    yeah Dazzle products are great for vid editing..but why do you want DVD's to VHS? you lose the whole point of DVD quality?

    I wont really be working with video editing. im just interested in transfering dvds on to vhs.

    Its just that i have these exotic dvds in PAL format and sucks i can see em on my player. So im looking for a way to transfer them from my dvd rom to a vhs tape.

    dvd ripping

    well one thing you COULD do, if you didnt mind wasting some time, is rip the dvd and convert them to VCDs, which may or may not fit on one CD. Then if your DVD player supports videoCD CDR playback, you can watch them on your NTSC player with some ok quality.

    check out http://www.vcdhelper.com/ they have good tutorials on how to do this type of thing.

    Hope this helps...

    ATI Radeons are well known for TV out ! No need to transfer DVD's onto video tapes (+ you have to handle the Macrovision thing...).
    I get cristal clear image on my tv and enjoy it a lot !

    ATI Radeon

    I own a GF3 but when i hook it up for tv out it transfers the picture to the tv and turns off the image to the monitor quality is good but in my other system i have a ATI Radeon 8500 which when turned to tv out mode lets me run both monitor and tv at same time a handy bonus!.
