Tape may have a bad name in the consumer market, but all HDTV and Digital Movies are still stored on tape by the professionals. Tape has proven itself to be a very reliable format over the last 50 years.

You can upgrade to a damn nice DVD/R for $120 - $100, archive from HD DVR as well as archive old tape material.
How? Aren't the DVR-HD programs encoded to prevent copying to external devices?
Output is handled digitally from the getgo, so bye-bye to all that analogue circuitry in the tape machines.
A D-VHS or DV or Digital8 machine doesn't have any analog circuitry. It's all digital from the Firewire/USB inputs to the recording head to the tape.

Your statement is false.
