Default Re: Ferguson 3V55 Videostar VCR

Because these machines didn't thread the tape during FF/REW, it wasn't possible to implement a tape counter that measures pulses from the control track. Sony did that in some models like the SL-C30 since on most Betamax machines the tape stays threaded in all modes, but they didn't feature a real-time counter.
