    I've been extremely happy with my JVC-S4800 SVHS deck.
    SVHS is a must have for RPTV owners IMO. The picture quality is great compared to VHS.

    As I usually respond to these post, you are simply better off getting a S-VHS with DNR/TBC. That's Digital Noise Reduction/Time Base Control. This improves the picture quality on any video source, S-VHS or VHS. This cleans up those color bleeds you experience on S-VHS and VHS. As far as S-VHS is concerned, recording from satellite or cable and playing back with DNR, you can't tell the difference between broadcast and recording.

    Are you guys saying that a SVHS VCR will improve the look of VHS tape played through it, but that recorded on a VHS machine? Which "budget" SVHS VCR has the "right stuff" to improve my VHS tapes?
    thanks!
