  • However, some tapes from this duplicator did not have any form of printing at all.
  • Tapes from this duplicator do not have anything in the vertical blanking interval.
  • One copy of The Buttercream Gang duplicated here has been known to have a code with a date and a clock on the bottom of the screen at the end, similar to what CDI Media did, sticking out from the bottom of the vertical blanking interval on their tapes. This was followed by a few extra seconds of black screen following the blank space at the tail end.
