    What's the recommended method now for copying from VCR to DVDs? I was thinking of buying a VCR and DVD combo unit, but I thought I would check in here to see if there is another way I don't know of. Technology is moving so quickly any number of possibilities exist.

    If they are home recorded movies, a VCR/DVD unit is an easy "one button" solution and will perform quite well.

    With all of that being said, copying VHS tapes to DVD does NOT make the video "DVD quality". In fact, in most instances, you lose a bit of quality. You are simply changing the storage format.

    Also, you cannot copy commercial VHS tapes. In other words, all of your store bought VHS tapes.
