    Hi all,

    I wanted a new VCR this weekend as I was sick of my old Toshiba NICAM VCR looking a bit poor on most tapes so I went and bought a JVC HR6700EK from Comet for £200.

    First impressions were good. The VCR looks the biz in Champagne gold and I was lucky as it was the last boxed (new) one they had.

    I tried to plug my nice Tech-Link RF cable into the RF out of the video and.....damn it would'nt go....pushed a bit harder and it slowly went on taking a few fine slivers of metal off the socket then the plug broke.

    I took the plug out (eventually) and cleaned the socket and the edges of the socket with contact cleaner and tried the supplied lead with it. It was still very tight but finally went on.

    Now I've come across this before on a couple of Toshiba videos. I've since made my own RF cable using high quality Profigold connectors which fit a bit better.

    Now is this a common thing and will it cause any problems?

    The loopthrough picture seems fine though. The machine is a bit noisy when playing or recording (about 3 times as loud as my old quiet Tosh). But my parents cheap Daewoo Nicam VCR is just as noisy (but only £90).

    What do you guys think?

    The paranoia is setting in fast!!!!
