You need to color correct both in analog and digital stage. I do all the color correction with FCP using Apple ProRes. You need to use scopes, this is mandatory. A calibrated monitor won't prevent...

The EDIT function disables all video processing within the VCR circuitry and provides a "true to the original" signal. It's useful not just for recording onto the VCR itself but also for playing back...

This is caused by a screwed up tape, period. A really bad tape can cause a TBC-1000 to choke too. Does that mean that the TBC-1000 isn’t a full frame TBC? Of course not. Please re-read my posts....

I've had issues with some tapes... losing sync. Tapes with severe tracking problems. That's what I was referring to with "choke".

Don’t buy a TBC unless you need to. An ES10 has frame sync capabilities and will work just fine for the vast majority of tapes. It only chokes on really nasty tapes. I have a large collection of...

As Latreche has already told you... just turn the worm gear, which is a small white gear. If you look at the loading motor, you can't miss it. Turn that wheel clockwise by hand and make sure to also...

Did you remove the front panel? Once you take off the big screws that hold the chasis in place, you just need to locate the loading motor and unthread the tape manually with the VCR shut down. Not as...

I wouldn't play with alignment in such a high quality unit. Use a cheap machine instead. Getting back the alignment right just by eye is almost imposible. You can get a visually perfect picture but...
