If you're talking about VCR and DVD recorder in one machine then you can't back up copyrighted (commercial) tapes. You'll need a separate VCR and a box that defeats Macrovision copy protection. Since these boxes are illegal in the US, they are called instead color correction boxes or color stabilizers. Also referred to as SIMA boxes. Should be around $50 - $100.

We have a whole forum dedicated to the subject of capturing video located Right Here. (http://forum.doom9.org/forumdisplay.php?f=10)

Read the guides and other threads that are posted for more info. It's not to difficult but you won't learn it overnight.

I am afraid you are going to have to do your own leg work.

But hey, Welcome to doom9!

If you're going to buy something to capture video, do yourself a favor and get one with a hardware encoder, which won't use system resources while it's capturing.
