I believe the Mitsubishi will only accept 1080i digital connections from camcorders and specific digital tuners (Mitsubishi and maybe some others) via firewire. Depending on the vintage of the JVC you may be able to use firewire, YBR and/or component inputs from an appropriate digital tuner or camcorder. From what I understand, Pay For Channels such as HBO, etc. may not work. There have been some computer based interfaces avialable, but, they are a bit esoteric and are reputed to be a bit "buggy". The last time I checked, which was sometime ago, there was only a couple of DVR's that permitted this output, was not available from Direct TV, is no longer in production and are actively sought out by others for the same reasons you've outlined. Many end up downgrading to analogue to archive. I could be wrong, but, some of the firewire connections may be limited to video.
