I recently had a couple inquiries about an app I wrote to control my Sony VO-9850 U-matic deck. Unfortunately, I had lost the files in a data storage disaster, but some of the source code recently turned up. So I decided to recreate it as a dot-net application for Windows. It's free to download from my website and use. Remote VCR handles just basic transport control no editing but it will work with nearly any Sony pro VCR and lots of other equipment that follows the 9-pin (a.k.a. RS-422, P2, or BVW) protocol. The interface is pure WYSIWYG and all the controls work with the mouse or keyboard. So if you're looking for something like this, give it a try and let me know how it works out for you!
