Those must be some pretty awful digital channels to make VHS look good. The point I was trying to make is that if I record something on VHS and compare it against a recording made on just about anything between say, a colour Ampex quad machine or Sony BVH-2000 C format machine or HDCAM-SR machine, or captured digitally to something with 4:2:2 colourspace or better, the VHS looks like a smeared pastel drawing that moves.
