I'd like to convert some of my VHS cassette tapes (retro gaming and Yngwie Malmsteen related) to a digital format (.mkv etc) but from reading a few guides, it seems a bit complicated. But let's start at the beginning I guess. To reduce potential future issues and maximise audio and video quality (e.g. S-Video port compatibility is a must), I don't mind paying some money for a good JVC or Panasonic VHS player/recorder but which model? JVC and Panasonic seem to be the most recommended brands for this type of thing. Alternatively, are there any places in the Melb CBD that offer this service and do a decent professional job of it? If so, how much?
