A pensioner finds a load of old VHS tapes in his loft and buys player on Ebay in order to see what is on them.

This is the thankyou note he sent the seller afterwards

I've got 3 VHS players kicking around in the attic

I've got one of those VHS/DVD combos...  whistle:

Why do I get the feeling that when you bought it the conversation went something like this...

I've had 2 both Toshiba and both failed just like the web say they would as Toshiba do power supplies like Poundshop do Mercedes

So now I just plug the VHS SCART output into the Panasonic HDD/DVD recorder - works fine but it does take a time
Well, whatever nevermind
