vhs tape recorder needs updated lead for vhs to dv

  De Nada 20:11 15 Nov 2009

I have quite a few old vhs tapes that i would like to convert to dvd,trouble is,my vhs recorder has a scart socket but no composite sockets(the red,white,and yellow)is there a lead that i could buy to link the capture device to the video recorder so i can connect it to my pc?

There is also an s-video on the capture device if i can get a cable for that,thanks.

I bought a scart to phono lead it had three imputs and three outputs (two red,white,and yellow) i connected it to my old vhs recorder and plugged the out jacks to my honestech video capture device,the audio was fine,but video was terrible, would a scart to s-video lead be any better as there is a socket on the capture device? any assistance gratefully received.

by the way,i tried my old recorder with my tv and it was fine.

Are the tapes commercial ones?
They could be macrovision protected

No,they are quite old ones of family and hols,i have had a reply from honestech,(its there software im using)and they advise me to get a bi-directional lead so i will have a look tomorrow,,thanks again.
