What the thread title says. I have too many VHS, video8 and miniDV recordings that need to be transferred to DVD to save on storage space, and I have zero experience in doing so. Well, almost. A friend suggested I try one of those small USB and S-video/RCA jacked widgets (Chronos brand), but the resulting DVD resolution was really coarse, with no apparent option to increase it. Any suggestions on how to go about doing this would be appreciated, preferrably without having to buy one of those $$$$$ Sony DVDirect machines, lol. Thanks, h.
