How do I interface my rotary phone with my VHS player?

Interface to do what, exactly? Remote control? Play or record via your phone? For controls: you would probably need to engineer a proprietary interface to your VHS player unless it already has a standard control interface (e.g., RS-485). For play and record you'd only need to adapt the mic and earpiece to the necessary voltage and impedance for the VHS.

1. Place phone on VHS
2. Sledge hammer that bad boy right down in there
3. Enjoy advanced video calling featuresSource(s): I am an expert.

To be honest, what do you want your phone to do with your VHS player?
It is like saying, "How do I interface my phone with my cat or dog?" OK? and do what, please?

You need an RS232 and a Sinclair C5.

First, get a time machine set to yesteryear....just who are you calling with a rotary phone, Gladys the telephone operator ??

Doesn't work with VHS, only Beta.
You have to find or attempt to make an IUE779 interface and the appropriate phone connection.

I am sure with your intelligence you can figure that out by yourself.

Start with a pulse counter.
Each different number dialled represents one of ten functions.
Design a circuit to Either convert the counted pulses to
an infrared command that the VCR can recognise
Or to trigger a relay contact closure which can be connected
across (in parallel with) a front-panel tactile switch.
It seems complicated, but it could be done quite readily
by someone with enough knowledge.
Philco offered radios with a dial-type wireless remote control in 1939.
