Default Is it possible

Hey, I was wondering... is it possible to convert analog VHS cassetes to DVD by hooking up my VCR to my TV tuner and recording it like that there instead of buying an expensive vhs cassetes to dvd convertor, In theory its possible, Just wanted to make sure, thx

Yeah that is possible. Then you just use your normal capturer to capture it, and then get a program that will convert AVI or whatever it is to MPEG-2 for DVD.

A good program that does that, though costs money is TMPGenc I think its called.
I don't know of any free alternatives though but I'm sure there are many.
