    Everyone's nightmare -- the BSOD

    So I'm watching one of my favourites videos (Friends in this case, I have all 42 tapes!)... the dreaded BSOD when the tape runs out!!
    I swear to drunk I'm not God.

    lol... well on the bought friends tapes which have 4 episodes on each one... after the 4th one the colour of the screen goes bright blue... it is almost as annoying as the a win BSOD cos it means I'm gonna have to get up, rewind the tape, find a new tape, replace the tapes and sit back down again...

    Poor weird...

    Would you like iTec to come over and change the tape for you? Maybe you could just have multiple VCR's, and just watch the tapes in order. Then you wouldn't have to get up at all until the last episode was done.

    You have to get up! What once every hour and a half?

    Man that must be a struggle

    ok man, here is what you do, go out and buy a bunch of 8 hour blank tapes and a second VCR. Set it up so you can record your friends tapes onto the blank tapes, record as many as you can on each tape. now you only have to get up every 8 hours to change the tape.
    i know that may still be hard on you.. but since you now have 2 VCR's you may be able to rig it so you only have to get up every 16 hours...

    tada

    Well I do have 2 VCR's actually, but I could never find the box (and I couldn't be bothered to make one) which removes the macrovision. And without it copied VHS is just plain annoying. Although I do quite fancy having iTec as my tape changing *****. Don't suppose you cook as well do you?
