It's funny you mentioning the VHS tapes. I realized a few weeks ago that my "newest" kid just turned 9 years old and had never heard of a video tape. We were watching an old Columbo mystery on TV and Columbo caught some murderer by using a VHS recorder.

So, my kid asked and that led to digging out a bunch of old VHS tapes and then trying to find a way to play them. They were from 30 years ago when my other children were little. So, what should of been a quick project wound up taking days. None of the old video players worked. I yanked two of them apart, cleaned the heads and finally got one working. Hooked to our new TV via the coax antenna connection and it worked fine. When we got all done we decided it we ought to find a way to put those old family tape videos onto DVD disks. Well that turned into another project. I found a way to hook the VHS player coax output to the TV tuner-card antenna input on my computer. From there, I recorded to my hard-drive, changed file format, and then finally got it all onto DVDS.

Then my kid found a bunch of VHS Three Stooges tapes. So, now we've got to get them on DVD also and "preserve for the ages."

After that - we are onto even older technology. My kid whats to see a wire-recorder work. I've got two of them in the barn (pre-cursor to the tape recorder).
