A little bit of technical help required please.

If I connected a DVD recorder to a TV and connected A video tape player to a TV and played a video tape, could I record it on the DVD recorder onto a disc?

Thank you in anticipation

I should think so, I used to do the same thing with a Sky box instead of the video player

yep if you get the sockets correct on the TV yes
one is typical oneway [in only]
the other is in/out.

if its anything recorded yourself then all shold be ok, its is commercial video the you might hit the macrovision light/dark switching that is there to stop such copying.

Thanks for that guys, (or girls) I want to get rid of a load of video tapes, (weddings etc) and get them into digital format and it would seem that would be the way to go.

unless your recorder only has one socket, it might be better to do it direct [scart <> scart, recorder to VHS] and not through the tv.
