fine, but just so you always have something you can record to that you can just swap over to something else later.

You could even use the internal storage to 'enqueue' a video for whatever it's ultimate destination if the required media is unavailable - so, say you were recording for PSP but didn't have your MemoryStick Pro Duo available just that second (or you're recording while you're away and you took your PSP with you, along with your stick). Then it could record happily away on it's internal space and have it all ready for you when you do subsequently pop in the stick.
