Is there a large database somewhere for guide-pin diagrams? I found an old Quasar titler recently, and it won't work without external power. It does has video in/outs, though. Thanks.

Truly... Brenda has some Multisystem deck to sell me, but I don't remember quite what it is.... But my computer can use any kind of video standard so it could be of much use...

Hey Sergio-I've also got picture of the Navco 2500 on my computer, from the time I saw one up for auction on Ebay. If you want I'll email the files to you.

Hey guys, tis me. Been away for the summer, but came in possesion of a mint T-50ME just recently. Over the past months, I've seen a lot of horror/cult films on PAL beta (from UK) on eBay that I've never seen anywhere in the States. So, needed something to play these on. Although, I'd love to acquire a hifi PAL deck (HF99? HF100? ) of some type since my TV will accept the signal directly.

Well anyway, Just let it be known, that I was talking to "Replacementremotes.com" on the 'phone (For the remote to the LD player you sold me, Brenda), and they said that they'll have a whole new web site up by the end of the month. Lots of stock is in and they have stuff that's not listed, so if anyone wants some of the nicer remotes like the RMT-143 and so on they should check the site next month... those things usually go for LOTS of money on Ebay...

That "strange and mysterious" ebay link about a cassette reference plate has a Sony part number starting by J, so therefore it is some kind of jig. For me it looks like a deluxe dummy cassette which could be used to work on reel tables.

_@_v - eee! i also have a multi-system sl-t50me but the only japanese movie i have right now is godzilla - king of monsters.

_@_v - as for great escape rides there's of course the vomit comet or what's known as a general electric scenic railroad...

_@_v - or "enron 401k - the ride"

Speaking of Great Escape(s).. I imagine you have all heard by now that Charles Bronson is no more.. It's like of late my entire childhood is dying, almost everyone I enjoyed and/or looked up to.. really gets to make one feel old.. :|

I drove by the Great Escape several times... stayed at the Fort William Henry. Very nice place. I guess you'll have no trouble finding the place I'm talking about then... had a ball making up funny names for the rollercoasters and big spinning whateveritis... The whirly-puke... the spin-n-puke... the whirl-n-hurl... you get the picture. Endless variation.

Hey everybody, I'm back from a vacation to upstate New York (Lake George, I'm sure you're curious, Olive). It was enjoyable to say the least, but the only thing close to being on-topic was a marvelous "flea market" store that had large electronic and computer lots, but the current roundup was mostly old computer gear I didn't care to plow through, and lots of training aids from electronics schools. It did seem to be the kind of place that would have Beta VCRs regularly, so, Olive, if you ever go to the Lake Geore area, the place was called "Silverwears".

Hi JSP,

Vcr Sony Betamax model SL-C9ME is multi-standard (?): PAL, SECAM and NTSC with two or three speed recording (BI plakback only) BII and BIII? Yes or no?

Perhaps, model SL-C9PS with SECAM OST, different timer programming/number channel (tuner) from SL-C9E?

Bye

in regards to the C9 labeling standards, the C9E is a standard European, the C9ES is standard european with stereo tuner.

mated with an appropriate digital PCM encoder, any of the C9 's can record digital audio at the expense of the video channel.

I have seen C9E /ES/AS/UB/CH/CK/ME and I am sure there is more variants.

The Australian model came with a stereo tuner standard, how ever the European model had a choice. Its interesting to note how ever, more European models seem to have found there way into Australia than Australian designated units.

Great units, but the DCDC's and load gears are to be checked out. But they can be rebilt with the right gear and we have done dozens of DCDC's, replacing every part including non available transformers.

I think it was mentioned here that the suffixes on PAL Betas were region codes for their intended destination due to minor variances within the various country's broadcast standards. IIRC ES stood for Europe Scandanavia.
