    I am currently transferring my large VHS collection to DVD+R disks via a
    standalone DVD recorder from a VCR. But will the disks play in the new
    format Blu-ray or HD players? All info I've run across says "yes." Any
    truth? Or am I wasting my time and money?

    Yes, though watching VHS-quality video on a HiDef set is rather like
    drinking Schlitz from a crystal wine glass.
