Greetings group.
I have a Panasonic NV-HD70A vcr, the remote has been lost.

I require one that will control the G-Code function of the vcr.

Thanks,
Russell.

GB Telespares in Melbourne are Panasonic agents. If they have one in stock,
it will likely be cheap.

Thanks for the reply Rudolf.
I contacted them around 6 weeks ago.

This was their reply:-

I seem to remember seeing on a web site for a video equipment repairer
a while back , that they had second hand parts for sale.
But I do not remember who they are, and I have not been able to find
them by searching.

You can almost buy a hard drive PVR for that.
I'm surprised anyone would be bothered to fix a VCR these days.

More to the point, you can buy a new VHS HiFi recorder for that.

Difficult to play your old tapes on a hard drive PVR though.

    A *lot* of people have big collections of old tapes. That's why Beta
hung around for a very long time after most people had gone over to VHS.
    Yes, I know Beta is technically better so you don't need to tell me. :)

Why would you want to watch them again on a crappy VCR though?, which
also wears out your precious recording even more?
If it's a one-of-kind important tape then you'd be crazy not to get it
into digital format *now* before you lose it forever.

    Hey, I've been dealing with the general public for a long time. I
know how they think ... and it ain't the way you and me think! :)

Exactly, and how do you do that without a functioning VCR?

(But yes he shouldn't require a remote for that purpose)

Re: Remote for Panasonic NV-HD70A with G-Code.


The remote is needed for an elderly lady who needs a recorder that is
easy to use.

I don't think she could drive a PVR.

Same problem with my mother.
They need a remote that has an on/off switch, volume control, and
channel selector knob. Nothing else.

Plenty of companies around that specialise in transferring all your
old tapes, film, photos, slides or whatever into digital format.
And yes, I realise they need functioning VCR's to do that... :->

And you'd also realise that probably costs more in most cases than buying a
new VCR too.

MrT.



the G-Code is some wanker idea.


When the VCR first came out and you wanted to record something say, off
program 2 at 5:15

You had press one button twice, the next one 5 times, another 15 times
and at the end of all that, you were lucky you recorded anything at all

Now with G code manufactures are including all the ten buttons needed to put
in the time, if they had of done that on day one you would not need the
stupid G code

Does anyone know of a PVR that uses G-code?

In theory a digital program guide with real time updates is far more useful.
In practice the commercial channels make sure both are equally useless, so
who cares?
