Toughest part of this project is figuring out the appropriate forum to post to.
I have a Sony VRD-MC3, a standalone DVD recorder with S-Video In and AV In, and will burn DVD-R DL at 8X. I have a collection of aging VHS protected movies which are deteriorating as I write this.
My VCR only has AV OUT. Am I making a mistake to proceed without trying to find a VCR with S-Video OUT? Would the difference be significant?
Are there both software and hardware solutions to deal with VHS protection? I am under the impression I can legally to what I got to do to rescue these movies that are on a magnetic media and put them on optical media.
The setup I described doesn’t use my PC. Will I have to use the Sony recorder as an external device on my computer to use a software or hardware solution to the VHS protection problem?
Thanks for any comments I receive.
