Normally I would spend quite a bit of time on Google researching the different brands and models but my head is currently fit to burst with high end PC specifications and hardware and if I have to start reading more reviews and guides for another product, I think my brain will shut-down! If you have experience with the below device and have knowledge of what will help me please do share! but if you have no knowledge of a device that will work please do not feel obligated to search for one yourself!
I'm looking for a device that will receive HDMI and composite into the box, Record it onto a HD, Allow a not too technically minded user to transfer said footage from device using Windows, But also allow play-back of footage recorded on the device to the TV.
So just to be clear
--- TV composite OUT goes to HDD composite IN goes to video file on HD.
--- TV HDMI OUT goes to HDD HDMI IN goes to video file on HD
Above files can be transferred from the unit to a PC via USB.
--- HDD composite OUT goes to TV composite in
--- HDD HDMI out goes to TV HDMI in.
Max budget is £200 and bearing in mind, I am specifically not asking for a "professional product" this needs to be usable by anyone who can record a VHS tape.
Thanks in advance!
