I bought an original green AVT-8710 TBC from lordsmurf in april last year to help digitize my VHS tapes. This process if now complete. Since there is only a limited amount of these devices still out there I think it is time that this unit finds a new home.

Note: This late production unit has a quirk where it hates JVC menus. Hence the "AG1980 only" sticker.

Price is $1540 and I am willing to send all over the world.

Some freezing, sort of, but not entirely.

It was an odd latter production green TBC, one I'd not seen before, nor since. It's not a black AVT-8710, it doesn't have the same ghosting or frame sticking issue. It's similar to the flawed BVTBC, but nowhere near as bad (as BV has issues at stop/start and pause, not just JVC menus). At first, I thought some shyster had put a black AVT-8710 in a green case, but that wasn't it.

The JVC menus are simply unstable. That's because JVC menus are not 100% compliant NTSC or PAL. While that usually means the TBC will be unstable elsewhere, that just wasn't the case here. I ran long burn-in tests on this unit, expecting to see a flaw somewhere, but did not. I tried to make it choke and gag on VHS footage, like a black AVT-8710 does, but it chugged along like a green unit.

It was flawless on my then-working AG-1980, and likely other Panasonics.

Thank you for the answer, lordsmurf.

For my part, I can say that the TBC worked fine while capturing some thirty VHS tapes with my Blaupunkt RTV 966 VCR (rebranded Panasonic NV-HS 1000) and AJA Kona LSe card.
