I was just thinking about something, and I was wondering if there will ever be a piece of equipment that you can buy for your home that copies VHS movies to DVD. It would be really cool and might not be that far out of reach. We have CD burners on our computers, and we could use the computer somehow to create the menus for the DVD. I think this product would be VERY popular, and VHS is slowly fading out anyways so it's not like companies are losing lots of money. What are your opinions?

The problem might be the Macrovision copy protection on the old VHS tapes. But for stuff you have on VHS that was recorded off TV that does not have Macrovision, it is a great Idea. I have like 50 VHS tapes that I want on DVD right now, and would put up with the PQ loss to get them on DVD now.

We carry them. If you want to copy home movies, for archiving, what value do you put on memories? One unique aspect of the +RW is that it will play in some players without fianalizing, which makes it great for time shifting. The price of the machines are less than the original HiFi stereo VCRS and the disks are less than the original CDR/CDRW
