    Doesnt anyone have a dvr or vcr anymore?

    I read alot of threads and a good many will say i was shopping or working or at Aunt Helga's house and missed the game. Then come on here and ask what happened. You look at the on screen guide for the time then push record button.

    I ran out of blank VHS tapes, and my betamax is in the shop.

    Just use the Betamax tapes in the VHS. You really have to jam them in there, though.

    Gonna be hard to get tapes for them soon. The last company that makes tapes just stopped making them.

    I have a VCR that has no internal tuner and I don't have a cable box. It's good for watching Hot Shots and Hot Shots Part Deux though.

    Sign up for one of the government $40 cards and buy a ditgital to analog converter box, about $9 at Walmart. Hook the box up to a vcr or dvd burner through rca type cables. This will work fine to keep these obsolete peices of equipment working. I had to do this the week that ISU and ui both played the ABC 2:30pm games because the Cyclones were only on ditgital here in central Iowa.
