Good news. The picture (Evangeline Lilly, mmmmmm, btw) reminds me that since Lost was stolen by <spit>Sky</spit>, I've had to get a colleague at work to put them on to DVD for me (which unfortunately means being nice to him despite any cacky code). But this means I might be able to download them instead, and whilst I wont be able to play them under RISC OS, it should be possible to port some software to transcode them so they can be burnt on to DVD-RW, finally getting some real use out of the Iyonix's DVD writer. I expect transcoding would be very substantially less than realtime, but the Iyonix is quiet enough to leave running overnight, and it will be quicker than waiting 2 episodes for each DVD to be filled.
