Does it generally work? I can't test it right now. Turns out the old dog of a VCR I've had sitting around for ages is actually fucked. Not really a suprise given it's about 13 years old but this of course means that the recording of Heroes tonight is a no-no.
I've seen a few links about for WM Recorder and others. Anyone done it and care to save me faffing around trying it myself?
