When you work professionally in a field, you tend to have not just the equipment you need, but backups of everything. And when equipment tends to be scarce, hard to replace or repair, you may have backups of the backups! That's how I was with TBCs. But that studio career is over (some "employees" were contractors, hence owning the gear ourselves), and I need to get over that "must keep backups of backups" mindset. dFAQ has enough equipment, I have enough personal equipment, the excess can go. That's good news for you.
I'll also be letting two AG-1980P decks go in the near future. Same reason, extra backups.

PM sent for one of your Cypress AVT-8710.

jwillis84 10-04-2017 07:31 AM

Gosh.. that workflow looks nice.. just can't swing it right now though.

Great prices!

lordsmurf 11-10-2017 04:14 AM

All TBC-3000s now gone.
8710s and 1000s almost gone.

If you're still waffling on whether you should get one, better make up your mind quick, :wink2:

lordsmurf 12-24-2017 01:57 AM

More gone. :cool:

imgoinmad 02-24-2018 12:13 PM

Is the AVT-8710 still available?

lordsmurf 05-01-2018 10:34 AM

I've released a few more of my Cypress units. :eek:

Michaelf83 05-03-2018 01:31 AM

Hi lordsmurf,

Which Cypress units do you have left?

Thanks,
Michael

Could you give me a price on the DataVideo TBC-1000 including shipping to the UK?

I really appreciate your work here, I've just started out and this site has been a fantastic resource! :)

Thanks,
Richard.

lordsmurf 08-16-2018 12:13 AM

I have another pair available. :woot:

Sidegraded my personal DataVideo TBC gear, selling off these excellent extra units.

- TBC-1000 is like new, includes OEM power supply - gone!
- TBC-4000 is very good, replacement PSU available from TGrant

Already had nibbles for both units, didn't think I'd need to even post them in the Marketplace, but no closed deals yet. So still up for grabs. First to PM me wins! :P

rks84093 10-19-2018 08:14 PM

I bought a Panasonic 1980 fro Deter and I still need an external TBC for my conversion work. Do you have something that will work? Thanks!

How much are you asking for the AVT 8710?

Im looking for a TBC, how much for the AVT-8710?

Auggie 11-30-2018 11:06 AM

Any other TBCs for sale? Seems to be the last piece of kit I need (wish I embarked on converting my tapes long ago when this stuff was more readily available).

Nope, not at the moment. And even unsure if more moments will come. TBCs have gotten really rare in the past 12-18 months, and the latest eBay auction was for an insane $900 for a TBC-1000.

The ES15+DVK TBC(ish) setup I have left is probably the best you'll come across. And it'll be both lower cost, and immediately available. For many scenarios, it's 99% as effective as full TBC. It's something we'd discuss in a PM. You'll need to tell me about your project, your sources, and I'll tell you if it will fit your needs. In some cases, namely anti-tearing, you'd have wanted an ES15 anyway, paired with a TBC.

(As a word of warning, the DVKs I've seen from eBay are pretty fubar. Even the ES15 are not all that great. As with VCRs, "tested" and "works" means nothing. I've gotten PMs by burners buyers. The 2nd-biggest problem is that both units are usually incomplete, and tracking down the pieces can be a slow nuisance. And then when you do complete both, with working "accessories" (ie required parts), the issues aren't done yet. With the ES15, you have both the 000000 and caps-related issues to watch for. But the 1st-biggest problem is that DVKs were studio gear, and often abused. I've been able to resuscitate some units for those burned buyers, but some not. And then, after all that is done, and the gear actually works correctly, you still must modify the unit to work well in a capture scenario. Sometimes trying to DIY from scrapped eBay gear isn't wise, especially if you're not well versed in it.)

Does the IDen IVT-7 have the Sony 7 PIN Y/C 688 Dub input and is it also PAL compatible?

Yes, it has the 7-pin DIN input.
I'm not sure about PAL.

crissrudd4554 01-22-2019 07:55 PM

Any suggestions on what to use?? Seems the Datavideo and AVT options are out. I have a Panasonic ES15 but my video captures with it occasionally skips frames. I even tried capturing sans a capture device and just record a VHS to the DVD recorder and burn a disc with that. The test DVD still had a few skipped frames in spots. Should I try a different DVD recorder?? A different model?? The ES10 or another ES15?? I recently even tried the Hotronic AR31 to no avail. Didnt get a video signal. Are there any other TBC units suggested?? Are there any available?? For the record I need something with Composite video.

lordsmurf 01-22-2019 08:11 PM

PM me. I have a composite Cypress TBC available. :)

tkt2rde 02-06-2019 12:11 PM

Looks like I'm in the "need it" category for a TBC with S-Video. The struggle is real. :)

+1

Have been putting off building a capture rig for over 15 years, with the theory that A>D hardware will mature a bit more, while ignoring the crates of VHS and miniDV footage in my climate controlled basement, Finally revisiting this, and it looks hardware peaked around 2005.

Looking to build a rig from the ground up the right way, using reconditioned parts from a trusted vendor until I'm comfortable doing surgery and cleaning gear.

Sent you a PM.

cbehr91 03-02-2019 01:58 PM

I also sent you a PM. Thanks in advance!

Anyone have a TBC-1000 available??

This is my thread for the TBCs I have available. If you want to look for (request) something else, something I do not have available, then please open your own thread. Marketplace listings should remain on-topic to the original post.

That said, while the TBC-1000 is excellent, it's not the only TBC, nor even the end-all/be-all of TBCs.

crissrudd4554 03-12-2019 05:44 AM

Well to be fair you said in a post above that you’ve added several TBC’s without actually specifying which ones they were. This was partly why I was asking since technically it wasn’t made fully clear you didn’t have it available. Second I never said that particular model was the best of the best. I was just seeking if you or anyone else in this thread had one available.

Gotcha. And PM'd. :congrats:

Lordsmurf have you ever heard of or used this type of TBC Leitch DPS-235 - Time Base Corrector & Proc Amp [TGP-5021]
newbee looking to do my own tapes.
Thanks!

That's a rackmount broadcast TBC. Not suggested. Even my composite green AVT-8710 clone would be a better choice.

This is a marketplace listing (for sale) thread, not a general discussion thread.

Success! I've repaired a few units, those are now available. :)

Just Cypress units, yes, the "green" era AVT-8710 and "clones".

digicube 06-11-2019 12:48 PM

Do you know if I.DEN IVT-7 can transcode U-mactic Y/C 688 to S-VHS Y/C 358? Do you have a scan of the manual?
