My parents have a ridiculous amount of old VHS tapes that we recorded in Saudi Arabia and England that we haven't been able to watch since then because of the different formats. I've figured out that I need to buy a VCR that is compatible with that format (and if anyone has any tips of where I should go to find that format, I'd appreciate it). But my main question was can I use any of the popular analog to DV converters that are out there for this? Specifically, do the Canopus ADVC110 Converter or the Elgato EyeTV work with all formats? And finally, I know the Elgato product can be used as a TV tuner, so I'm inclined to go with that if it works with my old tapes, but is the quality of the Canopus much better? Thanks.
