The best software for Linux recording is :
And last I checked, JVC was the only brand NOT supported. You might
check the above site and try to get a look at the latest version.

Sounds sus to me, can't you get the digital recorded to download back
to your Linux box, then burn the CD from there. I would say that a digital
recorded without download capabilities is next to useless. What excuse is
there in this day and age to produce a high end device without an ethernet
port and TCP/IP stack?

Maybe there is some reason why JVC devices are difficult to support?
Maybe it is just historical cooincidence? Personally I would suggest
Yamaha, but that's just because every time I use mine, it works.
