I want to transfer Video Tapes to DVD or other formats.  Would appreciate some advice on which programs to consider

I am not looking for free software (unless there is something exceptional available)

The Tapes are of historical interest and I want to preserve them

I find that DVD disks tend to deteriorate so are there any alternatives (such as large hard disks  - like My Passport Ultra?  It seems to me that  it would make more sense to transfer to master hard disks and then   I can always burn DVD's from these.
