Do I need a DVD w/ Tuner??

mrminrmAugust 15, 2009

I have a Panasonic Plasma TV and have cable with a converter box. I want to purchase a DVD recorder VHS combo so I can put some old VHS tapes onto DVD. Is there any advantage to getting one with a tuner? I have found the better deals on the ones with a tuner, but don't know if there is any reason I would want/need one.

If it doesn't have a HD Tuner, you wouldn't need it ...

If it did have an HD Tuner, it would only be useful for "over the air" (antenna) broadcasts ...

If thats all you want to do then no you wont need a tuner but those units are built to last a long time so for future use a digital tuner would be extremly handy if you want to record tv. Another option is if your video player is still working just buy a dvd recorder and connect your vhs into it to copy vhs tapes. its very simple to do.
