You know if you got DVD or Blu Ray's the films would look crystal clear and have amazing colours. Plus they would sound stunning.

Just saying

I dunno.....I just wanna know why they only ruin VHS/Beta releases Stevie?

One mans justice (1995) for example is flat and contrasted way down.... I copied it to another tape (SLP mode) and its a little better,contrast not as toned down......

What about bob (1991) is digitally mastered and looks horrible....... (Wierd colours,etc)

I finally found a copy recorded off HBO sometime in the early 90s....Much better!!

Re: What Media did you last get??

I don't see how a Tape recording can be improved by copying it to another tape.

By its analogue nature every copy made from an original will be worse than the last.

Then again my Star Wars VHS tapes look terrible and always has. Colours are really faded but then after years of making tapes from their masters it would be.

Wasn't until the DVDs and Blu Rays they went back and remastered the negatives bringing the colours back to what they should be.

I dunno but im glad it does!



CONSPIRACY THEORY (1997) the colours are very light and it doesnt look very good cause of it.... I copied the official tape to another in SLP mode and the colours are richer..... (Audio level about the same)

Re: What Media did you last get??

It can't do that's the thing.

Everytime a tape is played the tape gets worn by the head making contact, and everytime said tape is copied it degrades further. That's how older tapes mostly get damaged or fail. The master tapes they used for making all the retail copies would get replaced after so many copies were made from it.

Whereas with LaserDiscs, DVDs and Blu Ray discs maintain their picture over time is that no contact is made with the disc. Unless they suffer disc rot.

Bought a re-release of The Fugees The Score on Ltd edition Orange Vinyl. Still one of the greatest albums ever IMO.
