It is, but I just cannot find a place that is US based either. I know of another DVR, but not sure if records in HD or not.

Did I read the specs on the DVR correctly? "Operating Temperature - 0F-45F" Wondering if they meant 45C instead.

Not sure how I'd set these up, but there are finally some 1080p capable cameras out.
I like where your going I'm also always looking for a better camera solution as well. I came across this thread at mp3car it's a few pages. I like what he has it's a little rough but maybe with better cameras it could do the trick.

That's what it looks like. Hopefully it is not F as that would not work for WI. It also says it doesn't record in HD... Why must this be so difficult?! :(

With computer cameras, I've noticed they use a lot of processing power.

Damn, that's pricy. I'd probably go with a carpc and some high res USB web cams, personally.

I like the cameras you just found. I was thinking use the IP cameras with a PC and the OBDII / GPS overlays from the thread I posted.

I haven't played with any IP cameras yet so I can't speak to there PC requirements but I agree with you on the processing power from webcams.
The video's that guy has posted are not smooth enough for me using webcams.

I would like to have a car PC/DVR with a removable hard drive with the captured video that could be swapped out. The only problem I see is having enough power for running any type of long term parking mode.

A pair of yellow top batteries should work. Of course, it would be recommended to have a high output alternator to recharge the batteries.
