Hi All - In response to Louis' question I thought I'd put my marketing hat on to offer VT transfer services (normally I'm just here as fan of retro VTRs). I work for The JMS Group Limited in Norwich, we can do dubs to/from all varieties of PAL U-matic and Betacam SP to clean/BITC VHS or authored DVD-R at MUCH better rates than a Soho dubs company. Drop me an email if you want any more info...

Albert, nobody makes U-matic machines any more. There were some attempts by JVC and Panasonic to manufacture them, but the only ones that worked properly were the Sony machines, and they invented the format. As these machines can be obtained nowadays at little or no cost, there is no point in considering anything else.

Hi There,

Is there anyone here in the UK who could transfer about 4 low band tapes to VHS for a small sum?, you are of course welcome to the tapes after the copying!

If anyone would like to get in touch, please e-mail me but take the 123 bit out.

I also have a selection of small/big hi/lo band tapes of various lengths, all nice condition and used only once or twice £1 each. Email for list.

Thanks in advance folks

Hi folks. I'm looking for a service manual for the Sony DXC-M3AP and the DXC-3000AP. Does anyone have a scan at hand, a place to go on the internet or maybe willing to sell? Photocopies would be fine too. Thanks.

Thanks for all the info on high band....I thought I was losing my mind here in NTSC land, since I'd never heard of anything but "regular" and SP..and I've been in video for 40 years!I'm now looking for a BVU -950 for sure.Guy

From my recollection there is no hiband NTSC U-matic. The BVU 200 machines were virtually the same as the VO 2850 models in the USA and Japan, whereas the PAL machines were hi and lo band respectively. I can remember that when there were standards conversions to be performed from NTSC U-matic to PAL you could always play the NTSC tapes from a 5030 multistandard low band player.

Hi Guy,

Is the Sony VO 9800 or 9850 sold in NTSC? If so, these models playback Lo-band, High-band and SP.

Hi all,

I'm looking to buy a U-Matic machine for archival transfers. I have a JVC CR-850 so far, and now I'm looking for something that will play "hi band" and "SP" recordings.Will a BVU -950 play more than the SP standard? It would be great to find a machine that would play all 3...is there such a thing? By the way, I'm in NTSC land.Thanks for any info.

It comes with 2 x serial cables, and is in first class working order and condition, no dents, scratches scrapes or digs. If this is of interest please Email me for more info, or make me a sensible offer. No time wasters PLEASE! I will deliver it to your nearest mainline railway station for free, or you can collect it.
