    There is a movie I want to buy on VHS from Ebay. But from what I can tell, it was only released in PAL format and the seller is in the UK. I have no way of playing or converting the VHS if I were to purchase it. Is there anyone here with the capability (and willingness) to transfer the tape to a DVDR for me? Of course I'm willing to pay a fee if required.

    I may be able to help with this. It's a looong time since they were used but I still have a VHS player and a DVD recorder around here somewhere, probably buried in my spare room.

    What's the movie anyway? Maybe there's a download or another version available that you're not aware of?

    The price of this item on that site is almost as much as the shipping on eBay. I think you might have found him a deal.

    Yeah I saw that but read some skeptical reviews about the site. Not sure I want to chance it.

    And yes, I can play any region on my bluray player. :)
