Hi I received some very good advice yesterday and am now seriously thinking of buying a Pioneer DVR-420H. Before taking the plunge I wonder if anyone can advise me as to the likely success of recording off VHS tapes through my Panasonic NV-HS830B VCR via SCART cable to the Pioneer. I would prefer to record onto the hardrive so as to edit before recording again onto a DVD-R disk. If this is not possible then straight from VHS to DVd-R. Can anyone tell me if this will work and the likely quality? That is, will it be as good as the VHS or will it degrade? Thanks again - this is a super forum.
