Default Can somebody tell me why so many people request shows on DVD? I mean do they think

it's that many DVD traders out there? Especially when itcomes to a RARE show, why the hell would some one request it on DVD? I think it's ver stupid. It's hard enough finding shows PERIOD, and now people want someone who has rare shows on DVD?

Yeah they can't assume because they have a DVD recorder, everyone has one. I was lucky to find someone with eps on DVD but wasn't looking for.

Tapes are fading away, and many people only want DVDs now. I will only take VHS if it is rare and something I really want. Otherwise I won't bother.

I agree. its stupid to only want dvds. I havent got to trades for some shows i wanted because the people ONLY want DVD's...and yes its vvvvvvvvvverrry annoying. Its like...not everyone has vhs to dvd recorders. I dont mind vhs tapes as trading. If i invest in a dvd recorder and start collecting dvd's...i will also take vhs as trades cuz i would be able to convert them. People should only trade for dvd. why cant they just accept vhs and then convert them theirselves? Oh well...their LOSS!

Default Why DVDR

Simple answer on my part. I get exact copy of the master tape. With VHS there is a generation loss (quality drop of 20 to 25 %)Something has to be really rare for me to take VHS anymore. I do little trading these days because of so many newbies claim they have 9 or 10 quality that turns out to be a 5 or 6. Same problem with DVDR traders. Cramming more than 2 hours drops quality. I"ve been burned a couple times by traders claiming thier DVDrs with 6 or more hour eps is a 9.5 quality. I haven't seen anybody produce a good quality going over two hours. The only exception is using flex record mode for up to 130 minutes. Same goes for those who have transferred from vcds. Of course everything looks great on a monitor or 19 in tv. Unfortunately, I watch everything on a big screen.

i have heard from several people, that even having shows on dvd doesnt improve its quality...unless it was bought manufactured. I have seen alot more better quality shows on vhs than i have dvd. I see no difference in the 2. yes, dvds are better to have because they last longer than vhs tapes...but like whats been said...not everyone has a dvd coppier.

Then why are the vhs-only people the ones who are complaining about losing business/trades? This is at least the 2nd post along these lines in the last few months, in which time I have not read any threads from dvd people complaining about not being able to find what they want.

Default re: hnybny quality comment

I view on a 52" screen. I can tell the dif. Anyway, no matter VHS or DVDR.
Crap in, crap out, only the dvdr will be a exact copy of the crap. The VHS will be even worse.

The difference is that a growing number of the stuff on DVDs for trade have been transferred straight to dvd, eliminating VHS tapes completely. In these cases there is a definite difference in quality over tapes.
