I fell for MD BIGTIME.Minidisc. I still have a Panasonic hifi in my shed that plays them.
Sure, happy to elaborate.I'm not sure if you are taking the piss out of my post, or I've missed a joke. Care to elaborate?
I don't think video+ was essential, but do acknowledge that both Grundig and Philips V2000 model timer setting methods were quirky. My S-VHS decks (Grundig, and JVC with optional adapter) had Teletext timer setting (and Teletext+PDC on my later Philips one).Video 2000
I eventually had to bite the bullet and get a VHS eventually mostly because of video+ recording codes.
The Wankel engine used by Mazda didn't disappear as long ago as your link would suggest (1975). The RX-8 is still commonplace on the road today and Mazda only stopped production of that model in 2012. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Mazda brought it back (again) for a hybrid car in the future.
