For sale: Complete workflow = JVC S-VHS + TBC + capture card!
Updated Sept 2021


1 @ $3450 premium workflow (A+ JVC S-VHS, DataVideo/Cypress TBC, choice of USB capture card)
2 @ $2995 premium workflow (A- JVC S-VHS, DataVideo/Cypress TBC, choice of non-AIW** USB capture card)
1 @ $895 budget workflow (A+ JVC non-TBC S-VHS* ES15 as minimalist TBC(ish), choice of non-AIW** USB capture card)

PM if interested. :congrats:

These setups will do almost anything you need and want. VHS tapes will kneel before you! :laugh:

* Free upgrade to A+ if available. A+ is a very difficult grade to get. But I try!
** AIW is a $100 upgrade, if AIW is available.

^ These are NTSC workflows. However, for PAL users, you can get the TBC and capture card from me, and then I'll help you select the best VCR from a reputable EU market. I can also acquire, test, realign, clean, and refurb (as needed) a PAL deck, as needed.

^^ Budget workflows are B-/B+ JVCs, composite TBC or TBC(ish), and still recommended capture cards. These still do an admirable job, but whether you can use it heavily depends on your project sources.

These have been thoroughly tested, refurb'd/serviced where needed, then re-tested. Each is in perfect condition. Remember, my tests are not silly "it played a tape" or "it powers on" type nonsense you find on eBay/etc. I look for flaws with color, timing, the transport, alignment, audio, etc. This is equipment that I used, and it met my stringent expectations. Most of it is in cosmetically flawless condition.

PM me.
As of Feb 2020, my workflows are mostly built when ordered, and therefore have a 2-4 week lead time until completion/shipping. Availability of workflows also depends on availability of TBCs and VCRs, though I generally have a few of each on-hand. Workflow price ranges from $1375 (B+ gear) to $2850 (A+ premium gear).
My premium workflows/"kits" include:
- recommended VCR: A-/A+ JVC S-VHS with internal line TBC
- recommended TBC: external full-frame framesync TBC
- recommended USB capture card

Had some PMs. Yes, still available. :congrats:

More sets now gone. :read:

I started out with large stacks of hardware that filled a large walk-in closet.
Now it barely fills a cupboard.

Almost gone now. :eek:

F3LixBl0m 02-13-2018 01:29 PM

Do you have any left?

Photoartist69 02-15-2018 10:23 AM

Are these still available?

lordsmurf 02-15-2018 10:35 AM


I need re-test some gear in workflows, doing that now. When it comes to workflows, not everything likes everything. Some cards dislike some TBCs/VCRs, some VCRs hate some TBCs/cards, etc. It requires lots of testing. It's not just random gear thrown together.

I have a few JVC VCRs left, and a refurb'd AG-1980P that I've decided to part with.
A couple of capture cards.
But on the TBC front, a new-in-box TBC-1000, and a few others.
My capture systems are all gone now.

I can maybe make one more workflow for $775, but the rest would be made up of some premium hardware (like the 1980), and it'll be into the $900s or more depending on what you get.

Right now, I'm trying to repair/refurb a pair of JVC SRs. I've been putting it off for years, but now it's time.

-- Update --

I've packaged together two final kits in a workflow.

And that'll be it for now. No more. Get it while available! :tiphat:

ExUSAF_AV 02-22-2018 10:30 AM

What comprises the kits you have remaining and do you have any stand-alone TBCs? The primary tapes I want to transfer are the SVHS tapes from the 90's that I made with the JVC GFS-550 SVHS camcorder. It took a full-sized tape and recorded SP. Any chance the camcorder could serve as the S-video source? The best I have outside those is my JVC HRS 8000U deck but, according to other posts on this site, it does not have a built in TBC. I doubt if the camcorder does either, but I'm not sure. I do have an ATI All-In-Wonder 7500 capture card that I might be able to rig with Windows 2000 or XP for capture if you have no capture cards left.

lordsmurf 02-22-2018 10:34 AM

Yes, PM me. :congrats:

mike4matt 02-27-2018 01:52 PM

What workflows do you have available? I don't need a capture card...just VCR and TBC

lordsmurf 03-07-2018 03:48 AM

Note: The $775 workflow will not be split up.

ExUSAF_AV 03-07-2018 11:38 AM

What exactly is in the $775 workflow? Is it the JVC SR Professional S-VHS or the Panasonic AG-1980P?; TBC-1000 or something else?; AIW card or USB 600?

Let's continue this in PM. :wink2:

My AG-1980P are gone, never even put those on the marketplace. I withdrew another, decided not to sell for fear I'd never see another on in that condition should I want/need another one someday.

TBC is another model.

Not AIW AGP/PCI/PCIe/USB, either ATI 600 USB, or a specific Tevion (not any Tevion).

F3LixBl0m 04-14-2018 12:19 PM

Do you have any pal-workflows avaiable for sale?

lordsmurf 05-28-2018 06:46 PM

Still no PAL, having hard time repairing the VCR... :depressed:

... but still a couple NTSC left. :D

My USB ATI 600 capture cards will for sure work for PAL.
And then most of my TBCs will as well. All DataVideo, all Cypress.
Just no PAL VCR. However, if you get anything of mine, I'll help you track down a good unit!

F3LixBl0m 05-31-2018 05:23 AM

How much for a capture card and tbc that both works for PAL? I already have a PAL Vhs called JVC Super VHS ET S6700. Do you have anything that Will work smoothly together with that? Any thoughts about the VCR I have?

For a PAL-capable TBC, maybe. My last DataVideo is pending at the moment. I have a few more TBCs to refurb, but not sure how long before those are available.

PM me. :)

Threadjack cleaning...

F3LixBl0m's question about the VCR, and related replies by Bogilein and myself, was moved here:

ExUSAF_AV's question about Hi8 workflows was moved here:

lordsmurf 04-09-2019 03:27 AM

I have enough pieces to build a few more workflows. My previous workflows had been sold out for 11 months, so gets these while I have them.

lordsmurf 08-05-2019 03:45 AM

Updated the list. :2cents:

After this year, I will likely only keep 2-3 pre-made workflows at any time. Anything else would be custom built. Probably no more individual VCRs and capture cards. Just TBCs and workflows. Still undecided at the moment. I can make a lot of nice workflows right now, so if you're on the fence about it, now is the time to act.

Sleeper XPL 08-21-2019 05:01 PM

Don't need the VCR, what is the cost for a good TBC + Capture setup?

jridge16 11-06-2019 12:00 AM

Have anything at this time?

Sleeper XPL 11-15-2019 05:29 PM

Pinnacle 710 with windows 10 64bit Virtual Dub
Do you have a Pinnacle 710, and will this work with the ComWorld TBC that you sold me in Sept.

I'm using Virtual Dub and couldn't get this set up to work with Windows XP and the ATI AIW USB.

I can go back to Win 7-64 bit if this is a more stable platform. How much for the Pinnacle, and is it revision 1.0 or 2.0. What is the difference?

Just having problems with set up

Thank you!
