1)Do any of these units, US or Japanese, have timers such that you can truly timeshift?
2)How do the US machines differ from the Japanese ones?
I have tried to find answers to these questions by reading prior threads yet have come up empty.

1) The Japanese HR-W5 has a timer so that you can timeshift since it was sold as a consumer WVHS deck.

2) The US WVHS machines were really sold to the professional/semi-professional market and have features like a RGBHV output and a RS-422a interface.

Please email me at miltyumi@k8.dion.ne.jp if you want to discuss this in greater detail esp. the availability of refurbished machines

Not having a timer I've found to be only a little inconvenient since it accepts any standard IR universal remote, including the unattended timer type.

Juts also add that my W-VHS/HD100 combo is for sale in the avs classifieds (sorry for that plug).
