Re: I want to transfer my VHS tapes to DVD with a VCR/DVD...
Copyright pertains to distribution of the copies you make. If you plan to only use the DVD copies for yourself then you are not in violation of the law. Of course, the VHS Gnomes and BETA-Max Cops might tell you differently, but who listens to them anymore...

I think you will have difficulties with DVD or Video tapes that have imbedded copy right signas l if you feed the video cable from old device into PVR s input source. You may find the PVR will refuse to record due to copyright . Does the PVR have a USB port you may be able to plug in a 20 Terabytes USB portable drive into it . I am not familiar with the rogers PVR but check its manual to see if it can.
you may be able to convert the DVD or Video Tape into an MPEG -2 or MPEG -4 format and read it on the PVR using a computer.
Copyright law may allow you to convert the type of media (you must own the rights to use original copy) to another format of media (PVR) for your use only. Check if copyright in your country allows this in Australia it is covered under https://www.comlaw.gov.au/Details/C2004C01235

Make sure the materials you're trying to record onto the DVD
is not Copyrighted. Try to record a normal TV program onto your
VHS, transfer it to your DVD and then play it. See if that will
work. A VHS movie is usually Copyrighted and Protected by
Macrovision. The picture output can be displayed on a TV set
for viewing but is scrambled black to a DVD Recorder.
Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.
No,this can be done only copyright materials through the VHS box converter run through a computer with a programs call copy decoders programs.Than u can copy VHS copy protected matrials.Than u reburn it back to DVD disc.So this require alot of work,time and money so not worth it to copy commercially VHS tapes to DVD Disc.
hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.
