I was toying with the idea as well, as I have a stack of VHS tapes, just
waiting to be archived.
Obviously there are 2 roads to go down:- The PC capture/edit/render etc.
etc. then burn to DVD.
The second is to buy a stand-alone DVD recorder (preferably one with
hard drive built in).
At the moment I am leaning towards the latter option.
An advantage of the recorder version is that you can use it as a regular
player as well as a recorder (obviously), and consign the VHS recorder
to the bin.
One recorder that springs to mind is the Pioneer DVR 433H (around £250
if you shop around). An advantage of this recorder is that it will burn
Dual Layer DVD's, should the cost of blanks decrease.
So, at the moment I am saving up my pennies for the Pioneer, and it will
probably become a winter project. It could be a bit cheaper in a couple
of months time. <G>
Has anyone had VHS tapes converted to DVD?
I've got a couple I'd like preserving but that's not enough to justify
buying a 300 quid recorder. I will probably hunt around to see who offers
these services but I'd like to know if anyone has an idea of the more
