They still fetch a good price: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SONY-BETA...oAAOSwe0tcaVOw

But the one I had in mind was this one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sony-SL-F...0AAOSwxBNc0GKl
Looking at that sony tuner/recorder has brought back some long forgotten memories. I spent a few years in the 90s in music/film production, we had that set up and it got a lot of use. Plus, whenever we stayed in a hotel and the TV had user functionality enabled, we'd plumb it in and watch whatever we had with us instead of the dire TV offerings. Hadn't thought about that for years, it's funny what brings memories back.
