There might be but if there is most likely only going to be on some very expensive JVC D-VHS decks which was pretty much a dead format.

Recoding HD to standard VHS or S-VHS is not going to get you anywhere over regular VHS commercial tape. The resolution is limited even compared to DVD. Plus you're going to have issues with widescreen if you want to take advantage of the full resolution of VHS. You'd have to output the source as 3:4 so you're not recording black bars, adjust with the TV during playback.

VHS - 240 lines
S-VHS - 400 lines
D-VHS - Same as DVD however superior to DVD with the higher bitrate.
DVD - 480
Blu Ray - 1080

T-150 is a longer tape, so it records longer. With audio cassettes, there was concern that longer tapes (C-120) would cause stress on the motor of the cassette player. I don't know if this is really a thing, but it might be worth considering (or researching) since you presumably can't go out and buy another VCR if yours breaks down.

i once had a "On Scene" episode where Coast Guard Air Station Miami intercepted a aircraft carrying drugs and a movie from ABC in SLP "On Scene" was 30 minutes while the movie was 2 hours how much recording time would have i had left?

Yes well what I mean is THE ORIGINAL ANALOG MASTER transferred to the tape....

Like the movie SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT I have (1977) its the original analog master

I had a 1990 release before and it did not look as good... (Wasnt the original master)

taping a show like "On Scene" or a football or basketball game on a satellite feed looked a lot better than antenna because of clearer picture quality in fact i got a master like picture and sound

I was actually just thinking in terms of playing back a commercial VHS tape, not really recording.

Recording or playback, it is what it is which is low resolution video format. If you wanted it to look better on large screen TV you'd have to use an upscaler like they do with DVD. Keep in mind upscaling does not add detail too video. Typical scaling methods in the past usually produced a soft picture. What a good upscaler does is examine the frame for contrasting edges and preserves them keeping them nice and sharp preventing that soft appearance.
