I know this has been discussed before, but since technology changes so fast . . .
I have three bags of VHS tapes I'd like to copy to DVD. Some of them are movies, but a lot of them are old skating tapes I recorded.
Some of them (gag) are old tapes of me competing, and are therefore very short . . . only about 10 minutes of content on a VHS tape. So ideally I'm hoping to find a device that will allow me to gang up a ton of my performances on one DVD so I don't have 20 different DVDs for 20 different performances when I could just run the performances all chronologically on one DVD.
If that's not possible (because I imagine that would involve more video editing capabilities) then I'm fine with just burning old one VHS tape to one DVD, just so I can get rid of the old VHS tapes. Then perhaps later I can take the DVDs onto my Mac and edit them the way I'm thinking.
Anyone have recommendations on a good machine to purchase to do this? It seems to me it would be cheaper to buy a $100 machine to do this rather than send the tapes out to a service, which from what I've researched so far will cost me a whole lot more. Can I plug this machine into my Mac laptop to use as a monitor so I don't have to mess with the configuration of my TV?
