Some recent eBay feedback below.
What will the kit copy? What won't it copy? You'll be able to copy all your own homemade videos and
most things recorded from TV (although legally speaking you shouldn't keep those programmes longer than 30 days).
Each shop bought video we tried converted fine (Ivor The Engine, The Clangers and the Bond movie Goldeneye)
Anything else you have, on what looks like a regular blank tape, should be transferable.
Technical information : The software supports PAL (UK/Europe/Australia/New Zealand) & NTSC (USA/Canada) devices.
Both S-Video and Composite video inputs are supported by both hardware and software (we supply a composite lead).
Even and odd fields are combined into single frames that can be captured at full frame rates for the applicable standard (VHS Upscaling).
The maximum supported frame size is: PAL (UK & Europe) 720 x 576 (DVD quality) @ 25fps / NTSC (USA) 720 x 480 @ 30fps.
Captures video & audio over USB to a standard MPEG, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 or H.264(requires a fast 2.8GHz+ dual or quad core PC for live H.264 capture, slow systems can convert post-capture) or uncompressed AVI file.
Our USB adapter performs Time Base Correction - which means even if your 1980s wedding video has gone all wobbly & wavy our adapter will still capture what remains, providing it plays back on a TV okay.
In addition to the USB adapter, we send a two metre yellow/red/white phono lead PLUS a Scart adapter - this means you can connect all Scart equipped VHS & Super VHS VCRs and older VHS-C, Hi8, Video8, Digital8 & Mini-DV camcorders. Even older pre-Scart VHS and Betamax players can be attached (see Attaching Cables PDF Guide and just ask if you need the free BNC adapter).
You can also connect more modern equipment, such as Freeview, satellite and cable TV hard drive recorders and camcorders with DVD or memory cards - basically, anything that can be connected to a TV by Scart or Yellow, Red & White leads can be recorded onto your PC. DVDs you produce will play back in any DVD player, providing you use DVD-R or DVD+R media and not rewritables.
How easy is it to use? Just plug the Scart adapter into the back of your VHS video player, attach the yellow, red & white lead,
connect the USB capture device, install software from the CD, finally plug the USB adapter into your PC.

We've tested the kit with a wide variety of laptop & desktop PCs running Windows 10, 8.1, 8 and 7.
If your PC is less than six years old, it will be powerful enough to run our kit.
Please read the pre-purchase FAQ page if you're still running XP and aren't quite sure if your PC will be powerful enough.
We give you all the hardware and software you need to connect your VCR or camcorder to your PC.
The included software makes the capturing, editing & burning of your project simple.
Our kit includes three pages of easy-to-follow instructions for Windows 10, 8.1, 8 & 7, along with a video tutorial on the CD that shows you exactly what to do.
If you need further help we're only a phone call or email away.
We buy direct from the USB device manufacturers & only supply the most recent versions. We know our products inside and out & only sell direct.
You can buy cheaper looking products from a 'Newspaper Reader Offer' or a PC megastore, but they'll often supply only half the cables you need or USB hardware with poor signal-sync that gives jumpy results. Our kit is complete, works perfectly & comes with real support.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How do I connect my camcorder to your USB adapter?
A. When your camcorder was new it came with a TV/AV cable, that most commonly has a small 3.5mm plug that goes into the socket marked AV on the camcorder, and breaks out into yellow, white and red RCA phono plugs, and they would normally attach to your TV (in this case our USB device instead). Replacements are available for under £5 if you've lost the camcorder's AV/TV cable - email a photo of the AV output socket on your camcorder to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the make and model, if you're not sure which one you require. This lead isn't included with the kit as you should normally have the correct one already, and not all camcorders have the same AV socket design.
Q. How do I load the software if my PC doesn't have a DVD drive?
A. Our instructions include download links for customers who have PCs without DVD drives.
Q. How long does it take to get one hour of video onto a DVD?
A. Capturing one hour of video takes sixty minutes. Authoring (only needed for making DVDs) takes another sixty minutes, on a fast PC. Burning to DVD takes fifteen minutes.
Q. What formats can I capture video in?
A. The software we supply supports MPEG, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, uncompressed AVI & H.264 formats. H.264 video can be played back by Kodi, iPads & Android tablets.
Q. Does the kit work with all versions of Windows?
A. Yes. We've personally tested it with all variations of Windows 10, 8.1, 8 & 7 (32 & 64 bit).
Q. Where can I get some free Cloud storage for my captured videos?
A. You can get 5GB from Google. Then view the video on any of your devices.
Q. How easy is it to use the kit?
