I'm a newbie and not very familiar with the underlying technology of TVs, so please bear with me. I've a Bush BTV18SIL TV/VCR combo with one SCART socket. I recently received a Sony RDR-HX525 DVD recorder as a gift. I was able to connect the DVD recorder to my freeview box and my TV and then record programmes directly to the hard disk or a DVD. I can't quite figure out how to record my VHS tapes to DVD, though, because my VCR is part of my TV set. Do I need to buy a separate VCR or can I just buy a device of some kind that can capture the video signal and route it as an input to my DVD recorder? Thanks in advance, Sue.
