Hi Trevor, VHS stands for nothing more sophisticated than Video Home System. Some thought it stood for Video Helical Scan because of the position of the video head in relation to the tape, but this isn't true.

Have Grundig 2x4 Super [bought new in 80s] and now have problems!! (1)some number buttonsstick in, I believe this was a known fault, and (2) sound seems high pitched as if thetape is running too fast. If anyone has a solution to these faults or has a service manualor knows of a V2000 repairer within reasonable travelling distance of Portsmouth pleasecontact me at the above E-mail address. I have only just discovered this site and was amazedto find so many loyal supporters!! I was beginning to think that I was the last person inBritain to still have a V2000 machine, I have been uplifted!!!

Pinch Rollers for the VR2324, VR2334, VR2220(Portable) are still availible. I think they are the same as used in later VR6xxx VHS machines. I've ordered several recently when they arrive the invoice gives a VR6xxx model but they work perfectly. I'll try and find out what the model is and post the info.

Keith.

To robert [above]

It might just be that the Pinch Roller is worn and causing the tape to snag on the guides. The machines you have are two of the best V2000 machines made - in my opinion [and the VR2324 is the same as the VR2334 - they just put a different front panel on it! The slow/ still/ reverse/ x3/ frame by frame and time elapsed/ remaining buttons are all there on the PCB, just no buttons on the panel - and the remote sensor is just not fitted.

You might be lucky and find video 2000 pinch rollers still available somewhere!

Hi V2000 fans. I have two Philips machines a VR2324 and a VR2334 and a lot of tapes which I want to transfer to VHS (or even better to SVHS). Unfortunately when I play the tapes they are being destroid due to a faulty capstand transport. The tapes (VCC480 type) are wringled and thus the other side cannot be played any more. Does any one know of this problen and has a solution? Or is there some one who wants to sell a working machine (In The Netherlands)?

Hello,

I am getting a 2X4 from Germany and I'd like to use it to receive broadcasts in the UK.Is there a way to switch, or modify, the tuner to receive the sound signal on the 6MHz carrier, as it is broadcast here in the UK?

Thanks.

Richard.

Hello fellow V2000 enthusiasts. I'm clearing a bit of space in my flat and have two machines and a ton of tapes. The machines are: Philips VR2020 and Pye VR2023 - both in full working order and cosmetically very good. The Pye has the I/R sensor and a non-working remote control. I also have over 30 tapes for these machines. AND - the full SERVICE manual for the 2023. I'm looking in the region of 100 for the lot. Buyer to collect from east London. Thanks for your time guys.

I have a Philips VR 2414. I use it to demodulate the TV-cable signal to video signal so that my computer's video card understands it (it has video-in). The problem is that the VR 2414 automatically shuts down after some time when it's not playing or recording. And when I just use it as a tuner, it never plays back or records so that I have to switch it back on every now and then, which is quite irritating.Now I know that one solution is to just record everything I want to watch for more than a few minutes, but that doesn't really make things any easier.So it would be nice if anyone could tell me a way to remove the auto-off feature. There must be some component inside that shuts it down, but I've no idea which it is. Ofcourse I could just analyse all the circuit boards to find out but that would take ages :-(

So anyone who knows a few things about the VR 2414 and might have an idea how to solve this, please respond.

thanks,Arjen

I have five V2000 machines - two Philips and three Grundig, some working and some not, three even have user manuals. I am sure that at least four of them have good heads. One of the Philips also has the remote control unit. These are now taking up valuable space that is needed for another project. I am situated in the lower Midlands (Hereford).If anyone wants to make me an offer for the lot (75 ?? worth it for heads and power supplies alone) then let me know. If you want further details email me and I'll forward them.

I noticed that many 1970's TV shows were deleted and re-used because of rising costs in videos or they are turfed out because they take up too much space.

In Australia we had a fantastic pop music show called "Countdown" which started in October 1974 and finished around April 1987. But most of the episodes from 1974 to 1978 were deleted and re-used so hardly any episodes from then still exist. However I reckon there are people in Australia that would have either owned a Philips VCR or a VTR and taped Countdown back in the mid 70's when those shows originally aired. Now if there's ANYONE out there in Australia or even overseas who has old Countdown episodes on reel-to-reel or Philips cassette PLEASE email me because I would love to buy or trade for them or copies of them.

Also I bet there are people in UK who taped Top Of The Pops on those Philips VCRs or VTR in the 60's and 70's. If anyone reading this board has Taped early Top Of The Pops episodes on Philips cassette or VTR reel-to-reel please email me. A lot of Top Of The Pops episodes prior to 1977 were deleted. There are ABSOLUTELY NO episodes prior to 1967 however some footage still exists and I have a some of the clips on VHS tape from that "Sounds Of The 60's" program. From 1967 to 1973 not too many episodes exist. From 1974 to 1976 I guess half of them still exist. From 1972 only 2 episodes exist which is a shame. How I know this is I looked through the Popstastica Encyclopedia on the Top Of The Pops website and I looked through each episode guide. The only hope of recovering the missing episodes is on old home video tape whatever format it may be.

Also there was a really sad story with the early Dr Who episodes, a lot of the 60's episodes were burnt to a crisp to make more space in BBC archives. However more and more episodes have been recovered over the years as many copies were made for airplay in various countries around the world. Still I bet there are people out there who have some long lost episodes on reel-to-reel tape. Also although all of the 70's episodes still exist some of them only exist in B&W due to the fact the colour ones were canned. But there's always a chance of recovering the colour ones on early home video.

Anyhow as I mentioned I'm on a big hunt for Pre-1978 Countdown episodes taped when they were originally aired so if anyone has them on home video please email me. Also ABC might like to digitally copy them to Digital Beta and air them in next January's Countdown season on Rage. 1975 was a fantastic year of Countdown because there was a lot of fantastic glam rock such as:SkyhooksSherbetHushAC/DC (They were once a glam metal group)Ray Burgessetc...

And I heard Alice Cooper also performed live on Countdown in March of 1975 however I'm not so sure if that footage was kept. And the fashion was real wild that year. Also the Temptations might have done Countdown around September of 1975 as well.

I've just GOTTA get those early episodes.
