Just wanted to point out an auction with older version (green) AVT-8710 TBC's for sale. I contacted the seller and confirmed that yes, all units he has are the green ones (before the chipset defects). I ordered one and will update on if it's a good unit or not when it arrives.

Thought this may be of interest since the old ones are harder to find typically.

Listing: http://m.ebay.com/itm/AV-Tool-AVT-87...-/262160191593

Update -

Received my green AVT-8710 unit today. Seems to be legit new-old-stock and properly functioning. It arrived in what looks to be original packaging, wrapped in plastic and apparently not opened previously. Guessing from the serial number "200507250031", I'm wondering if it was unit #31 produced on July 25, 2005?

I tested it with the on-screen menus from my JVC SR-V10U, and the picture was clear without issues. Playback of a tape seemed fine, although I admittedly don't have any tapes in my project pile that have particularly bad vertical jitter.

Photos are attached... looks to be different chips than the example in the "Is my new AVT-8710 DOA?" thread. The 2 parallel chips are "KOL" (maybe "KCL?") instead of Averlogic. There are two Phillips chips in place of the Trident chips in the DOA thread example; also, the large chip on mine says LTB-100 V2.0 while the DOA thread example has Chinese(?) characters and V2.2.

So... looks like this seller's units are legit. As of now he has 7 of them left, if anyone could use one.

I bought a few.

That whole transaction was odd. She was a new eBay member, and would sell 10 at a time. I wonder how many she really has. I wonder where she got them. Her pricing kept changing as well. Her communication was terrible, and she almost never responded to questions. This assumes that "she" is really a she.

Sometimes you can find nice items on eBay with a great price. But you know something is still off there.

Well, she immediately answered my question about whether or not they were, in fact, green... but not so much when it came to posting shipping info. By the time I got impatient and asked if it had shipped yet, it showed up that afternoon. Then she posted the tracking number after the fact.

I can only assume she bought a few pallets of new-old-stock ones from somewhere at auction... either way, it ended up being the real deal so no complaints here!

Are the ones you ordered all legit, LS?

LS did you ever check your's out to see if they are ok. The unit I have from BH shows the signs from the DOA post. I'm rma's it and going to order one of the green ones now. I will report once I get it....Then the Recapture journey begins again....

Both seem to test fine.
