Hello all!I bought a Grundig Video 2000 machine in 1982. It came with a add on remote control unit, and it cost me a total of 685. When you consider that I only earnt 65 a week in those days, that was quite a lot of cash! It was a fine machine when it worked, but it did have a few problems with drop-out, etc. Even the tapes were very expensive, with a 8 hour (480)tape setting me nack around 24 a time. Madness!It's good to see that the old format is still being talked about. I still have loads of tapes, and 1 machine, (not the original though) this one cost me 25 about 15 years ago. Not sure if it still works. Must try it out one day.I will return to this site soon, but for now, cheerio.

Hi, I just bought a Philips VR2087. It looks like the VR2023 but it has VR 2087 printed on the front. Is it a "special" version of the VR2023?

Hi never heard about this format before untill today.

Have aquired 2 tapes of ebay of FIRST BLOOD AND RAMBO FIRST BLOOD PART 2.

I have no use for them as I only have a vhs machine.

Was wondering what they were worth and if anybody wanted to give me a fair price for them?

They are apperently precertifaction as the cases do not have any ratings but the tapes do have 15 marked on them.

Hi!Looking for any hints,why my B&O starts correctly,with picture and everything,but after say 2-5 min..it shuts down?.

Here is something for the Grundig2x4-Plus owners.Because there is no tracking,you can take of the whole cover,inside beside the head,you will find 4 goldplated bolts,while u run the tape,adjust with a screwdriver,till u get perfeckt picture.

Works for me/

Thanx Tino/Sweden

Ref your Grundig's mechanical fault. If it is not loading or ejecting cassettes properly it might just need new drive belt which is still available - see earlier message on subject

Hi, I have a V2000 2x4 super VRC - the brown and gold front loader for sale. It is not working, I believe it is a mechanical fault but would be very useful for spares as it has a motherboard with plug-in cards also 17 tapes. I am based in Gloucester.

I am looking for a service manual (the electrical and mechanical parts) for a Grundig 2x4 Video 2000 machine - the familiar brown and gold finished beast. Ideally a printed copy, but a photocopy or scan would be close second choices. Any advice or pointers in a useful direction would be very welcome - thanks in advance.
