I have a somewhat stupid question.
If I were to purchase a VHS/DVD player that can record (or I guess copy is a better word?) my old VHS tapes to DVD, such as the Philips DVDR3435 Combo DVD Recorder and VCR, will the unit copy the VHS directly to the DVD, or does it record from the monitor to the disc. I ask because my TV has a screwed up picture tube, and I'm afraid if I record a VHS to DVD, that the finished product will look bad because my TV is in bad shape. I'm hoping that it will record the VHS exactly how the tape was originally recorded and not based on how my current TV shows a picture.
Thanks in advance!
