I will just answer this new part added; @rock4us2 wrote: Coupled with its short recording times of the tapes and the better Timer on VCRs, Betamax was left in the dust. Not related to your first statement, but yes the tapes were shorter for a short while until Betamax came out with longer tapes and an extended record / playback system. It will have had an affect, but not the main defeating one. Exaggerated marketing has caused quite a few less able products to grab the market, although in this case there wasn't a big difference so people didn't really lose out. As discussed before, "Better Timer on VCR's" remains nonsense in respect of VHS being better than Betamax, but from your wording it looks like they were just referring to ALL VCR's having improved timers. Not going to look, but to me that says it's just about Betamax naturally not yet able to take advantage of the longer timer options before the longer tapes and modes made it practical. Certainly the term "VCR" (a general Video Cassette Recorder) does not mean "VHS" (the brand type). So it looks like a misunderstanding of meaning is all this is about... Last from me - a decoder with an EPG is too different and improved from a VCR so your justification is not likely to sway MC. How do I know? A long term understanding of the industry and its workings and what goes on. That's not intimidation.
