The tape position display shows an onscreen icon that depicts your current position on the tape, giving you an accurate indication of the remaining tape length. This feature can be accessed when a tape is inserted for recording or is already in the process of recording.

With four heads, a VCR can perform special effects like slow motion and freeze frame, and it is optimized for recording and playback in both the SP (two-hour) and SLP (six-hour) modes. You'll also get a better picture from rental videos with a four-head VCR.
