    S-VHS ET Technology/ HRS3902U

    I just bought my last VCR (I hope). It is a JVC HRS3902U. It is a S-VHS model. I have never has a S-VHS VCR before. I understand and have seen the picture difference recording in S-VHS mode on S-VHS tape, but has anyone played around with the S-VHS ET technology that allows you to record almost S-VHS quality on high grade regular VHS tapes?

    I have played with it a little. In SP mode the S-VHS ET picture does seem better that standard SP. In EP mode S-VHS ET looks worse! My theory is that the S-VHS ET is emphasizing the poor picure quality of EP and in affect amplifying it. I am using TDK 120 EHG VHS cassettes which are about the best VHS cassettes I can find around here. Circuit CIty sells a two pack of JVC S-VHS cassettes for $12.99. Has anyone had any experience the these tapes. I usually stick to the higher end TDK or Fuji's.

    Please feel free to put you two cents in...Thanks

    You will see the difference with different tape quality. Before they came out of ET, I used to drill a hole in the regular tape cassette to fool it. Although using regular tape in S-VHS mode is better than regular mode, the S-VHS tape is still better due to the finer particles. I would bet the D-VHS tape has even finer particles than S-VHS.
