    No they are not as advanced as pc's. They will not remove the encyption off the dvd. Nor will they shrink the dvd to fit from a dvd-9 to a dvd-5. Use a pc.

    Its true they won't strip the CSS/Macro, but with a good stabilizer they are an effective backup tool. You obviously don't get the same menus, but they do make one (menu). I've found that a 3hr+ movie sometimes looks better recorded on LP speed than it does Shrunk under 50%. The VHS is quite easier than a PC.
