Having just bought a new Loewe Xelos TV, my thoughts turned to replacing our very old and ropey VCR. Then I became aware of Pace Twins and the like, and doubts set in. Is a new VCR a waste of money? Presumably though, even with something like a Pace Twin you still need a half-decent VCR to archive stuff onto, and to watch your old tapes on? Advice please!
