I'm not convinced of that. The TBC-1000 should not care about the "rough spots", and insert new sync.

Can you? Probably.
Should you? Nope. Crap software. Ugly capturing.


I probably do. I've archived an incredible amount of video software/drivers/hacks over the years.

I'm really not following.
Back up.
What exactly are you doing? And with what exact hardware?

HDMI is only good for HD capturing. Not SD (VHS, etc).

One example: New Cyberian. That's an online store that sells discs, not a manufacturer.

As usual, Wikipedia is just what people think they know, not a vetted source of actual quality information.
