Did a search for this, but found nothing specific. I have a number of VHS tapes that I want to archive to DVD. I was going to use my PC, but was surprised at the cost of getting good results. So If I hook up a decent recorder to my video, what sort of results will that give me? Are they perfect copies of my originals tapes? Any further purchaces other than the recorder? Will probably get the panny e50, by the way.
