I've put together a few TBC-less workflows, using an ES10 as a stand-in. Though not ideal, it will work. With TBCs getting so rare now, this is becoming the only viable option for hardware to transfer your analog tapes.

The "kit" includes:
- JVC SR-V101U S-VHS with internal line TBC
- DataVideo DVK100 + DMR-ES15, TBC(ish) combo, modified for capture workflows
- ATI 600 USB clone capture card

Available:
- 1 @ $775 + shipping

These have been thoroughly tested, cleaned, VCRs refurb'd/serviced where needed, then the workflow re-tested. 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. On the VCRs, I test for color, timing, the transport, alignment, audio, etc. This is equipment that met my stringent expectations. Most of the gear is in cosmetically flawless condition, excellent at worst.

PM if interested.



Usage notes for this workflow:

The JVC TBC can be on or off, for this particular setup. For most workflows, JVC TBC needs to be on as much as possible. The ES15 TBC(ish) acts as line with frame sync. When JVC TBC on, ES15 line functions not used. When JVC off, ES15 line used instead. The reason for the JVC, at this point, is for superior transport compared to other VCRs (excluding better, but more expensive, Panasonic S-VHS decks).

This will not work for retail tapes, as most have an anti-copy (usually Macrovision) on the tape. A true TBC is required to truly cleanse a tape of these artificial errors. The ES15 is not strong enough, not a true TBC. Some non-retail tapes may also be flagged as copy protected, because again anti-copy is an artificial error, and sometimes legit errors can be mistaken for the false ones, as detected by the hardware (both ES15 and capture card).
