Yes - my mistake - realise now the HR- DVS3 wasn't a DVDs recorder/combo.
Looking forward to receiving eBay
-won JVC products this week - HR-S8700 vcr and the DRM100. I've been doing simple tests transferring footage from my 2 current VCRs to my current DRM150 (recording XP direct to DVD-R).
The DRM150 hasn't noticably reduced the chroma 'smears' inherent in an old motor racing VHS tape (brightly coloured cars, pitlane markings etc). I'll see how the DRM100S gets on to do further comparisons. (I'm playing the 'test' DVD-Rs in a blu ray player to a large plasma, to get the most detailed image to compare.)

The camcorder's a Sony DCRPC110. I have a purely Mac set-up (realise it may not be ideal) but I just want to do very simple transfers to DVD.
I have a very old (unused) Canopus AVC100 or is it possible to digitise my S-VHS-c tapes by connecting the VCR to the camcorder via s-video and RCA and use it as a pass-through to the Mac?
As you can tell I'm slowly finding my way through the analog-digital jungle, now I've realised the analog footage I've accumulated over the years hasn't deteriorated as much as I thought. Appreciate any advice!
