Brian Perendy: You can record Judge Judy or network stuff, but movies on AMC, TNT, FX
etc are all encrypted. etc.
Nicole Dupuis: Chris, i bought this, I copied an old home VHS movie, now I want to upload
the DVD to my computer to edit it with ULead Video Studio but the extension
on my DVD is not recognizable format for me to upload!! What am I doing
cssniper06: Wow nice, very imformative video, except sometimes Chris begings to give
too much information but its still cool.
Tracy Breitwieser: ok, so I watched and waited for him to "show" in detail how to transfer
"VHS TAPES TO DVD" using the sony dvdirect player ( as the title of his you
tube appears).... well, he never showed this, never really showed HOW TO DO
ANYTHING, just spoke ALOT about how to transfer from his camara to dvd...
WASTE OF TIME!!
AccordionManiac: I use a Video DVD Recorder, basically a vhs/dvd combo and it does the same
thing. i love how it does everything for you!!
John Baharoff Sr.: You can not copy copy protected VHS tapes to this DVD recorder VRD-MC5.
Jeremy Johnson: would i be able to rcord analog video8 8mm tapes to dvwith this as well
Exn00bf0rc3: its not on EBAY!
Resistoon: Need a review on Sony's newest DVDirect, the VRDMC10.
Anders Jenbo: I can see how this would be usefull but i would personaly i would want to
edit my personal videos befor burning it to a dvd.
IrvingYAlejo: To the tape part, couldn't you use a DVD Recorder or would that give crap
MajikMuzak: What about Hi8 Media?
sonofzion: just buy a dvd/player recoder! its way cheaper!
popitn2nd: will it work on other video camcorder? like the canon vixia hf100 hd?
Entity001: Geez, ever heard of DVD recorders?!? Just plug the cam in and it records
the video. Easy, simple and cheaper.. If you have a hard drive version you
can also make copies. Useless gadget imho..
n00bdestroyer23: can it burn cd like music and photos
SupermansLois: Problem with my Sony DVDirect, it will not copy a copy protected VHS tape
to a DVD. The beautiful thing about it is that it will copy any movies or
shows I have on my DVR onto a DVD. I, unfortunately, cannot afford to buy a
Macrovision remover so I can burn my old VHS tapes onto a DVD so I'm kinda
screwed with that. I have never owned a camcorder and do not have any home
movies so I could careless about converting those. Anyone have any clues on
how to burn a copy protected vhs to dvd?
Resistoon: So Sony's latest DVDirect is the VRD-MC6 and it costs less than the
VRD-MC10. Anyone know the differences and why such a big price drop on the
Rourba Rarib: is there anything cheap than that thing?
Che Sal: @Resistoon it has a HDMI output
plowking57: I did make 2 DVD coasters in this whole process but I`m going to blame the
cheap media (4xDVD+r) DVD`s I bought all couple years ago. Years ago I
bought a all-in-wonder card and tried to put all my old hi8`s on DVD and it
was so frustrating and time consuming I gave up. The Sony Direct-DVD made
this chore very simple . Thank you Chris I always trust your opinion.
Jayme Darcy: Personally thats a waste of money. your best to use your TV Tuner card and
copy the VHS from a video player to your editor
FrankHamel: This is funny, I was transfering my dad's betamax tapes few weeks ago, had
to go through my TV tuner. long process.. wish I would have known of this
carlystur: My dad's been looking for something that he can use to turn VHS Tapes into
DVDs! I'll tell him about this one.
Bentley Black: Have you hooked this up to a TV with a VCR made into it? I think it will
work, But I would like to hear it from you. DId you find it had all the
connectors needed? Di you have to buy extra? My video camera will not
connect to the computer. It is a Cannon DV ZR85. It will connect to a TV
and play video. Will it be compatable?? Any help will be appreciated.
Your Geek Needs: I guess it is still true about Comcast...
elguille78: hey chris why dont use eyeTV from elgato... is pretty cool!! not that
direct an easy but yo can record all your old tapes to your HD....
BeAtBoXeRkidify: im 13 years old and my parents say that i only play video games on computer
and wants me to transfer videotape to dvd but im only 13 years old and u
have to do a lot of stuff. and i also have to buy stuff i told them idh
money but they are saying theres no money and they get angry at me !!! so
Darren05: ummm no ur not... go away
Kaleb34: !! CHRIS! PWNS! thank you!
plowking57: Yes it will work. The dvdirect comes with NO cables.I got mine at the sony
refurbished store,cheap.good luck .
plowking57: On Chris`s Review I Picked up a VRD-MC5 at the Sony refurbished store.Chris
you are correct,This Gadget is very cool. I`ve recorded 15 dvd`s in the
past 3 days,Several from my old Sony Hi8 Analog,several from my old
Panasonic VHS-C Analog. and two from my newest digital tape camcorder the
Panasonic pvg-s29( 2 years old). I hooked up the S29 with fire-wire and the
VRD-MC5 took control of the S29 ,rewinding it and playing/recording with
the push of one button.
