I'm not a member over there so I'll add my comments here and folks can take them there if they wish. Three sets of tapes is 1.5% of our total licensed production capability of 200 copies (of which we don't have very many Series One titles left available). I don't think that is a particularly significant fraction in terms of being able to determine why the tapes are being sold. The simple fact is the economic crunch affected a lot of folks - though we seem to be coming out of that and subscriptions are really up lately. Earlier in the year we had very remorseful calls from a few Charter subscribers who were in financial straights and who could not renew for Series Two, and I can imagine those same folks might be the ones who were selling their Series One tapes.
