Interestingly, my wife gave me a VHS tape for a Christmas present today.  The movie is not available on DVD so she found an old copy from a rental house.  Same happened with several classic films I've purchased for my wife. 

 

I tried transfering them to my new DVD recorder, but the copy protection on the VHS is causing it to be unstable, causing it to jitter and roll (if I remember right, all VHS use a technology from Macromedia to degrade the sync).  I guess I'll need to bring home a TBC from work (remember those things?  I still use them at work.)

 

So maybe VHS isn't completely dead.
