Cholla, at a price of $80.00 for the Grex, I'd rather buy the discs for the few commercial tapes that I would want to own. For the rest (e.g, The Boys From Brazil, about the soccer team from Brazil, with Pele, that won, for instance, the 1958 World Cup in Sweden â€“ my old country â€“ I may have to do something special, such as paying someone here locally to do the transfer).
I'v already ordered EasyCap and downloaded the Golden Video software (free), a combination someone said he had used with success, and I will report back.
As I said in my first message, I used and gave up on a combo unit (Sony RDR-VX525; it was useless). A friend gave it to me, because he could not use it and he bought another unit (can't remember which, but I can find out if you want to know).
Well, Cholla, I can see that you are well equipped. Good for you! I have a limited number (about 50) tapes that are of interest to me, and I can probably get away with only copying about 25.
