The aspect ratios 4:3 and 16:9 are landscape-styled frames with higher horizontal resolution than vertical resolution. 720x480 and 704x480 have higher horizontal than vertical resolution, which is...

I know how much of a pain in the neck that must be. You could try a hassle like moving all the capture gear (except the capture card) to another location and hook it up to a TV. The problem there is...

Don't fret over that. It comes with time. A workable capture is always the first step.

I've done it many, many times. That's the main reason I stick with Avisynth, VirtualDub, and sometimes...

PE is a consumer version, so it may max out at DVD, not higher specs.

You'll end out wasting time and money to fix power issues. You may grab a few unneeded cables (for now), etc, but eventually...

Thanks for the new samples. Dandy stuff, mostly good points but still a few things to learn from, so I'll take a closer look and post later.

I loaded them into a hard drive on my OPPO and DENON,...

You know, these posts get a little long when you have to keep taking a break every couple of minutes. Maybe it's my medifcation.

A 3000 to 4000 1-pass encode sounds like the usual default for many encoders, but that has always sounded like a default designed for web posting. The standard def BluRay example I gave is for MPEG2...

A UPS will fix power-related problems at least half the time. Not all the time. Let's see what happens.

If not the wall power, then perhaps its being generated elsewhere -- VCR, computer, etc....

The closer you can get to 100%, sure, go for it. But don't chase the impossible. All things considered, 90% is often a fair target for homemade VHS sources. Simple histogram values for...

Congrats on the kiddo. :congrats:

Software-based proc amps on capture aren't ideal. The better choice is hardware-based, even ones inside of TBCs (AVT-8710, TBC-3000, etc). The reason? The...

You should be making adjustments for at least nominally valid levels with every tape during capture whether you use the AVT, another tbc, or no tbc. Most tapes will need similar adjustments, many...

Thanks for that capture info.

BTW, I still use my original AIW 7500. I always adjust Levels in VDub before capturing. Adjustments are always required from tape, a little or a lot depending on the...

The AVT-8710 has a side effect of raising blacks and lowering the contrast, even when the source is a DVD player. It isn't related to VCR timing.

This may be considered a good thing if your tapes...

All external tbc's affect the image in some way -- e.g., the TBC-1000 tends to soften. My AVT raises gamma somewhat. This is usually corrected using VirtualDub capture's "Levels..." dialog, which...

The values on the non-TBC image look hot, crushed, and possibly illegal. That can be a side effect of a TBC. It has to do with timing and AGC. Since the timing now corrected, AGC isn't allowed to do...

No. It's more complex. :)

JVC S-VHS VCRs are suggested due to their filtering abilities. So buying the fancy VCR, only to always turn off the filters, is somewhat pointless. In general, it should...
