Thread: Transferring VHS to DVD

    Default Transferring VHS to DVD

    I have been asked to transfer VHS to DVD. The VHS player I have has only a scart. How do I get the VHS to connect to my computers TV card?

    Is there a converter?

    Why not cut out the middle man (so to speak) and just connect the VCR to a DVD recorder?

    You can buy a scart to composite/Svideo plug which includes audio out aswell, using the correct lead this can then be plugged in to the TV/capture card ready for capture.

    Or - if you have a minidv camera - copy to minidv first via your camera, then capture via firewire to the computer. Avoids issues w/synch for many capture cards since if you don't have a pro card - things can get f'd up bad.

    this will only work with hi-end cams with a/v in

    Default Convert VHS to DVD

    visit VHS to DVD and transfer your home video tapes to dvd. You can get a pretty good conversion at a reasonable price from a lot of places. But what are most of these companies lacking? Care and attention to detail! Other ways you get totally amateurish product done with domestic equipment.

    Yeah I agree, I tried to transfer some VHS myself using a product that I won't name, but cost me 50, and the results were terrible, and it took me ages. I ended up sending the videos to MMC (multimedia-copy.com) in Manchester (i'm in the UK) , who did a stellar job, and even edited out the long sections where i'd been an idiot and left the camera recording the inside of the lense cap!
