    I'm waiting on my new JVC HR-S7800 Super VHS VCR to arrive and went to BB yesterday to purchase some Super VHS tapes. I noticed that they sell T120, T160, & even T180s. Just wondered if the old concern of long tapes sometimes causing feeding problems in VCRs is still an issue? Or, should even the T180s feed & record fine in my new machine? Thanks for any feedback.

    we use the Fuji brand T-160 S-VHS tapes all the time (or rather, we used to,) and never had a problem with them. I'd be leary of the T-180s, but that's just inherent suspicion.
    (We don't use the S-tapes anywhere near as much; we've gone to D-9 for our shooting format. 4:2:2 component digital at 50Mbits/second.)
