    Default VHS to DVD using stand alone machines:?:

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this question or even if there is a solution to my problem but here's hoping.

    I recently upgraded to a DVD+R machine to replace my worn out VHS. Having convinced my wife that I would be able to copy her favourite tape to DVD I then find out, after spending hours scratching my head, about copy protection. If a DVD copy was available I would buy it, but it's not and this is for personal use so what do I do?

    I have seen "signal boosters" that claim to inadvertently remove macrovision (?), I'm sceptical.

    Now obviously I have a pc and it's not bad. Whilst it has a dvd player it doesn't have a burner, nor a video capture card. I don't want to go over the top, after all it's only one tape.

    Any help or advice would be gratefully received. Thanks!

    Yep, macrovision removers exist and work. Think they're about 50 for a piece of hardware and just sit bewteen the source and distination.
