VCube Crash in Forward Wind

Goldcrest recently reported that the VCube would crash when in forward wind. This was traced to the RM-6 converting the Forward Wind command from the DFC to a forward shuttle command. This is necessary with tape based video machines as there is often no picture in Fast Forward.

To correct change the option in the RM-6 as follows

Setup / Root / Ext/ Menu 097 - Rmt FWD/RWD Cmds to Video Mcn
Set to 0=Normal

The Default is 1=Convert to Shuttle
