I have two SQPB (S-VHS QUASI PLAYBACK) DVD/VHS Combo recorders. When copying my SVHS recorded tapes, if I connect the two recorders using SVHS cables, will the recorded DVD be in SVS resolution and qualit?. I am usimg two recorders to avoid having so many frames from the edited SVHS tapes.

You posted your question in a forum for HD DVD players, the high-def format that was made from 2006 to 2008. I can, however, answer your question about DVD recorders and Super VHS tapes. No, the DVD copies will not be S-VHS quality. To get the original quality from S-VHS tapes, you need to find a true Super VHS VCR. Definitely, hook the machines together with S-video cables.
