Hi all, Just after some advice please!? I have got a Sony VCR that I bought about 4/5 years ago and the damn thing has gone on the blink. I have taken it to a repair shop for a quote and the dude in the shop has told me the heads have gone and the only way to fix it is to replace them and the "drum assembly?" as they are one part. I paid about £350 for the VCR(top of the range back then) new but the repair quoted is £170!! I am now considering whether to get it repaired or whether to make the giant leap into another recording format such as DVD or HD? The guy in the shop has told me to steer clear of DVD recorders for a while because the formats are still being messed with? Is this true? Should I make the leap or get my old faithful repaired as tapes are cheap and I have got a DVD player already? Very confused and concious of paying over the odds for a repair when a better and cheaper alternative is available. Thanks in advance.
