Well, we're retiring the VCR I got when I went to college. I got 15 years out of that good ol' Emerson, but it's gotten cranky in it's old age. Won't record when told, won't rewind, etc.
So, we were economically stimulated and purchased a VCR/DVD Recorder. It's got a digital tuner in it so it will still work post Feb. 19. It will record to VHS as well as write once and rewriteable DVDs. We'll try it out in the next couple of days and make sure it doesn't need to go back to WalMart.
