I am looking to get my dad a VHS/DVD and maybe HDD combo for Xmas. The thing is I am looking for a machine that can copy directly from VHS to DVD so he can backup a load of old home movies.

I have searched the internet, and whilst it is easy enough to find a box with a VHS and DVD drive I haven't yet found one which allows VHS TO DVD recording (apart from some overpriced crappy looking thing in Maplins).

Does anyone have any suggestions?

better off just getting a decent DVD recorder or HDD/DVD recorder that allows scart input. Then connect the vhs player to this scart.

no, it is because there is no market these days for dvd/vhs recorders as most people buy hdd recorders. 100% better than any dvd/vhs recorder.

I was referring to the lack of vhs/dvd combi units on the market being low. NOT the quality of the trasnfer recordings. HDD recorders are just so much more convenient for storage, timers etc.

Actually I was looking at DVD recorders without the VHS as dont need that. Have a VHS already with a scart connections so dont need another. I was looking at options for recording. Across a range of stores and common factor seems to be number of items out of stock under the £180 price range.

Fair enough but make sure you get a dvd/hdd recorder. DVD recorders are just hard work (only 1-2 hours on 1 disk at high quality as opposed to 100+ on an HDD)

In the end I went for this one:

a Toshiba RDXV48 - 160Gb Hard Drive DVD Recorder & VHS Combi With Freeview which seemed a bargain at £183 and the reviews i have found on the net all seem favorable. I just hope it turns up in time for Xmas!
