I'm going to buy a new VCR. This is so i'll have two VCR's, so I can record sports programmes from T.V and SKY and send them to my cousin in Australia but also keep a copy of the recording for myself. I don't want to be spending to much, £180 at the most I think. Could someone recommend a good VCR for the job in this price range please. I've been looking at the SONY SLV-SE710 would this make decent quality tapes? I've been told that a 6 head machine would be better for me but this SONY machine has a 'reality generator' i'm not sure exactly what this does. I was thinking though.... I have some old sports tapes that i'd like to send him but the quality is a little poor becasue of their age. Would this feature help when making a copy of these old tapes for him? Or is there another VCR better suited for the job? Any help or advice would be great, Thanks.
