    I am intrested in converting my VHS collection over to DVD. However I am overwhelmed by all the hardware and software I might need. I was hoping someone could break it down for me cost wise and effectiveness.

    I am on a P4 2.4 256ddr. What would you suggest?

    Thanks in advanced, please don't hold back any information :p I need it.

    Now i'm sure most people here will say this is easy to do, but I tried this and found that the results were terrible. i used a Hauppage PVR card and the final footage ended up several mins out of sync, I gave up and bought a cheap stand alone dvd recorder and it did the job with ease....

    Just what I wanted to hear...errr. Damn it!

    Yeah, it's my gramp's collection and he is willing to buy whatever he needs to get the job done, he was going to just get a stand alone but I chimed in and offered my services. You can see why I would want to do it.. free dvd burner... I'm hoping I get some good responses here. If not, I guess I will just have to advise him to go with the stand alone.

    Do you have a very powerfull system?

    Great site there, wish I had found that when I done mine.
    It took me ages to work out but I've got all my taped stuff on dvd now.
