This appeared recently in the newsgroup, but I don't know anything
about it. This is the widget that takes data in one end and spits out
a video signal that you can pipe into your home VCR to use your it for
data storage. It's only $350, but, for those of us in the U.S. and
Japan, it doesn't work for NTSC VCRs.

weeks money back policy), please send all inquiries to my e-mail
address ats@rctl.msk.su. (Michael V. Kuzmin, ats@rctl.msk.su, 4/95)

And more recently:

Check out a company call Cybernetics in Yorktown, Virginia.  They 
put Sony VCR drives in their own enclosures for backup devices.
