Keeping the muzzle pointed in a safe direction since 2008
Knew a guy who had a pre-conformed VCR. Used VHS sized tapes, but was internally configured differently. Top loading.When it 'gave up the ghost' (in the mid-80s) he could no longer watch the hours of self-recorded movies he'd made, many John Wayne, off commercial TV!It was a Maganavox, and had vacuum tubes inside!Another friend had a Betamax for years. Every time we drive by the closed, defunct video store, he'd yell, "What about my lifetime membership?!"The times, they are a changin'...gfa
We used them when I worked in TV in the mid-90's. They were smaller than VHS and the cases were more substantial. It took many copies of copies before you noticed a degradation in quality.I wondered how long it would take for digital recording to kill them.
