I'm a new member and most impressed by the wealth of information freely available. However, that's the problem! There is so much conflicting information that I'm now completely confused. What I want to do is as follows: I have a large collection of VHS tapes, mostly films lasting about two hours. I've gradually replaced some of them with commercial DVD's but there are a large number which are not available on DVD. In short all I need to do is to copy these films to DVD so that they will be playable on a standard DVD player. I will only want to do limited editing (i.e removing adverts). Do I go for a stand alone DVD recorder (if so which one?) or use my PC (I don't have a DVD burner)? Any advice will be gratefully received.
