5.14 VCR VHS




Description

This article is from the storage FAQ part1, by Rodney D. Van Meter with numerous contributions by others.

5.14 VCR VHS

    This appeared recently in the newsgroup, but I don't know anything
about it. This is the widget that takes data in one end and spits out
a video signal that you can pipe into your home VCR to use your it for
data storage. It's only $350, but, for those of us in the U.S. and
Japan, it doesn't work for NTSC VCRs.
