“The likely death of the video recorder – as reflected in the decision of Dixons not to stock them any more because of the popularity of DVDs – will come as a post-dated relief for millions of adults who claimed never to be able to programme them in the first place.

so I cant tape digital TV on a standard DVD, no, I can watch VHS on DVD, no, so why kill it off just yet, yes there are DVD recorders and Tivo’s but give me a good VCR with PDC & VideoPlus+ before jumping off the analog bandwagon.
