HI I have asked this question before but our lass lost the answer which i had printed out.

We have a brand new (early 2008) Sony DVD Recorder/ player with hard drive and "free view" A Sony T V and a Sony V H S player and 3 "scart" leads.
Yet, we are incapable, between us, of fathoming out how to record onto disc, our V H S home videos.
All we seem to get is the various shopping channels "our Peg" watches.
Please will someone explain (in dumb speak) how we do this!!!
Many thanks frustrated Chris

The reason you're recording shopping channels is you need to select a different source than the digital tuner. On the remote will be a source button and this will switch between av1 (Scart ) av2 (front panel connector) dtt and analogue tuner. If the VHS is on Scart then select av1 and do a test recording onto hard disc. Check you can play it back ok then transfer all the tapes onto hdd. I do this at home and add in chapters later on, trim and add menus before burning to dvd. Good thing is once on dvd if another member of the family want a copy it'll do a high speed dub in a few minutes even if the disc is 3 hours long.
You may take a look at this guide, it's about how to capture video from VHS to computer and burn to DVD, it works pretty well for me
