Better late than never - just back from a quick tour of Scottish
universities with daughter.
I can thoroughly recommend EverMedia for converting old tapes to DVD - have used them twice now and they provide a first-class service. You'll find details at http://www.evermedia.co.uk/
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 reputable firms..
