Let's talk recording DVD players!

Just saw that Phillips recordable DVD player commercial (where they were burning DVD copies of all their vCR tapes) and it has gotten me thinking - I have a bunch of VCR tapes I recorded of Simpsons and stuff that I would love to transfer to DVD. Here's the deal:

I have a DVD burner and player built into my Dell (not a laptop) but have yet to figure out how to use it (in my defense I just had a son so it has thrown off my free time deverely!). Do DVD burners in computers usually have the ability to burn from VCR's or camcorder - not much info on it in my manual or instruction portion. Am I crazy to want a stand alone burner when I have one in my computer? The stand alones seem much easier.

The ones I'm looking at for $500 - panasonic - I assume they play DVD's as well as normal players? Also do they record whatever is on the TV - so I would just pop in the VCR tape and burn? It also would be nice to burn directly from my TIVO.

Should I wait until tech has uniformed- I know it is early for this format - it probably will be clearer and cheaper in 6-12 months.

Any help with these questions would be appreciated!
