Good job, but you might want to create a new thread for this, as this is for D-VHS covers, and folks looking for alternative HD-DVD covers will not be looking here.

In celebrating broadcast of Star Wars on Cinemax HD, here is my very first effort at a custom D-VHS cover.

Wow, what a great hobby for those with talent. You know, there might be a market for custom DVD covers. Imagine, DVD, HD, BD covers with common spines that look like a book collection, rather than a patchwork quilt on your shelves. Also an Ex Libris box that you can sign so your relatives know they don't own it!!

Hmm. Forgot. You would be sued PDQ by the studios. Let's keep this low profile. Jack Valenti is still alive.

I'll continue to make coverart no matter the format. I've done so for every recordable audio/video formats I've own and I've owned a lot. From 8track, compact audio cassete, MiniDisc, U-matic, BETACAM... Heck I even made some for my 35mm film cans. but sharing them maybe a problem...

umm, right picklesque. D-VHS is a very dead old format, it's over and on it's last blank page of the book. I'm still enjoying D-VHS to this day, but less so because of BD and HD DVD.

people like you.....that's why everyone watches movies on a disc now. VHS was always the best way to go...easy simple and unmatchable quality. discs scratch easily and are from the devil himself. shame on all of you

?? I didnt know I had that much of an influence. I guess buying every D-VHS release and 3 different deck was a bad thing for the format. Also didnt prerecorded movies on disc come out way before movies on tape? I personally dont care what format movies come in tape, disc, streaming, even film. I watch any way I can as long as compaines keep releasing content no matter the container. Example I still buy lots of VHS tapes to this day.

d-vhs has recently caught my eye as a good way to record my favorite show 24 off fox. Are these players any good for recording hd material and where the heck can i find one?

Less and less, but I still just make them for myself. Some are my own, and mostly not too great to low budget crappy unreleased movies that have no big or no studio backing. Previously when this thread was active I found trying to share well known titles too difficult. Too many people with different sized cases.

Just watched True Lies again on D-VHS and was reminded how thrilling it was 10 years ago to see commercial movies in HD on D-Theater. TL actually looks quite good in HD on D-VHS. It is one of 5 D-VHS movies I have remaining. Can not bring myself to sell the machine because some content is just not available on BD.

I know this is an old thread, but if anyone is interested, I am selling my entire DTheater collection via eBay. tongue.gif

I have a JVC HM-DH40000U DTheater deck with ALL the original packing material and it features less than 20 hours of total use.

I am also selling roughly one dozen DTheater titles that are ALL NEW and SEALED, save for True Lies (watched four times and never stopped during playback or rewind).

Search for 'Segaboy' on eBay.

Cheers!

Brian

Wow, there's a blast from the past. I know there was a dearth of HD content, but what was JVC thinking launching an outdated tape format with a HD band-aid.

But I guess the joke is on me.... still no True Lies BD. eek.gif


Here's a great idea... bring back the 12-in LD format with a 4K band-aid. [Looks around and sees a bunch of LD fans thinking of the possibilties.... coverart, gatefold packages, lossless 11.2 audio, Kevin Smith saying eff Blu-ray] tongue.gif

D-VHS was introduced in 1998, D-Theater came later. Just look at what a large hard drive cost and you can see why tape was very attractive price wise as in 24 GB tape was < $10.00 vs several hundred for a similar size hard drive. 40 GB hard drives were still ≈ $150.00 in 2004.

I still have 3 decks and my brother has 1. I used it to bridge the gap. I have a lot of HD recordings of not only movies, but sports events and music concerts. I watched a movie on it the other night and I still record with it from time to time for sports, concerts, and content not on BD. On my setup, the average person will not know the difference between my tape that is playing or any other HD content.
