I'm thinking of buying a dvd recorder but am wondering if they only record standard tv channels. My TV has a video tape slot built into it - would I be able to record from VHS onto DVD? Or would the video channel not be available to the dvd recorder?
I have a DVD Player/Recorder with built-in TV tuner, a normal VHS VCR and a Freeview Digibox all inter-connected. With this setup I can record direct to DVD, anything which I can view on the TV, including input from my digital camcorder.
Connection is very straight-forward, every item shown has two Scart sockets, simply daisy-chain the Scarts, with roof-top TV aerial connected to Digi-box and daisy-chained down through the other items to TV. I also have a normal co-axe splitter at the TV aerial socket with a length of co-axe aerial cable going to my 22" Wide-screen Digital LCD TV/Computer Monitor, which is also connected to a Video Processor/Audio Mixer (bought for £2 at a boot-sale), which is also connected to another ordinary VHS VCR underneath my PC desk, all of which are connected to my PC. Not to mention my webcam/scanner/printer/router/telephone etc.
