Panasonic AG-HVX200 Recorder with AGPTEK VG0020 P2 card alternative

I found a better way to record video from a Panasonic AG-HVX200 video camera.  For the price of one Panasonic P2 memory card you can buy an interface that records in 720P to a memory stick or to an external hard drive.  It is the AGPTEK VG0020.  The adapter also has a HDMI output that you can connect to a bigger monitor.

I first tried the VG0020 at 1080i video from the camera.  It would not work with one monitor and with another monitor it had a noise bar wandering through the picture.  When I switched the camera to 720p the picture cleared up and it works with all the monitors that I have tried.

Here is a picture of the AGPTEK VG0200 setup.
The Video comes out of the component output via an adapter cable.  Audio is from the RCA audio in/out jacks.

Here is the video.  The audio level is a little low..
