Looks as if someone has seen our site!

Also looks as if someone has a good sense of humour rearding the announcement of a new VCR above. I doubt that Sony people would be out and working the net on Sunday!

I have howver heard that Sony did announce a new deck coming out in an aricle in the Des Moines register on teh 12th or 13th of last month. Have been unable to track this down although alos heard that a similair story was in the Chicago Tribune last weekend, which i have alos been unable to confirm.

Help!Can anybody tell me the difference between betacam, beta SP and consumer beta? Are they more or less the same format? Can consumer beta tapes be viewed on betacam or beta SP equipment?Thanks!Chris

To Terry Ortman; Don't junk out that slf-750 yet! 1st. try replacing the fuse in the power module(its easy but find someone to do it for you if you don't know how) then see what else may be wrong!

To Graham; I haven't forgotten! I'll be in touch within the next couple of days meanwhile see if you can find Black & White recording and play it on the machine (its important)let me know if its any different!! Best Wishes Al.

Can anyone direct me to a site where I can find a quality GIF/JPEG/PICT/etc of any of the fantastic Beta/Betamax logos (like the ones you would see on the tapes and players)?

Hello Beta Folks, A dear friend passed away in 1996 and left me his video equipment. Some of it has sat on my shelf since then. One item is a SONY Super Betamax SL-S600. He paid $401.25 new in 1995. Anyone interested??? I cannot locate the remote.

Have for sale, make offer, a SONY SL-HF750 SuperBeta Hi-Fi VCR. I won this at auction for $400.00, it was described as playing tapes but no video. I got the machine and the power does not work, it won't turn on, and if you remove the retaining screws for the Linear Skate Tape Mechanism, the tape door comes open if you hold it with the front facing down. I believe the unit was damaged in shipment, but the seller refuses to take it back, and said it was sold-as-is. Why he insured it for $500.00 I don't know, because I can't file an insurance claim because it was sent from Canada, and I have been told I need to return it to Canada for the Insurance. I have since bought another SL-HF750, so if anyone needs this for parts, or wants to repair it, make me an offer.

What great news - and what a coincidence! Apparently Philips is bringing out a revamped V2000 machine with long play and further improved picture quality - if that's possible! Watch this space for more info. It seems there is life in the old (best) formats yet!

Wow April's here at last! Spring weather should be just around the corner.I'm pleased to announce that in answer to the pleas from devoted fans of the Beta format Sony will be coming out with a special 2001 Edition SuperBeta Hifi VCR. It will be a multi system (PAL/NTSC/SECAM) unit with BIs recording capability. We are currently taking order as of April 1.
