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

Available:

1 @ $3450 premium workflow (A+ JVC S-VHS, DataVideo/Cypress TBC, choice of USB capture card)
1 @ $2995 premium workflow (A- JVC S-VHS, DataVideo/Cypress TBC, choice of non-AIW** USB capture card)
0 @ $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

lordsmurf 12-24-2017 01:53 AM

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

-- updated --

More sets now gone. :read:

-- updated --

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

Probably.

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

Updated.
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?

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. :)

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

Lord-
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!

WinXP and Win7 are always most stable for capturing.
Vista, 8 and 10 all throw up roadblocks to a smooth trouble-free experience. This specific cards can work in Win8/10, but it's still not ideal.

lordsmurf 01-12-2020 02:26 AM

Very few workflows are now remaining. :2cents:

What is the status of my workflow without the VCR (that is compatible with AG1980)?

joshchiodo 04-29-2020 08:51 PM

Hey there lordsmurf,

I'm based in Australia and looking at setting up a conversion system. I have a Blackmagic Video card which enables me to input video feeds through to my computer and into software - I'm just looking for reputable markets to grab a quality PAL VCR. Do you have any suggestions?

I would absolutely purchase a workflow from yourself, but I'm only missing a PAL VCR which you unfortunately do not sell!

Thanks,

JC

OldBrutus 06-17-2020 02:34 AM

I have a jvc S9911 Ive had for a while. using cheap vidbox usb capture and not pleased with the results. The JVC is starting to break down on me as well, so Im looking at repair or replacing. I have experienced all the issues you talk about when a less than ideal workflow is used. Never been happy with the results.

Do you have an workflows that would be in the $1200 budget range?

Dan316 06-26-2020 08:50 PM

lorsmurf-any TBC's left? After a hiatus I decided to redo my personal VHS conversions-this time do it properly with an external TBC after I read all these posts here. I bought the AG 1980P several years ago and wrote directly to DVD on a DMR-EH59GA-K recorder. Now I thought I would redo those tapes on to digital files and this time do a better job. I guess I am trying to see if an old dog can learn some new tricks. Jokes apart-can't seem to find a TBC anywhere. Thanks for all your help here.

Not true! :old:

Sometimes I do assemble PAL workflows, a few times per year. Anybody seeking a PAL workflow just needs to PM me. The ability to build really depends on the gear available at the time.

Right this moment, I can't built one. Have the capture card, can acquire the VCR, but no TBC. But that could change at any moment.

TBCs currently available are here: http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/mark...bc-1000-a.html
I also have a waiting list, but I may have to cap it soon.

Better workflow will be that AG1980 > TBC > lossless capture.
- good VCR
- looking for decent TBC
- but what about that capture card?

Panasonic DVD recorders were all pretty ghastly quality, even in XP. So many blocks, off colors, tinted colors, noise, weird artifacts and issues when TBC not in chain.

Dan316 06-30-2020 06:16 AM

Thank you lordsmurf. The workflow you suggested is the one I want to get set up and going and even got my old XP machine out of the closet as well. Only missing element now is the external TBC. Checked the link for the TBCs-guess currently you are out of any TBC(?). Could you PM me if and when you have any you have resurrected out of your old ones? Thanks much.

ctufts 07-13-2020 03:27 PM

Do you still have the external TBC available?

lordsmurf 07-30-2020 11:18 AM

I actually have one extra workflow again. :)

lordsmurf 10-19-2020 04:49 AM

I have two workflows available again. :)

lordsmurf 02-13-2021 03:16 PM

Bump. :warning:

One workflow is available again! -- and it's a REALLY nice one! :cool:

TBCs and VCRs are limited again, which means workflows are limited.

lordsmurf 05-28-2021 05:33 PM

I reserved some gear for a few nice workflows. Get 'em while I got 'em. :cool:

POrwig 06-07-2021 06:48 PM

Could I get a quote
 
I was wondering if I could get a quote from anyone who has the a S-VHS VCR with internal TBC for either renting or selling.

I know some of you may not like the idea of renting out one of these VCR's, but I assure you, I take real pride and care in handling these things like they are priceless. I have two 1960's-1970's 8-track record player combo, my grandmother hardly ever used it and when she passed I asked to keep it. The reason I ask to rent one of these, is I have only two VHS tapes to transfer at the most and buying one of these for $800.00+ does not seem reasonable. Unless someone wants to transfer these VHS tapes for me, but these are the original 1994 VHS from a JC Penny camcorder which is no longer available. I do, however have a JVC HR-S3600U, which I know is not the best of the best.

latreche34 06-07-2021 11:47 PM

It is not about renting, it is about shipping, No one wants to have his precious VCR tortured by the shipping carriers, If the VCR is permanently damaged you may not even be able to find a replacement. What it starts as a rent it may end up with an expensive VCR purchase that doesn't even work.

lordsmurf 06-08-2021 12:47 AM

This is a marketplace listing, not a general discussion thread.

"Renting" a VCR is what I always suggest: buy it, use it, resell it. The gear holds value, you'll recoup costs. The onus is on you to take care of it. Not just care in using, but care in re-shipping. Extreme care in packing, insurance, tracking.

For transferring two VHS tapes, contact us: http://www.digitalFAQ.com/forum/sendmessage.php

An ancient camcorder not being available doesn't matter. Those things were never good as VHS players. Even if the recording was misaligned (a common touted "reason" for using a bad old player), the best option is still to misalign a better deck to match. Noting that misalignment is not something novices should attempt, but rather something that somebody who specializes in restoration (either as hobby, or as pro).

Hi, do you happen to have any workflows in stock? Thanks!

MarioGuy789 09-06-2021 12:02 PM

Since I'm more than likely about to come across a good amount of money, I've finally decided to take you up on one of these workflows. I don't have the money yet but I'll most likely have it within a week or two. Simply put, I'm just interested in the VCR and the TBC, as I have already bought a card from you previously and still have it. In that time I have also acquired a Windows XP and 7 machine, not a great one, but one that will get the job done. You probably can't reserve equipment but I'm just letting you know I'm interested at this point. PM for further discussion.

Thanks.
