Hi After reading all the magazines I have now come across this website which appears to have some knowledgeable people. I am 51 yrs old with a wonderful family and have built up years of family VHS tapes and dv tapes. To put it simply I'm baffled! I want to transfer these family tapes to DVD and link my digital camera to a dvd recorder. We have Sky, though apparantly it only receives music and kids programmes, and my wife would like to record from the TV so I suppose a HDD would be best. I suppose an excellent editing facility would be a must as my old tapes contain a lot of rubbish! I was thinking about a Sony RDR-HX900 but this seems to be getting mixed reviews and as it is a lot of money I don't want to get something I don't really need. I thought about a combi VHS/DVD but not sure how good they are. Please let me have your suggestions. Quite happy for anyone to email me direct. Thanks in anticipation.
