Hi, I'm hoping some of the more experienced members of the forum can help me. I am looking to buy my first DVD recorder. Its main purpose in life is to archive some very precious family video tapes I have. Some of these tapes are now 20 years old so the sooner I get them on to DVD the better. I do very little taping from the TV so I am not fussed about timer recordings and that sort of thing. I have around £250 to spend. What machine will give me the best possible recordings from my tapes and also be easy to use. Thanks very much to any one who replies.
