    Hello,

    My new Hitachi 42PD3000 Plasma TV remote (CLE-952A) has buttons to control a VCR / DVD.

    I'd like to use it to control a VCR but in looking for a suitable Hitachi VCR (ie model VT-FX240E) but it seems no one is stocking Hitachi VCR's any longer :(

    So I have 2 questions ?

    1 - anyone know anywhere that has stock of an Hitachi VCR :) Have tried quite a few online sites but only http://www.digitaldirectuk.com lists them and I have no way of knowing if they're in stock as I can't find an telephone no or email address to ask, and i'm not going to order without knowing they have them.

    2 - my Hitachi manual says that there are compatible systems to the Viewlink:

    Panasonic - QLink
    Phillips - Easy Link
    Grundig - Megalogic
    Sony - Smartlink
    JVC - T-V Link

    What VCR would anyone recommend from these manufacturers that would give me 100% compatibility?

    Many thanks for your help,

    Nik
