Reading the paper this morning I saw an ad for a VHS/DVD/DVD Recorder @60. This set me thinking about converting all my VHS recordings into DVD or Digitalised. I did a google search to see if the appliance mentioned was capable of converting VHS to DVD or did it just record digitally from the TV. Didn't really understand all the +R's and -R's tagged onto the descriptions and as most of the Googled hits were to company's offering to do it for you for 15 for converting 3hrs of Video to digital I thought maybe it is not so simple, and decided to come here and ask you clever people for a bit of advise instead.

Any way my question is what is the easiest, simplest and cheapest way to convert my ancient VHS collection to DVD?. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hi bluesjunior.
There are multiple ways to do it. Probably the cheapest and easiest way is to use something like this. Everything you need is in the box.
I use to have the same thing (slightly older model though). I still have it but no longer use it in favor of a capture card and pinnacle studio instead. Keep in mind that whatever you use, you still get vhs quality on dvd disk. Because you are recording in realtime, it's also a long process. Set it and go do something else for a couple hours. :thumbsup:
