    I was staying away from any tape-based formats going forward, but I'm leaning so far forward on this announcement I'm almost falling [​IMG]

    For those that have been on the edge of considering a D-VHS player/recorder, you can pick up a refurbished JVC 30K for under $300 at ecost.com. It also functions as a regular VHS/SVHS player.

    Yes, I just purchased one of the refurbs, but only the new 40k can play it.

    So all 10 people will be enjoying their DTS.

    I'd buy a D-VHS player if it could also play the old linear stereo tracks too.

    Nah, I'll buy a refurb 30K for $300. The refurbs are more reliable than the original retail models. They don't do DTS, but at $300, who cares?

    Oh great, so like the first-generation DVD players, the older D-VHS decks won't output DTS either? Here we go again... Glad I didn't buy an early one this time!

    No, JVC has decided not to upgrade the 30K for DTS (why it didn't have it to begin with is a mystery).

    Apparently they don't care about alienating their high-end customers. With all the problems the 30K had, you'ld think they'ld want to placate their customer-base, but then I suppose there'ld be less reason to buy a 40K. Not that I'd do that anyways...

    According to Widescreen Review it will be in French, standard Dolby Digital 5.1.
