    Got, It! Do you use back up tapes? yep? One of those but 1,000,000 times bigger (physical size not storage capacity). You use it to store DVD's on.

    Hey, any else here old enough like me to remember [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betamax"]Betamax[/ame]?

    My first film purchase after buying a Sony Betamax machine was Monthy Python's the Holy Grail. Bleeding brilliant but I think that back then in the early eighties it cost £70 which was an arm and a leg for me.

    Yes........

    We were a VHS house, but my grandad swore by his Betamax, I think he only stopped using it when it was impossible to get more tapes for it. IIRC betamax was actually better than VHS...........

    If itís a small screen then youíre talking about 10kv to 15kv and around 25kv in the larger screens so it doesnít do to go messing with it. One thing to consider with VHS players is that if itís chewed a tape once then it will chew other tapes. Better dump it and buy a new unit while you still can.

    Fix the cassette?! I dont restore antiques as well!!

    Got a really underwhelming response from her this morning for doing it....shouldnt have bothered...not that i need praise or anything but she made such a fuss i thought she'd be pleased...

    She said "well i suppose i need to buy another...i just told her to try a tape she wouldnt mind loosing...probably she warn her it might happen again...
