    If there is a question there, the answer is yes. The easiest way is to
    buy a standalone DVD recorder.

    I was forced to go shopping the other day and saw a stand alone VHS DVD
    recorder. It was in one of those stores for idiots and imagine it was
    all push and play. Of course when I'm forced to go shopping there is no
    stopping when something interests me!

    That device will record to either VHS or DVD but I question whether or
    not it will copy FROM VHS to DVD (or vice versa). Can you state the
    brand and/or model?

    Since there are a variety of these devices, I imagine some do and some
    don't. What I have is a standalone DVD recorder, so the video has to
    come from a seperate VCR, or record back to said VCR. Phillips SVSR72.
    Input is from RCA/S-video/firewire/F-connector, output has all but the

    It was a Apex? I think the little stat sheet said it would record from
    vhs to dvd. It was like US$125 or something. Sorry I'm so vague about
    this. Like I said there is no stopping for me!

    So is this a push and play dvd recorder? If not I'd look around for a
    stand alone unit so you can do it real time.

    Not quite sure what your question means. With the Phillips DVD
    recorder, you can push a buttton to record and you can push a button to
    play, or you can program it to record at a later time. In other words,
    it is set up pretty much the same as a VTR. Real time is the only way
    you can record a video stream. If you are on a computer, you may be
    able to transfer files at different speeds.

    Most of them will record from the DVD to VHS and vice versa, but only if
    there's no copy protection. So, they're good for your homemade movies,
    but don't expect to make DVDs from Lord of the Rings tapes.

    Besides, that would be illegal and no one would want to do that anyway.
