I’m looking for a hardware solution to convert my dozens of MiniDV (HD) tapes to DVD. Ideally, I would love a piece of equipment that could read my HD MiniDV Tapes and Convert them to Blu-Ray – but that might be asking for too much. I’m through trying to bring the Video into a PC/Mac and then edit it, Render it,etc. It takes too long and usually crashes.
I’m looking for a hardware alternative. I can live with straight MiniDV to DVD – provided it can “down scale” a HD MiniDV tape.
I saw a JVC unit that could do this, but I wanted to know if there were any other alternatives out there.
