I am very new to forums, usually being able to solve my issues or challenges simply reading other posts, or finding adequate info on the Web... but I am now very lost how to proceed. As a 3D loyalist, I have slides & videos of my son growing up (though I don't know if he'll ever appreciate them). In Nov 1990, I purchased the Toshiba Camcorder, and managed to record may years of images up to about 2005. I still have the original Compact VHS tapes, but back in '06, I burned most of the videos on to regular DVD's. I can display these with the original spliter, on a tube television, but realize my days with my last remaining tube tv are very limited!
I got the sony T1, but my images don't show up right. ANd nothing I did tweaking the bluray player, or the glasses, really made any difference.
I don't have a clue now, what to do, so that I can convert these videos to a format that would play on a BluRay player, allowing the Sony HMZT1 to process and display my images.
From my readings, I would guess the current VHS & DVD's have field sequential recordings. Several different software programs advertise that they convert between different formats, but I really am not certain what I have, and what I need to do, and what is the best way to do this. I would be incredibly grateful for whatever help anyone can provide. I would think someone, somewhere in these posts probably posted essentially the same challenge, but I may not be fluent enough with the terminology to understand what I'm even looking for.
I can really use some guidance.
Thanks in advance.
