I just don't want you to think noone cares. It would help if you tell us your country, and what kind of imputs & outputs the recorder has.
I am from the USA and all my recorders have coxal in & out, Video Audio in (front & rear) and component video out put in rear. I have 2 places I can hook up my VCR to copy VHS tapes. On one of my recorders I have a DVD player and a VCR hooked up to it.
