I hope to purchase DVD recorder in the not to distant future (Probably the Philips +RW format but the Panasonic DVD-RAM-R format is still being considered). I want to archive my standard VHS recordings to DVD with the aid of a video copying device to improve colour balance and other variables. The device I have in mind for this is the copymate CM-2 from a UK supplier. Does anyone have any experience with this device or similar device that will confirm to me that the use of a video enhancer between a standard or VHS machine and a philips DVD1000+rw machine that they will work ok together. I have asked the supplier who thinks it should be ok but has not actually tested such a set up.
