It's great. Once you get it working...
on 8 September 2013
MAGIX Rescue Your Videotapes package will effectively transfer your VHS tapes to video. It's easy to use and the editing software is straightforward. But it took me a while to get it working.
It's easy to install. Stick CD in tray, follow instructions. Then you connect the relevant wires to your video recorder and marvel in wonder at images of your acne ridden face on a home video from 20 years ago. Suddenly you begin to question whether this was a good idea.
No matter - This is amazing! It's like having access to a time machine. But why is the image flickering? A friend who works in IT pops round to sort it out. Following an hour of fiddling about, the IT bloke phones MAGIX support-line in America. Can't get through. The automated phone service is a nightmare. As a last resort, I suggest removing the poxy extension cable from the USB connection that came with the package.
Bob's your uncle - Flickering is gone. I am overjoyed that I can now re-live all the most embarrassing moments from my teenage years in glorious digital quality and blackmail my friends with incriminating material that is arguably unfit for human consumption.
