Well I think the title says it all. How do I go about converting those old family movies to a DVD? I eventually plan on ripping those DVDs to create Mp4s so I'll end up having two copies. The order I do this doesn't really matter. It'll end up being somewhere in the ball park of 100 VHS tapes. I'll only really need about 10 of those in Mp4's. Budget: Cheap, if I can manage it. I'd prefer not to spend over $100 on this project. I know it'll end up costing me 10's of hours of actual work, if not more. Not thrilled with that, but such is life. Hardware: MacBook Pro (Dual Layer DVD burner. I'm only going to use a single layer/dvd.) Old Family VHS. Has composite cable. If there is a legit reason to buy a tv tuner in the guise of this project, I'd be happy. The EyeTv 250 plus is out of my range, considering it costs $180. Anything similar to that? I'm not against going to BootCamp route and buying a $50 cable to connect an old VCR to my MBP either. Also, is this better to post in the Digital Video forum?
