I know its old hat but I want to buy the above. Must have 2 scart outputs and aerial in and out lead. Please suggest an outlet where I could buy one, preferably new not second hand. Thanks David

1. Mono Sound, 2 Heads, 2 Scart. Not Bad

2. NiCam Stereo, 6 Heads, 2 Scart. Better

Not sure if you wish to just buy one to replay your video tapes or to record TV programmes, but you should still be able to do the latter via a Freeview set top box.

The reason is that the box coverts the digital transmissions back to analogue which is, of course, the reason why analogue televisions can still be used in the future.

However, you may have to use a VCR channel other than the normal choice - my 15-year-old Mitsubishi Nicam VCR has to be used with L1 or L2, one of the then satellite channels when I first acquired it, in conjunction with a Freeview STB.

The LG seens to be one of the few still around as provided in MCE2K5's link, but I would probably avoid the Funai models...:-)

Any other stores that sell VCRs, my VCR which has a random fault is a Mitsubishi Nicam - snap with Stuartli, but I need 2 scarts out and the Argos one has only 1 scart. Thanks David

My local Asda has a selection of video recorders/Video + DVD units, etc in store - never looked at them re:scart sockets though but you can return if unhappy with he goods .....

With all due respects, the LG LV880 has two Scart sockets.

I stand corrected the LG does have 2 scarts. Snags - no video plus and no search to find start of recording, not in stock.
Thanks for your replies.
Does ASDA have a web page for the VCRs someone metioned?
Thanks David
