Thread: Where are all the SVHS players gone?

    Default Where are all the SVHS players gone?

    Hi. I am looking at putting my video collection onto DVD.
    Some of the videos aren't looking their best and I was hoping to capture them onto my computer and then clean up the footage before burning.

    I have read a large number of Posts that have strongly suggested that a SVHS recorder/player is best for video restoration (which is what I'm essentially doing) as it ensures that at least the footage has a chance of being displayed at its best which would save some cleaning up at the editing stage.

    So my questions are -

    Who still makes SVHS players?
    Which one is going to play my footage the best? (or do they all?)
    Do they sell them in Australia, or do I have to go overseas to get what I want?

    Thanks for any replies

    Cpt Gavin

    All major manufacturers still make SVHS VCR's. Some particularly good ones too.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Can you suggest any brands that are better than others?
    Are JVC better than Panasonic or Sony for example?
    What price range should I be looking at for a decent SVHS player? (don't worry about currency type)

    Captain Gavin.
