    Where will the dvd recorder be? Will it be internal in a PC or a stand alone desktop unit? What is required to start is removing the macrovision copy guard on the VHS tape. A Macro Remover will cost you about $50. to $100. and will go in between the VCR video output to either the PC capture card or the video input of a stand alone dvd recorder. You only need to worry about the video since the audio is not encrypted so the audio is a direct line in. Once the VHS is copied to your PC, you will need to convert the file format to DVD compliant files before you burn them to the blank DVD. If using a desktop recorder this step isn't necessary. That is the basic startup. Just Google for macrovision removers to find the box needed. A program like Nero Vision Express can be used for the file conversions.
