I'm trying to compare the quality of recording a VHS tape versus a hard drive set at highest quality. From what I understand a VHS tape can record 240 lines out of the 333 (am I right about this?)broadcast. A hard drive Recorder should be able to record all 333 lines and then burn those to a DVD which will then be able to display 333 lines (even though it is capable of displaying 480 lines using different source material). Since the only thing I'm interested in doing is archiving some regular NTSC programs onto DVDs would I be just as well off recording them on a super VHS tape(I can buy a super vhs recorder for next to nothing) and then transferring that material to my computer through my digital camcorder and burning a DVD there? Thanks in advance for your help.
