That's until something inside it just popped and the display went dead. My wife was the one who saw it, and she wasn't using it for anything, it was just sitting there waiting to be used.
While this is a shame as I found the DVD/VCR combo feature quite useful and it gave me many years of good reliable service, it means I'm now on the hunt for something a bit newer to replace it. I realise Philips may not be the brand I go for for my next purchase, but keeping with the times, are there any VCR/Blu-Ray machines available in NZ? Reason I ask is I still have a large-ish library of videocassettes and I'd like the opportunity to digitalise them all one day, but for now I'd like to know if there's something newer and better that includes a VCR and Blu-Ray in the one device?
I found this one:
but I can't see it anywhere for sale.
Anyone got any suggestions? I can't be the only one out there seeking something like this, surely (although I will readily admit I may be in the minority).
