What you need:
- a VHS player (I suppose) you already have that
- a DVD-recorder that can connect to your player using connections like SCART, composite or analog antenna

If you want to use your PC, you need to install a TV card that can connect to your VHS layer. It should come with software.
I am looking to convert and edit old vhs tapes to dvd. What is a good inexpensive software and capture device. I am using windows xp and windows 7
