    It's not going to be easy! All the "normal" manufacturers have dropped VCRs, although some are still doing VCR/DVD combos. I've resorted to a pair of Daewoos for the last I bought. Can't remember if they do videoplus as I never use it!

    I'm sure ASDA and Tescos still sell them. Schneiders or something like that.

    DVD/VCR Combos still are in a lot of places so that could be a solution

    Out of interest as anybody come across a USB VCR, if they exist? I'm just wondering as TV's aren't being purchased in the school and use of projectors is becoming more and more and the teachers are still fond on their old VHS Tapes. Being able to for them to pass around and connect to their laptops for playing on their projectors could be interested.

    Personally, would just invest in some equipment to convert from VHS to DVD

    We just use the Video input on the projector and pass the sound through the soundcard on the PC using PC speakers.

    This is fine if you have recorded from the TV, but not if you have bought the video (assumes that you have a ERA licence). The other option is to record to a server.

    Why not hook the VCR to the projector video feed?

    Because the fundamental problem is that it is getting difficult to buy "quality" VCRs!

    A lot of the primary schools round here bought combination DVD/VCR players.
