I'm thinking of buying a solution to my search for a way to copy certain of my VHS tapes onto DVD discs. I don't need to use my computer for this task. In fact, I'd rather use a stand-alone machine to do it away from the computer, since the ripping/recording will take time, and computers are not yet really multitasking tools. Ideally I'd like a machine with the DVD recorder/player and the VHS in one box. But I'd also go for a DVD player/recorder with hard drive in one box, and a separate VHS player/recorder in a second unit with cables in between. Anyone have any suggestions for me?
