Something like this?
USB 2.0 Audio/Video Converter - Digitize and Edit Video from Any Analog
Source Including VCR, VHS, DVD

My tape sources are Hi8 and S-VHS, that is S-Video quality between VHS and

(Also I backed up some music from my old reel tape recorder to "HiFi" HQ
VHS tapes 20 years ago). Og
And I got a working Sony Hi8 tape deck and a Panasonic S-VHS deck on eBay a
few years ago, as players beside my still working Sony Hi8 camcorder.
