I am currently in the process of transferring my old vhs tapes via a vcr player and climiaxdigital vhs to pc which i purchased from amazon. I can see the quality of the video once on the pc is reduced compared to when the vhs is played directly to the tv via a scart lead.

Would it be better to copy the vhs to a dvd via a vhs dvd recorder and then rip the dvd to preserve more of the quality?

Many thanks

The limitation will be the quality of your capture device, not the route.

Going round the houses by converting to DVD and then ripping has no inherent advantage and takes longer, although it could potentially be cheaper than a better capture device.

Thanks. I'm abit confused about the different capture devices. What are my options without making the process too complicated. I'm doing most of this via my laptop so im limited in term of ports etc.
