    I am creating video memorials for a local funeral home, used in the state room and as a prelude to the memorial service. Since many relatives of the deceased are old like they were, they do not have a DVD player. I have tried recording from the DVD player to VHS but the quality sucks. I have tried two scan convertors to record from MPEG-2, quality sucks. I have tried PCI TV out quality sucks. The feed thur the VCR from the scan convertor looks great but the playback from tape is fuzzy (sucks). If you can help I will give you some pointers on how to do the same in your town. I get $40.00
    for each SVCD and $10.00 for each copy. It takes about 2 hours to make a memorial.

    If you have a digital camcorder and a firefire connection on your PC you can try this.
    You may get a better quality dub by recording to a firewire camcorder and then recording from the camcorder to a VCR. I have had good results doing this. There is very little loss this way.
