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?

not sure but i have a sony dvd recorder/vhs combo and vhs looks a little better than my other combo unit that only is composit also another way to watch vhs if you have a hd tv change it to cinema picture setting

maybe this blu-ray/vhs combo play vhs tapes to digital i will wait for some reviews on it and if it is good i'll get it for x-mas
