Recording Video Tapes on to PC used to be a black art, but various bits of kit have sprung up over the last 5 years to help with the task. The latest is the Honestech VHS to DVD 7 and it claims to be very easy to use for great results.
The package features a small white box with USB, Composite (red, yellow, white cables) and S-Video connections. It also comes with a USB lead and Scart cable adaptor, everything you need to get going.
The user manual is one of those fold out pamphlet types with pictures and simple instructions on installing the software and connecting a Video Recorder/Camera to the device and PC. It's easy to understand and follow.
The software is also helpful, allowing new users to go through each step and explaining them all clearly from start to finish. There's an advanced interface, too, which allows you to choose a wider range of options to get your video looking just the way you want. Editing also allows for things like titles and menus and you can burn to DVD and Bluray in HD.
The home videos I've recorded look far better than the old Lidl's bought kit I was using and the software is great in allowing me to just get on with the task of recording. it saves in many different formats, too, so you can always use your own piece of editing software if you wish.
