I’m in the process of converting my old VHS tapes from the 80s and 90s to DVDs with the Diamond One Touch hardware. I’m not that computer literate but I did figure out how to do it and burned my first DVD today. The quality if fine when I play it on my computer but when I put it in my DVD player the quality if pretty bad. Is there any way to make the quality better? I called Diamond technical support and they said that there isn’t really anything that I can do unless the DVD recorder has a way to lower the resolution. Thanks so much for any help you can give me.
VHS tape was never that good to begin with but a decent capture card should give you a quality equal to what you’re used to seeing off of the original tape.
If you’re not seeing that, the only good capture device that I can recommend is the Canopus (now Grass Valley) ADVC 300. Unfortunately this device has been discontinued by the manufacturer but is available on sites such as Ebay. Good luck.
