Dont want to get involved in some one elses argument, but dispite the nasty e-mails I read from some old bloke, I decided to use Mr Potters service, I posted my tape to him last Monday and recieved it back today. Spot on! As for the cost, if I didn't think it was worth it I wouldn't have sent it. Cheers Martin, Top bloke!

Now we are fed up of all this junk from Mr. Ken Rodgers!! If he har bothered reading the guidelines for this chat, he will (hopefully) understand that he i violating them. I will not take part in the conflict between him and Mr. Potter, but his messages are not serious at all. Hanging another person out on at chat like this is at least to be acting like a child. And the only thing that he obtains is giving sympathy to Mr. Potter and to be hated himself.

I do hope that the moderator of this board removes all the above mentioned junk.

I am writing this message anonymously only because I am afraid that Ken R. would spam my E-mail too if I had given name and address here. A person as seious as him could well do that.

Are there any administrators watching over this Chat Page??

If so, please can you delete all the recent messages from Ken Rodgers, Martin Potter and their friends.

I hope you both resolve your differences very soon, but please continue your arguments via e-mail and stop spoiling this once good chat page, which is supposed to be dedicated to V2000.

Please do us all a favour and stop spamming each other through this chat page!!

Let me make it perfectly clear about Mr. Potter.... he was given a chance to mail back my valuable non replaceable 20 year old tape......... I provided him a U.P.S. RETURN NUMBER to RETURN the irreplaceable item........ NO COST!!!!... safely ......... His decision to put it in the mail without postage ...... overseas just like putting it in the garbage!...... This is not a man of integrity he lied to me about returning my tape to end this and he is lying to all of you........ HIS MOTIVE IS MONEY ............... petty but true............ he holds a copy on DVD ( he tells me) and is trying to exploit me for that!............ I will not let Potter get away with poor business practice at the expense of hostage holding...... BE WARE!!!!! of doing business with Potter your non-replicable items may be LOST or held HOSTAGE by a THIEF ...........thank all you who have e-mailed me about this, customers should not be bashed or treated poorly by business owners..... we need to stand up to the ternary of these individuals................... I WILL NOT BE IGNORED!!! I WILL NOT GO AWAY!!! I WILL NOT LET POTTER RIP OFF ANOTHER PERSON !!!!!!!!!! THIS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL MY TAPE IS RETURNED AND WE ALL GET AN APOLOGY.

Martin Potter & Ken Rodgers you are both being childish to say the least ! No one is suggesting the return post should be free - But simple putting the video tape in a post box without potstage is at best petulant. A very cheap second class surface post would not have bankrupt you Mr Potter ! Mr Rodgers move on - you have had a bad day with regard to this issue. As with regard to transfering video footage onto VHS or CD r at cost price plus second class post is well in the reach of many Video 2000 fan who may not be so well off as you Mr Potter, at least this way I provide the rare chance of those who at one time in the past owned a video 2000 machine can transfer video footage for less than £ 2 a tape, - not everyone wants to pay through the roof for the odd favorite movies from the 80's etc to be saved

I would also like to give my support to Mr Potter.

I have a collection of vintage Philips VCR's, and in recent months Mr Potter has given me regular advice and assistance via e-mail, on how to repair and service those recorders. He has given me lots of his time and advice for free, and has been invaluable.

I am pleased to recommend Mr Potter to all other Palsite visitors.

Martin Potter: WARRNING THIS GUY IS FAULTY check out his e-mails .... if you are following this he is A BIG FAT LIAR ......

Ken, Thanks for the post on PAL Site , Due to you posting my name and your comments I have had 3 requests to transfer tapes just today,Thankyou. Everyone who contacted me thinks you are going a bit too far and making a fool of yourself "My Lawer is bigger than yours " is the best Ken . They all agree you should have sent payment if you cherish your 20 year old tape so much then you would have had it sent back 1st class mail and it would be there by now.I don't know how you expect me to pay for postage of your tape from the UK to the USA would cost at least 6 UK Pounds if not more Anyway keep on posting your comments it's all working out fine for me . Your DVD looks quite good ,can't be your tape anyway as It's PAL encoded and German ,You use the inferior NTSC system over there and V2000 machines were only available in Erope 20 years ago so who's the German friend you have promised to transfer it for ? Maybe he will send payment for the DVD ? Regards,Martin

Joe :

I transfer all tapes to DVD not on VCD lower quality on standard CD's like yourself and the equipment is expensive ,I don't use a PC ,The tape is played and composite signal is fed to a filter then fed direct to a Philips DVDR 980 Stand alone recorder and recorded to DVD in real time at a high Quality setting.all this takes time and I sit through the whole tape to monitor it.And if people (Yes you Ken ) send me return postage payment it helps .anyway thanks for your comments.Regards,Martin Potter

Mr Martin Potter I believe it would best serve this chat room if you went elsewhere - you have & continue to upset others with regard to making large amounts of money in transfering video 2000 to other formats. In any case it is morally wrong to over charge supporters of video 2000 & betamax users to transfer video footage to other formats.

I provide the same service as you & it's my opnion that this kind of work should be done as a hobby & the charge for such a service should be at Cost Price ( ie: the cost of a blank tape or bank CD) Plus second post.

You should be ashamed of yourself at the was you have treated others users of this format!

I hereby call on all other users of the Video 2000 & Betmax format to boycott this man (Martin Potter) untill such time he has resolved outstanding issues & takes a less Capitalist approach to riping people off.

Video 2000 Users .

It was just last night I managed to get my head around this problem & I have now corrected this problem.

I bought a standard scart lead & placed one end into OnDigital box & feed the other end into A/V scart on the Video 2000 machine, I opened up this end & soldered a Video out / Audio out Phono leads - which I feed into my Betamax Video in /Audio in & then used ariel out connection & feed this into my VHS Machine which in connected to my TV .

This now means I can record UK normal transmissions or Digital Transmission via my Video 2000 or Betamax & VHS & it also makes it very easy to transfer programmes recorded on Video 2000 or Betamax to VHS format - all this is looped into my computer & now I can transfer (capture) onto normal CD-R any programming in Divx/Xvid format.

Wow, this has been an interesting project but worthwhile.

I hope this Solution helps others get around a simalar problem.
