Its really very sad what they started doing in 1990 .. Transferring stuff to VHS digitally... (Older movies also that WERE analogue (Not every company but alot of them))
You do realize that this was a thread from 2009?

If you are concerned about the age of the tapes, get a DVD-R/VCR combo and transfer the tapes to DVD
There have been 10 on the market but I think only 3 are still being sold. But they are probably available on E-Bay.

Current ones will not copy Hollywood movies.

^^^^^^
I have a box of classic movies taped from TV many years ago. There would be no problem dubbing to DVD as there was no copyright restrictions. As far as the 'Hollywood' movies, only those with no copy encryption imbedded. There are many old tapes that don't have it.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. Most tapes that were store bought would not copy to DVD no matter the YouTube trick to do so. So as long as the VCR half works I'm fine to go.

There is a lot of ways to copy them like a TBC but you might as well buy the DVD...
