I'm thinking of getting a DMR-EH50 at a reduced price from AV-Sales with a new Panny 42" Plasma. My main requirement of the recorder would be to convert the shelves of VHS tapes that I have. I would want to copy a 3hr VHS tape to the hard drive, pick the bits out that I still want (i.e. music clips) and then burn them to DVD-R. Is this the machine for me? Thanks.
