I have vhs tapes that I need to copy to dvd and know nothing about where to start…I have an LG machine that I can record onto the hard drive etc…but would appreciate any extra information about all the requirements and what needs to be done to copy my personal vhs tapes to dvd, please.
You did not say what type of LG you have, but assuming from your post, it is a recorder.
In that case look what connections you can use (inputs).
If you have VHS player, it will most likely have Composite Out (yellow connector) and S-Video (round plug with holes) and Audio Out.
First two connectors are for video.
If you have a matching type on your recorder, than just connect those plus Audio and you can go.
For commercial VHS tapes you will need “Video Stabilizer” unit about $30.
This unit will hook up in your Video pass.
VHS video out - Stabilizer - Recorder video In.
