    I got a few of them in the closet. Would you be interested in buying them and my Pioneer LD Player.

      I don't object at all to your idea (and it wouldn't matter if I did). I think it's a good idea for the people who did hang on to their VHS/Laserdisc/Beta collections to be able to run them through the Disc to Digital Program. Will it happen? I don't know. Could it be profitable to Vudu? Like every other customer here, I have no idea. I won't pretend to suppose it may be. You've given the ball to Vudu. Now let them run with it. Again, I think you have a fine idea, even though I don't have a VHS movie collection.

      I spent an hour and a half in WalMart today converting the last of the DVDs I wish to convert. After an hour of the associates trying to pull up my account, I suggested that maybe they try with just my email address, and not my phone number. That worked. Funny it took me to tell them that.

        Email address is all Walmart needs to access your Vudu account. Andt wo good eyes is all they need to verify that you own the movies on your list. A VHS case or laserdisk cover can be seen just as easily as a DVD or Blueray cover. That is all I am saying and all I am asking for.

          I agree that VHS is "dead", however we still have some and the kids still watch VHS from time to time. I am wanting to get them on Vudu and I don't want to have to buy the movies again. I am not asking for anything special to be done regarding VHS, just to allow them to be accepted during the Walmart authentication process and nothing more.

          What I am thinking is that we should to be able to build our list of movies to convert to digital and include some VHS titles and titles that are in our Video Library on Amazon and present proof to the Walmart photo lab that we do indeed own a copy of these "movies" with any discrimination concerning media. The only thing that I see would change is that Walmart would allow VHS tapes to be presented as proof or would allow us to log into our Amazon account and show them a title in our video library.

          I agree that I probably will not see this happen. I also agree that if Amazon ever implements UV that I should see those titles that are on UV show up on Vudu. But because this seems like such a simple thing, I thought I would post it to see if I could get some Vudu responses. Looking at the bigger picture and remember that I am only one person and Vudu has many customers who might want to be able to do this. With that in mind, it also seems to me that it would benefit Vudu by allowing everyone to pull most of their collection over to their site. The more time we spend on their site the more likely we are to buy new releases from them instead of other sites that we frequently visit due to having part of our collection on other sites.
          Thanks.

          I thought every D2D title was also UV? I haven't checked but D2D is tied to UV so I thought this was the case.

          It sounds reasonable and I have no issue with a VHS to UV offering, however if they did and considering how old VHS are, the cost would be great. Perhaps $10 to SD and $15 to HD, it would surely be a higher fee and thus you might as well just buy the DVD or BD.

          Amazon will implement UV in 2013, and most if not all of your digitally purchased movies will be extended as UV and attached to your UV locker and thus Vudu too.

              There is a local store that still buys vhs tapes if you can believe that. You get around 50 cents to 1.00 for them and more for Disney movies. If Disney was on board I could see people wanting to use their vhs tapes considering the cost of Disney movies.

              On a side note did you ever contact amazon and ask for a refund on your movies and state your reasoning is their movies are not ultraviolet? I wonder what kind of response you would get from them.

                I'll take a stab at that: they'd say, "Forget it!"

                  So firstly everyone knows that I hate to agree with Jeff on anything.... But VHS and everything before it is a dead media... And earnestly I am not even certain it would be considered the same content. I imagine that pre-DVD content would have to have been remastered for digital distribution...

                  but that aside... I have maybe five hundred VHS tapes in boxes in my garrage... and I still don't think its a worthwhile idea...

                  I think you should consider the fact that the technology is dead as being a kind of expiration date... and a Dead to Digital program would be the technological equivant of digging up a grave for organ transplant.

                    No, not all movies available for D2D are UV and not all UV titles are available for D2D or available on Vudu (the last Harry Potter movie is one example of this).

                      Ummm acctually thats incorrect ALL D2D movies are UV... not all of them are being sold UV through Vudu or available for purchase at all through Vudu but they are all UV.

                        Well this should please you. I disagree with your premise. The whole D2D has nothing to do with remastering. Whether you own a movie on VHS has nothing to do with a movie needing remastering. It either is, or it isn't available on D2D. The transaction doesn't reencode your media, I'm sure you know that. Some people may have old VHS movies that are available titles for D2D.

                        And for the record, I don't decide to disagree just for the sake of debating. I either agree with what is said, or I don't. There is nothing wrong with having a difference of opinion.

                          Well aware of that... lol almost insulted that you would think I needed to be told...

                          But the content available on Vudu or well anywhere is going to be encoded from a digital source.

                          And the argument could be made that that the digital form of the media and the analog form are fundamentally different.

                          As for how different that obviously depends on when/how the movie was made and when/in what formats it was released on home video ect

                            Honestly though... I don't really care... I have maybe 500 VHS tapes rotting in my garage and I still think that VHS to Digital is akin to grave robbing... society already went through the 5 stages of greif when VHS died so why go back to the "bargaining" stage now.

                              Not if you ask my wife or my parents.

                              I can't imagine, as Jake said, that there would be too many people who stopped buying movies when VHS was mainstream (and never bought DVDs) would have a desire to go D2D. But if they come to allow it because a few people requested it, then yay for us!
