Yes, The HBO movie "*61" was done with all audio directly from DEVA 
field recordings played back on a Tascam MMR-8

We did not playback DEVA recordings on the DV40 so no direct experience there.

"Will and Grace" records directly on DV40 on set and syncs in 
telecine with another DV40 under TLC control. The machine seems solid 
and well thought out.

My experience with DEVA playback in the TASCAM MMR8 was that the DEVA 
format had some quirks and undocumented items that complicated the 
effort. TASCAM indicated that they had to spend a lot of time to get 
basic functionality from the media and I found some bugs that hadn't 
been worked out as of the latest software.
