I know this is an ancient, obsolete matter but I am looking some suggestions, and no better place than this forum. I have been holding 2 or 3 commercial, black-and-white videotapes from the past, waiting to be released on DVD. I got the feeling that the producers have no intention to do so, such as Republic Pictures. What I used to do in the past was transfer the recording in real time from the VHS player (Panasonic) to a DVD recorder (Panasonic also). The result was normally less that satisfactory. But it some cases, the commercial videotape comes the owner's protection that I cannot break. Another alternative would be a software with signal converter (from RCA yellow, white and red to USB) to transfer the signal from the VHS player to my PC, with the benefits of AnyDVD and the software to capture, edit and save the files. I saw a survey in Internet giving preference to Diamond VC500 USB 2.0 One Touch VHS to DVD Capture: https://www.amazon.com/Diamond-VC50...pID=41KVvb2b3LL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch Is this the best way to do VHS to digital conversion? Has anyone used this specific software?
