Sorry to be off topic here. But, I need some assistance. My VCR died.
And, since it is ten years old, there is really no point in repairing it.
What I need is some helpful friendly advice on what to look for in a new
one. Normally, this is a decision that I would throw at my husband. But,
he's overseas and currently in the middle of a three week field problem.
And, while a VCR may not seem really important, when your satellite is
currently not receiving, popping in a Disney video every now and then
soothes the wild beasties.
So, here's what I have:
RCA Satellite Dish 18" (should be repositioned and working just fine
sometime next week.)
Zenith 27" Television (only a few years old, has all the perks of that time
So, besides the obvious 4 head thing, and cable ready (not that I'm ever
planning on using cable again) what else should I look for? Has anyone made
a VCR that is equipped to handle the 900+ channels of satellite dishes? How
many days programmable does a person really need? Mostly, I just use my VCR
now for playing videos, but would like to be able to do some recording
(especially on the pay per view movies.) If that's legal, I'm not
sure...So, please respond via e-mail. Thanks for the help!
