Default Ripping VHS to DVD

Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but here it goes:

My brother in law has a HUGE collection of sports games (boxing mostly) recored to VHS. He wants to now put them on DVD for space saving and to avoid degridation and having to buy a new VCR.

As I understand it there are 2 ways to do this. One would be to buy a program to assist with this and plug the VCR into the computer and rip them to DVDS. I dont think this is a good idea for them as they are not very computer literate and their machine is a little on the weak side.

The other option would be to try a store that specializes in this. The problem here is copyright issues. I dont want them to get into trouble or anything.

So the last option would be a specialized machine that includes 1 button ripping of the VHS to the DVD.

Does ANYONE have any opinions or options on this? Seriuosly, a link to a specialized machine would make their (and my) life MUCH easier.
