    I have no VCR but I have a lot of VHS and BETA tapes that I want to watch in my system. Well, to be honest, Im not worried about the BETA movies and tapes.

    I have a HK AVR320 receiver. I already have a DVD player so a VHS/DVD combo player is not what Im looking for.

    I want to buy a VHS player so, which brands should I be looking for? Which features are important in a VCR?

    Thank you very much.

    Panasonic seems to have a solid build, with fewer belts to break than most.

    I certainly wouldn't invest much in a dead format. You should be able to find a Hifi Panasonic 4head with real-time counter for under $75USD.

    Others may disagree, but I see a lot of people with systems trying to run SVideo through the receiver - and the lone component that still puts out composite: the VCR

    SVHS VCR's offer SVideo output. Something to look for.

    True, but if I were looking for an SVideo recording format, I would go with recordable DVD and/or a PVR. With all the advantages of non-linear formats, I can't see investing in a SVHS deck.

    YMMV.
