A step by step guide on how to convert VHS tapes into DVDs. This part covers the hardware setup.

"Let's face it: VHS is dead. The problem is that a lot of people still have a huge VHS collection, including all sort of personal mementos like birthday parties, weddings, Christmas, Bar Mitzvahs, trips - you name it. With a PC with a DVD burner, a video capture card (or a video card with VIVO function) and a VCR you can convert all your VHS tapes in DVDs. You may even start working with this and make some money - there is a huge market for this kind of conversion out there for people that don't want to go thru the hassle of converting the tapes themselves. In this tutorial we will show you how to convert your VHS tapes into DVDs. In this part we will cover the hardware part, i.e. the physical installation of your VCR to your PC, including how to install a video capture board to your PC."
