That's really interesting that the original would have blown highlights but not a second-gen copy.

Do you happen to have (or at least have access to) another VCR on which you can test both tapes?...

What playback device(s) are you using for these tapes? Are you putting the VHS-C in a VHS adapter and playing it in the exact same deck as the VHS copy? What brand/model of VCR/camcorder are you...

IIRC he needed to add the ES15 because he was getting weird artifacts when using the camcorder's line TBC + AVT-8710. He found that disabling the camcorder's line TBC resolved it, so he picked up an...

Yes, I'm saying you don't actually need the ADVC-300.

Most D8 camcorders (including the two that you have) have essentially the exact same functionality built-in--i.e. they can convert analog...

Unless you really want to use the external frame TBC, you don't need to order that A/V minijack cable.

You would need a 4-pin to 8-pin firewire cable though if you don't already have one. You...

OK, so yes it was quite common to dub Video8/Hi8 tapes to VHS back in the day. As you surmised, it was often done so tapes could be lent to others, but also for easier watching at home since the VHS...

Hi Paula,

Well, D8 as a format didn't exist prior to 1998/99, so if you have footage on D8 that's older than that then you can be pretty sure it originated on an analog tape and was transferred to...

I think among TBCs the AVT-8710 is the one that is prone to overheating and causing issues.

IMHO, you can keep the TBC-1000 powered for as long as you want to do actively use it (doing captures)....

Probably not necessary unless you are seeing/hearing evidence of grounding issues. But it can't hurt, so if you want to do it proactively, go for it.
