VHS to DVD recording.

My mother has some vhs tapes that have a lot of sentimental value, and wants to transfer them to dvd so they last longer.
How can we go about doing this? I have looked at some DVD/VHS combi's but they dont say if they record vhs to dvd or not. Can anyone point me to a system that DOES do this?
Please and thanks.

We did it but had 2 separate machines, a video recorder and a dvd recorder and it worked a treat.

the only vcr we have is a tv combi machine with no output, so would prefer to get one machine.

will this do the job? Panasonic DMREZ48VB

Yup.

But you can get cheaper VCR to DVD machines if that's all you want it for...

But note that if the videos have copy protection on them, you wont be able to copy them onto dvd. It will be fine for home videos, but you might have issues with pre-recorded commercially released films.

Something like this would do it and it also has built in freeview, so you could record a freeview channel and watch a another (assuming you have built in freeview on the telly) which is definately a plus for future proofing.

I wanted to convert my vcr's to dvd but the cost was silly prices so I bought a Funai machine to do the job from Maplin's for £99.oo and its' simple to use and give very good results ( I think so ) and has saved me over £700.oo to convert all my vcr's myself over time ( word of warning it will not convert some if they are copywrited which applies to all machines

lol the videos arent copyrighted, and if the were, some paper and sellotape can fix that problem. I'm just going to borrow a machine to do the job

That tab is to stop you recording over them, not to bypass copyright protection...

Not exactly...

It's copyright protection (or copy prevention, whichever you fancy), but Macrovision are the company that created the technology used (which is why most people just label it Macrovision).
