The following table shows tape counter numbers for various times
for both T-120 and T-160 VHS tapes. These numbers were derived
by recording a digital clock on to both a T-120 and a T-160 tape
at the EP speed and observing the counter at fifteen minute
intervals on playback. The machine used was a Sharp VC-A610;
however, the numbers also apply to a Zenith VRD 100 and an RCA
VMT390. The counters may be different in other of VCRs,
particularly older models.
