indeed, it is this that i hope there is more information about.
surely there is some study being done about this issue. i've not read
anything about dropout recovery (if possible), nor if there is
anything such as SSS in the DATworld.
i've heard from many people who, when trying to play their tapes back
on the very same machines they were recorded on, have lots more
errors, i.e. dropouts, muting, and so forth. these machines hadn't
been serviced, so the alignment was the same. it is this issue that
is of most concern. this would affect video tapes made with the same
process, so possibly the AMIA members also on this list might
comment? i could post a query there too...
