Some very clever suggestions in the threads on this subject.Many diff ways and combinations on doing it. For now will look out for DVD recorder, then t/x from video recorder to DVD recorder. My video also only has 2 scarts and red & white audio on the back. Will take me time to get things in place. When I do will give it my best and report back on my progress. Thanks for your Help and suggestions

Yes, just enter "vhs to dvd" in the search box on the left of your screen. (without the quote marks). Lots of previous threads/help with this subject. Do not use the search box at the top of the screen, it doesn't work.

As €dstowe says. Don't rush in where fools fear to tread. Have a read of them all first before deciding.

Personally, I use a standalone DVD recorder which copies VHS and Beta tapes in real time. ie. a 3 hour tape takes 3 hours to burn to DVD. Plus of course, I can also record direct to DVD from TV.

If you use your computer with a capture card/device it will take about 7 hours to burn a 3 hour tape.

Think about it first.
