VCR+ codes

We stopped running the VCR+ codes in our weekly TV guide this week. Short explanation: Not many people use those anymore and the VCR+ people charge us to print them (which seems stupid).

Anyway, if you or someone you know still uses the system, you can generate codes yourself with this handy dandy applet:

A reader I was working through this with told me those numbers seemed to work (although you need the correct cable conversion for whichever channel you're punching up), so let me know if anyone has a problem with them.

Ummm, charge for using the vcr+ codes? That makes no sense at all.

And, speaking about the weekly TV guide......MAKE THE DANGED THING SMALLER AGAIN. I absolutely despise the current size and format of that thing! ARRRGGGGHHHHH!!!

VCR+ codes still work if you are recording to a DVD personal recorder.
