Oh, those diagonal lines are actually normal, look up "combing effect." It's because interlaced video is being played on your progressive monitor. If your footage ends up on a playable DVD or BluRay...

Well, the bargain cards are the older PCI-based cards (such as the Turtle Beach Santa Cruz or prosumer cards from late 90s) as long as they work. I'm using a Windows XP PC that's over 15 years old so...

To add to what dpalomaki, hodgey, & msgohan have already stated, I think it's great you have the original tapes and the original camera; if you can hang on to them longer that might be a good...

TBC = time based correction

Lots of info on this forum, you'll need an external one to correct frame timing and one in the VCR to correct the scanline timing.
