In the search box to the left (not the one at the top of the page) type in VHS TO DVD which will bring up 19 threads on this subject. I can't give you a link because it will not accept one. Personally I would forget the PC route and purchase a home DVD recorder such as the Panasonic DMR-E55 which can be obtained for around £180.
This machine also supports DVD-RAM discs which you can use as a PVR. They can also be re-used up to 100,000 times. Each recordable disc can also be
set to record up to 8 hours on one 4.7GB DVD-R disc.
