Here is the situation. Have a remote camp and our past time at night is watching movies. The problem is that the VHS tapes (yes still using them) and the DVDs are getting damaged. Is there a product on the market that i can use to record movies (a few hundred) and play them directly on my tv or am I forced to get an external harddrive and run them through a laptop or pc? Getting close to time to replace the tv at camp and will do so with a flat screen with the USB in the rear. Any thoughts or suggestions - the kids would be forever grateful. They are getting tired of the same 100 0r so movies over and over again.
