    I am looking to buy a VCR that has an S-video socket so that I can transfer
    my tapes to DVD via my camcorder. But I am having trouble finding info
    Does anyone know of any good VCR's that have a S-Video socket? I don't want
    to spend much money.

    Does your camera have a composite video in socket? If so, why not just use

    You would be up for a couple of hundred dollars for a VCR with S-Video
    output (if you can find one). The manufacturers are doing everything to make
    them as cheap as possible these days as they move towards running them out,
    so it may be a bit hard to find one.

    AFAIK your best chance for S-Vid out is a DVD Player / VCR combo. Not great
    value in these however. Try your local discount whitegoods and electrical
    products retailer - they need the comissions ;)

    Seriously, I doubt that using an S-Video out from a VCR is going to be much
    better quality than good old composite - especially for home videos (you
    wouldn't be copying anything else now would you), but it's your project so
    feel free to do it how you want.

    If you only have Svideo input on your card try one of the Svideo to
    Composite video adaptors,,

    ** She would need one that goes the other way - composite to S video.

    Seems she has a mini DVD camcorder.

    ** Way cool - Jaycar have one that might do as well then - if such
    bi-directionality is normal.
