    1. I left London having had to dump 300+ VHS films because my new TV in Norfolk had no SCART lead connection. I tried to give them away, but nobody wanted them.
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I had to dump all mine when we moved here, Liz, more than 300 films. My new TV in Norfolk didn’t have any SCART lead cconnection. I tried to give them to charity shops in London, but they wouldn’t take them. 🙂
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Years ago, when I was still living in Germany, I managed to transfer quite a few of my VHS tapes to DVDs. Unfortunately, after moving to the US, I could not find a VHS-player here that could read VHS-tapes in the PAL-format AND could be run on 110 Volts. So there are lots of DVD-tapes still sitting in our old place in Karnes City which I’ll never have the chance to watch.

        1. It is possible to still buy ‘multi-region’ dvd players here, Pit. (I have one stored in the loft) Otherwise, we can only play Region 2 DVDs, and not those bought online from America.
          Best wishes, Pete.

          1. That, a multi-region player, is what I was looking for but couldn’t find, Pete. But then, nowadays one is spoiled by the high resolution of tv and computer screens, and thus watching movies jn that old VHS-resolution takes away some of the fun.
            With DVDs from a region our players don’t di I usually run them on my computer and save them in a different format.

  1. Still have; don’t use [other than for the digital clock] but I keep it as a) it works and b) I have loads of videos “I might want to watch one day” 😉 I would use the remote in preference to having to get up out of my chair to punch the controls, of course! Cheers, Jon.

    1. I threw away two VHS machines and over 300 film tapes when I moved here. I no longer had the room to store them, and couldn’t find a modern TV that took a SCART lead. I couldn’t even give them away to chairty shops, as they had no demand for them, even selling at just 20p each.
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. It’s a shame, but technology moves on, and generally reduces in size in the process. I think I’ve mentioned before about my old TV [thanks Mum!] which has SCART sockets; who knows: it might see me out 😉
