Very cool, I will be sure to try that right away.

I have to think that there will be...  If nothing else, than because 
NVRec is designed for recording from a TV-card, and does a good job of 
things like buffering data (for 1sec by default) before writing to disk. 
  With nuppelrec, I can record 640x480 video and (I assume it uses) PCM 

With mencoder, using MJPEG for video is just about as 
processor-intensive as mpeg4 (maxes out my XP 2000+)...  I assume that 
is due to lack of (or poor) buffering (although any other explanations 
are welcome!).  If I use any lavc video codec (mpeg1, mjpeg, mpeg4, 
rv10, h263), and PCM audio with mencoder (even mono--even at a sampling 
rate of 24000) after a minute I get constant messages about dropped 
audio frames...  That's on a 7200RPM HD, btw.
