Okay, I've seen this question posted before and I just got an email this morning from Roxio showing how it can be done for Mac users. Actually looks pretty cool. Here's the link:
Convert Video Tape to DVD on your Mac!
Seems like it's a little dongle that has connectors (standard video, audio and S-Video) on one end and a USB connector on the other. Allows you to plug your VCR directly into your Mac. In combination with the Roxio software, evidentally allows you to copy your video tapes onto a DVD.
Price is right also! I may just have to try this thing!
