We have a terrible old Samsung VCR hooked up to my HT system (I cringe every time I look at it). My wife tapes tons of evening shows. I need to replace that thing. I really don't think I want to get into Tivo yet and be locked into monthly fees (or the $299 fee). I guess I need to get a new VCR - but hardly anyone seems to make them anymore. One good bet seems to be the Sony SLV-N900 (4 heads, HiFi, VCR Plus) Am I missing something? Does anyone know any other options or better players?
