Advice needed for DVD/VHS recorder

by geekymom / March 4, 2007 1:52 PM PST

Howdy everyone,
I've read the reviews on DVD/VHS recorders but am a bit confused. I need to transfer my old VHS tapes over to DVD and my 8mm Video Cassettes as well. I need a system that I can plug my camcorder into the DVD recorder and transfer my video over to the DVD's. Once on the DVD's I intend on using them on my computer to make home movies.
Making home movies isn't new territory for me, but getting the home videos onto a DVD is. I need a good quality system, and something that will accommodate all my video recording needs. Advice please? Many thanks.

VHS-DVD recorder combos $150~300.

All of them will copy VHS to DVD and using the video inputs record that to the DVD. Some will also have DVR function using DVD-RAM, but they are the $250+ ones.
I have a very nice Panasonic was $289 at Costco.
Just look at the C-net reviews. John

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
