    Does this mean a HD-DVD/Betamax combo is on the horizon? :D

    If it was a D-VHS player I'd be tempted, especially at only $400. Saddly there are still a few straggler VHS's that may never be replaced; inwhich case it might be best just to toss them on my media server.

    Panasonic made decent VHS players (still have one). This device would work for my collection.:banana:

    The PS3 doesn't either. I was somewhat stunned when I figured that out and had to use my regionless PAL converter to play some. VCD are literally CDs. You guys can't toss in the software to play that?

    I still play VHS (a lot!) and was looking to get a Blu Ray. If this turns out, I may buy it.

    I have a Samsung DVD/VHS combo, and even with an HDMI out, it still forces me to use composite for VHS. Are there any players out there that transfer the VHS source to digital?
