l have the movie Superfly on DVD. But the sequel, Superfly T.N.T, was never released on DVD. l bought the VHS on Ebay. Went to my grandmother's house today and she still had an old VCR. Took it home and it still works-yes! Tried my wife's Steel Magnolias tape to test it.Now l just need to wait for the movie to arrive in the mail. The movie was released in 1973-the year after Superfly. Next time l go to grandma's l'll dig out my DVD recorder. lf it works l can record the movie to DVD.

l found a picture of the model Toshiba DVD recorder l have at my grandma's where some of my stuff is stored. l bought it in 2008 and haven't used it in about 5 years. Hope it still works.

Still waiting on the tape-should be here this week. And l ordered another VHS program that's not available on DVD. The VCR is going to be busy coming out of retirement. Maybe l should invest in a VCR head cleaner lol.

So far so good. The tape arrived yesterday. l watched the first 40 minutes of the movie and it played good. l used to think VHS recorded in the SP speed was good quality lol. Now that i'm used to DVDs, l don't think it's so good anymore. Would hate to watch a VHS recorded in SLP. Back in the VHS days, l mostly recorded in SLP so l could get 6 hours on a T-120 tape :)

Sounds like you're doing a fun project, Bill.

I remember my grandfather owning a Philips M2000 recording system which apparently was very advanced at the time but surpassed by VHS sales volumes.

Equipment: D810 | D300 | D50 | B700 | P5000 and some lenses.
