1. I remember reading a some product reviews saying that DVD Recorders often record fan/background noise. Is this true? If so, which ones are able to filter this out or at least minimalize it. 2. What kind of wiring is involved with these things? Something as basic as RCA cables or something more? 3. How would I go about converting a VHS to DVD using a recorder? Would I just play a tape on my VCR and run the DVD Recorder at the same time? 4. Can you guys recommend something reliable for around $250?
