Hi Folks, I'm about to embark on a sizable VHS to Digital task moving about 20 or so VHS tapes onto DVD; The tapes are about 15 to 18 years old and have probably degraded significantly over the years; I don't know *how much* because, well, read on... Here are the issues that have presented themselves to me so far. First, I've been looking and comparing the Canopus ADVC110 to the DAC-200 and I have the feeling they are essentially the same caliber solution, as well as both being around $200. However, I have a lead on a used ADVC300 for $300. I understand it has better results in stabilizing image and syncing audio, especially to more degraded VHS. Is it worth the extra $100 to go for the ADVC300? How much better is it than the ADVC110? Second, it's been years since I've owned a VCR, and amazingly all of my friends and family have tossed their's out long ago. So in addition to getting the analog/DV transfer device, I need to get a VCR to play the original VHS tapes. Is there one that can be purchased reasonably that will give good results? It's interesting shopping for a device so antiquated that most electronics stores have 1 or 2 models at best, if at all... I appreciate any advice on the subject as well as suggestions; I do have a Mini DV cam but (shocking, again) it doesn't have any AV inputs. I figured the outlay for a Analog/DV transfer box would be worth it for this project, even if I don't have long term plans for it. Thanks in advance!
