Hi. I have a SONY U-Matic Video Cassette Recorder Model V0-5630, a SONY 27" TV Model CVM-2711PS and a SONY Video Camera from the same era along with 100 or so U-Matic Cassettes. These items have been in storage for the past 15 years or so. I am in Gosford (Sydney) NSW Australia. If a collector in the area is interested in picking this kit up for free please let me know.

Janelle,Your best bet would be a Sony VO-9800 or 9850. Those machines play all varieties of U-Matic (low band, high band, SP). The tape could have been used to record in any of these formats.Are there any markings on the tape to indicate if it is PAL, NTSC or SECAM? Taht could be the next problem. But if you know that the tape was recorded locally, changes are that a machine you buy locally will work with the tape.

Hi Leon, Let me try to explain.

RF off tape is used for DOC (Drop Out Compensation) in a TBC (Time Base Corrector). A RF out is an output you can connect to the aerial input on your television. It would also show a channel number because you will have to tune your television to a specific channel. You would rarely find that connector on a professional machine for obvious reasons.Finally the 'TV' connector, usually a greenish 8-pin connector, was a left over from early video recorder connections. The connector provides both inputs and outputs and allowed a videorecorder to be connected to a specially adapted TV so that you could record 'off air' television. Early model videorecorders didn't have build-in tuners. The connectors stuck around for a while because they were a convenient way to connect a VCR to a monitor, connecting both video and audio signals with one cable.

Cheers

hey guys! i have a question concerning some u-matic devices. why do some (like the sony vo-9600 and the sony vp-9000 ) have both an rf (off tape) and an rf out connector? what is the difference between those connectors? i have read that the rf (off tape) connector is used for connecting an external tbc and the rf out connector is used for connecting a monitor or tv. but why is there an extra connector labelled tv then? i would be very happy if anyone could help me and explain what these connectors are used for (and what kind of signals are transported through them)
