    Hi. My old VHS is slowly giving up the ghost and so we have decided to move with the times and get one of those DVD/HDD recorder things. The problem is that we have a stack of store bought videos that my kids still want to watch. I'm not looking to start a pirate movie business but I think it fair for me to copy those movies over to DVD for personal use. Does anyone have any suggestions or links that can help? Cheers in advance. :doh:

    sure :)

    www.amazon. de/co.uk/com (where are u come from ? ) and buy a videograbber (usb)card.

    connect your vhs and you can record with the software is shipped with the card (in some cases) or a software like nero vision

    the easy way to go forit
    check if they are released on dvd and buy it on dvd
    it might be cheaper
    now a days dvd are 1.00-3.00 retail price

    I transferred my old tapes by connecting my VHS to my HDD recorder using a SCART cable. I guess there are many different ways to do it.

    I can recommend a company with a solution. Here is the site I have found: http://xdimax.com/grex/grex.html
    They have a device called Grex video stabilizer. I heard that with Grex help it will be
    possible to remove protection from DVD and TV channels and thus be able to download protected video to DVD.:agree::agree::agree:

    I used a Pinnacle DVC 100 device and copied quite a number of protected Disney VHS films without any trouble

    Hi.
    Thanks a lot for your suggestion about Grex.
    I ordered a Grex unit from XDIMAX a while back. I've now had it for
    almost a week or two. It has seen a fair amount of use so far, and I
    am ecstatic with the results!
    I've recorded via the composite and S-Video connections. The video
    sources come either from my cable TV (Comcast) or from Netflix streams
    via my WiFi enabled Blu-Ray players.
    The unit has performed flawlessly and although I haven't tried hard to
    do so, upon casual viewing I have not been able to notice any sort of
    degradation of the signal (which I was, admittedly a bit afraid of).
    Thanks so much
