    Specs:
    Aluminium Macbook 2.4 Ghz 4GB RAM, SSD 24" Samsung Display, iPhone 4, iPad 2
    Not if you burn it with iMovie, no. You'd be better off importing the VHS tape and then burning the video files onto a DVD using the Finder. He won't be able to watch the video in a DVD player, but he could copy them onto his PC and edit them.

    If you burn it using iMovie, he would need to rip the DVD again, which is usually much more time-consuming and tricky.

    Specs:
    PPC Mini, 10.4.11. Intel Mini, 10.6.8. MacBook Pro, 10.10.5. iPhone 3GS.
    You will need this:
    Video Capture overview

    or this:
    Canopus ADVC-110 - Apple Store (UK)

    to transfer the video to your Mac. Why not transfer direct to his PC?

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Or EyeTV, which is considerably less expensive than the two options MightyGem mentioned.

    Yes, but I think that the normal EyeTV products only give you a co-ax connection to the VCR.
