I'm sorry I can't see the image, the downscaling is horrible, the text is all garbled.

but the co-ax idea should still work.
From Toshiba's site:
  • HDMI Output - No VHS output
  • Y/Pr/Pb Output DVD Only
  • S-Video Input 1front/1rear
  • S-Video Output DVD only
  • Audio/Video Input 1front/1rear
  • Audio/Video Output
  • L-R Audio Output
  • Coaxial Out
  • RF Input
  • RF Output with modulator
Toshiba Canada - home entertainment - dvd players - dvd recorders - DVR7

I'm assuming the HDMI should output up-scaled DVD.

But it seems coax/RF is the best way of doing this without buying any expensive upscalers. Honestly though, how many VHS tapes do you really watch this day and age? Why not obtain DVD copies of the media instead? Or if it's like home movies or something, get a capture card for your PC and convert them to DVDs.
