Composite output might work. Why not give it a try? With VOD around I'm not sure why I'd want to put a Showtime program on a VHS tape in the first place.
During the free previews you can tape premium channels to watch later. VOD makes it even easier taping movies & stuff for your archives.
Yea, I know it sounds cheap, but my last day of work was 6/2008. Oh, and I have SVHS (well, JVC's Super VHS ET).
