You're looking for retired VHS movies that perhaps people replaced with DVD's?? Just to clarify.......would beat tossing 'em!

No DVHS was the first High Definition Video recorder. It used tapes and along with a DISH 5000 receiver with HD adapter you could record on the tapes. :)

Of course programmers had a bird that people could record their HD stuff with no copy protection so it forced DISH to move to 8PSK faster then it wasnted to for its HD streaming which in turn made the DISH 5000 a door stop as it could not decode the 8PSK signals.

I remember the box, but didn't know about it being a driver for 8PSK. Thanks for the info.

It did record a digital stream, but not HD.
