Cool Troydog, interesting that rental only tapes had the ability to, not be rewound by the user, the first of a one time play system that I know of. I think VHS may have tried a similar thing, but I'm not sure and I think DVDs(maybe Divx??) also had that option to only be played once. Lots of other features on that Cartrivision that were later adopted by Beta and then VHS recorders, I was surprised it even had Stereo, something only much later adopted for Beta and VHS.
Speaking of old TV/recorder options, your link is the first but don't forget the Sony Betamax that started it all, a 19" Trinatron color TV with built in Betamax(BI only) it wasn't until the year after(76' I believe) that Sony made a recorder only Beta deck, don't think VHS ever had a TV/VCR unit.
