 I thought so, too, until I discovered a really annoying quirk in my
new HDV camera: It cuts the sound during tape eject and tape insertion.
The timecode is reset when I switch tape, too.  So my long continuous
harddisk recording has two 5-second periods of silence, and non-contiguous
timecode.  Ick!

material if and when someone does want to do something with it.

 Harddrives will be roughly the same weight and size, and only 2-3 times
more expensive than DV tape.  DV tapes may go out of fashion before IDE
