shamus, I just sold my last 11 sealed dvhs 1080i tapes for more than I paid.....or rather E bay bidders bid them up higher than they listed for.
This is a dead format and people were paying up to 250.00-300.00 for certain rare movies after the studio support had stopped.
Now instead of having to deal with a s-vhs type tape, we will have a disc with better features to deal with.....Blu Ray.
I had owned 48 different movies on dvhs and every single one looked better than the dvd version, with a few like Man on Fire, X men 2 and I robot looking breathtakingly good.
A lot of these tapes had double bit rate audio on them as well, and it was easy to hear the difference in my H/T.
This format really had limited support with only about 100 major studio releases...and thats a big reason why I am supporting Blu Ray who will have by far, the greater studio support....as well as 1080p, and all those PS3 sales to back up the format..
