degenerate-afro: I have two VHS, one S-VHS, and an LD player. I haven't used any of them in years, but I still have them.
whereisian: 119 million people live in homes with four or more televisionsThat's nuttier than the VCR thing. Most people I know have one, some have two, can only think of one person with more than that.
cxjohn: I have found there to be very little, if any, content worth "delayed" viewing.
nekom: We stayed at a vacation property last year and they had a VCR and a few tapes in one of the bedrooms. I felt like a damned archaeologist.
Gunny Walker: VCRs are great for kids.1.) Grab the purple tape.2.) Push it into the VCR.3.) Watch4.) If it ends, go to step 2.Can't do that with a DVR or DVD.
moothemagiccow: Yeah I had my VCRDVD combo up until just recently. Hooked up to the plasma and everything in case I wanted to watch the definitive version of star wars they released by mistake in the 90s
gund goat: nekom: We stayed at a vacation property last year and they had a VCR and a few tapes in one of the bedrooms. I felt like a damned archaeologist.Just don't watch the one weird tape with the spinning chair and the well.
cgraves67: THere's a VHS/DVD player sitting in a box in my basement somewhere. We still have it because my wife refuses to part with her childhood collection of Disney tapes that she doesn't watch.
jfarkinB: I've got boxes of poorly-labeled tapes. My plan was to digitize them in batches, quick-scan through them, clip the stuff of sentimental or historical interest, and discard the rest -- but the last working VCR died before I got started. Any advice on a good workhorse VCR player for a task like this, given that the store shelves are no longer full of them?/recovering hoarder//doesn't count if it all fits on one drive///okay, a few drives////plus backups
