3 hours of video won't fit on a CD-R but will fit on 3 DVD(-R)'s.
One of these days, I plan to hook up my VCR to my Mac, but I haven't
done it yet.

I used to have a S-VHS to S-VHS copy setup, but one of the VCR's
seems jam tapes. Maybe I can replace the one that jams with one from
another room and see if I can set it up again.
