    I think it's great recording YT clips of old TV shows onto tape - just like 30 years ago!

    Even as recently as a few years ago, I used to do the same thing with a tape recorder next to the computer and recorded the sound from clips from YouTube onto tape.
    I must admit I am a bit shocked by the computer/youtube example!

    But yes that was EXACTLY what I meant.

    OMG yes I did too! When I was a kid and we didn't have a VCR until I became a late teenager, so when we would have special cartoon programs on I would park my tape recorder in front of the tube (worked surprisingly well as the speakers of the massive floor model were close to the ground) and make a recording of the audio. I actually still have a few with my brother laughing in the background, it's kind of like a nostalgic laugh track.

    Also I would sit next to the recorder while watching and actually pause the recording to skip commercials so I was then all proud to re-listen to the program "advert free" afterwards. Kind of like TiVo commercial skip for the 80's I guess LOL

    recording TV on audio cassette / tape reel

    My parents never had a video because they were not very TV oriented. Unlike me. So in my desperation, I just recorded stuff on audio cassette. Anyone do the same?
