How do I record on VHS a programme with subtitles(usually in the teletext mode). I find the text is never recorded.

I'm not sure that you can, as the teletext is overlaid by the TV, whether you could try it from the scart out on the TV is another matter, but I don't think that it would work.

I don't think VHS has enough definition to record teletext - it didn't work properly when I tried a few years go. Possible an S-VHS recorder might although I haven't got one to try.

Yes - a Super VHS VCR at 500 lines will recorder the Teletext lines at the top and allow you to watch them on play back.

You can still find them - JVC did a cheap recorder - VHS is a dying format I'm afraid.

S-VHS usually forms the video half of a video/dvd combi. They are still being produced.
