RIP, VHS - MSN Tech & Gadgets - News and Features
VHS has been dead since about '99/'00.
I watched Empire Strikes Back on VHS recently. It was "strange"
...as the proverbial dodo. I haven't brought a VHS tape since I got my first DVD player 8 years ago.
I haven't owned a VHS tape since 1999 (except for a single copy of TF the Movie). The only place I still see them for sale is at grocery stores and pharmacies, and they're all used copies from the rental days.
The Last testament to them was the movie Be Kind Rewind.
The closest I ever get to using VHS these days is loading S-VHS tapes into my ADATs when I record music. I do still have a VCR, but it's not plugged in. And I'm note sure where I put it.
Its dead, and I dance on its grave.
Bela Lugosi? Check
Yep it's been dead a long time!
What's a VHS? It sounds like a venereal disease.
Dead, along with Beta.
the only place you can find them is Charity Shops
Wow, I didn't know a company actually still made VHS tapes. I have not bought one since I got a DVD player for christmas in 1999. Now I don't even buy DVDs anymore, just Blu-Ray.
VHS, unlike the vinyl record, cannot compete with new media.
The only thing good about VHS is the fact that you can Fast Forward through the FBI warnings, the PSA annoucement, and the "Which company produced the movie" crap.
LIKE I CARE IF PARAMOUNT or LION GATE FILMS produced a movie. I'm watching the movie for the movie. I care about that less than seeing the caterers in the Credits.
In the general public? yes.
In my house? As if. Untill I can figure out how to get the 50 or so family get-together vids onto DVD. I still have the one where I got my first Prime.
Man forget that noise (though VHS will always hold a special place in my heart, grew up with that stuff), bring back cassettes!
Some records or singles still get put out on vinyl. At least cassettes don't skip when I hit a speed bump in my car.
And Poundland !!
Use the OUT Audio/Video jacks of the VCR to the IN of the DVD-R. Adjust the DVD-R to the proper input channel (Turn to Channel Input 1). Press Record on the DVD-R, Press Play on the VCR.
You need a new CD player. Bad Shock Absorbers
While I've repurchased MOST of the movies I had on VHS, I still have 2 rubbermaid tubs full of VHS movies I've taped off of TV, and dozens of wrestling PPV's. I'll always have a VCR in my house because of this. But, I did buy a PVR in September to tape TV on, and it is used CONSTANTLY now. DVD and BR all the way for movie purchases these days, though.
