    Actually, they did make recordable DVD players. I owned one, and it worked pretty well.

    A tad off topic .......

    Back in the Beta vs VHS days was anyone here a Beta person ?

    I got into the battle late when VHS was already the established standard

    Yeah, I still have a Toshiba DVD recorder that works. DVD recorders never really caught on in North America, by the time they came out most people were already using DVRs to record TV shows. But in some countries DVRs never really got any traction so DVD recorders were more popular in those places (Japan for example, where you can even buy set top Blu-ray recorders).

    That came later.
    In the early days, you didn't have all that extra crap at the beginning of a video tape.
    But at least you could FF through it.
    Most of the DVDs I have won't let me skip the previews at all.

    Perhaps if we are discussing the merits of various home media systems, we should consult someone with a logical perspective.

    That's what I use at work when I'm converting VHS to DVD. Sony. Easy to use. I can also use it for Super8, too.
    I am more than machine. More than man. More than a fusion of the two.

    I just fast forward through the previews when there are any.

    More "VHS effect."

    This annoys me a smidge. I've been watching a lot of VHS tapes recently and none of them look anywhere near that bad. Not even the used ones. None are that washed out or glitchy.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...
