Timemachine exporting video files to PC

Question

I am trying to convert so very old VHS video tapes to digital, these are private tapes of a wedding.

I have tried to used VHS player to USB capture device but the quality is awful, but when you watch the video it looks okay. Then I found that if I put a USB hard drive into the TV I could record the AV1 input, it says it saved as an AAC file.

But when I plug the drive into a PC there is an lg_dvr folder but no aac files.

Am I missing something? how can I play these files away from the TV? This is the best quality recording from an old VHS I have seen and would make this process of copying all the old VHS tapes so much easier.

Any help /guidance appreciated.

Videos recorded by TV are encrypted, and may be viewed only on that particular TV.
You probably need better settings for your USB video capture card, or get a better card. Try to Google for VHS capture settings. Long time ago I was successfully using some Terratec TV card to capture old VHS tapes.
Also, some digital cameras have A/V input. Here I have found a list:
