Warner Bros. to Close Down DVD and Blu-Ray Division; AT&T Screws Up Again in General Discussions Posted April 27 21 hours ago, hamradio said: Should try to acquire a combo unit for backup. I have 2, a JVC DR-MV150 which has been software upgraded to multi region and a Panasonic DMR-ES46V. Shouldn't toss out tapes, may accidentally throw out a valuable memory (baby first steps, graduation, wedding, etc.) I have two combo units. A Toshiba that records to DVD or VHS and from one to the other and a Magnavox play only. The Magnavox is a rebuilt unit I picked up at Fred's very cheap to use when I exercise. I play DVD's about cars, trains, old commercials and other such. When we got the new Smart TV, decided to upgrade to a Blu-Ray, but kept the Toshiba in case I want to record something. Recorded a lot when I first got it years ago, but not so much anymore. I got rid of all my VHS tapes after transferring the ones I wanted to DVD. Most of them had deteriorated anyway. Incidentally, I received 3 or 4 catalogs in the mail this week with lots and lots and lots of DVD's.
