Backup Question DVDR


Active Member

Can anyone tell me what DVD Recorder I would need to purchase that will allow me to do the following:

Record a VHS tape from a PAL VCR so that I can backup my old bits and bobs.

Also, would this simply be a case of connecting the RGB Scart out from the VCR to the SCART in on a DVD R?




I doubt your VCR has RGB out, if it hasn't you may prefer to allocate the Scart input socket to an RGB source such as a Sky Digibox.

All the DVD recorders will allow you to copy from a Video Tape, assuming it is not a commercially produced one, which would probably be copy protected.

The quality of the picture would be fine using a composite input.
