    Hi all,

    I have a requirement very soon to copy some home made VHS recordings to DVD.

    I think I'm correct in assuming the HDD-DVDR I have has a TBC built-in, but wondered what connections it works through ?

    Scart? S-Vhs ?

    My Vcr only has a scart out, so that's a no-brainer, but would like to know whether I need a scart at the HDD-DVDR end, or one of those converters to phono & S-vhs.

    On a connected note, any pointers to easy to grasp PC based editing software would also be really appreciated. :smashin:

    Thanks in advance for all and any assistance.

    Best regards,

    Kev

    Hi Kev.

    The connection is not critical. You can connect to AV2 AV3 or AV4.

    So a simple scart link is probably best.
    There is no point in having a scart to S video converting lead because you unit will not output S video unless it is a S-Video machine - which I gather it is not - so it would not work at all.

    I've no recommendations for software.
    You may actually find it better to edit on the machine HDD before you burn discs from the transferred material.

    Hi Gavtech,

    It's been a while, hope you're ok :hiya:

    Thanks for the clarification, scart it will be, although I do hate having to remove the cable from the back each time.

    So because the Vcr is not an s-vhs model (you're correct), then whatever method of connection, I'm only sending a composite signal ?

    If so, then a scart to phono converter into AV3 (front) would be the same quality of signal, and save me messing around at the back ?

    But the Panny should TBC the signal so the audio/video stay's sync'ed? :rolleyes:

    Thanks again :smashin:

    Kev

    Hi Kev.

    Sorry I missed this.

    Yes use the front connection by all means. Quality will be the same.
