Any filters that could clean this up?

Hi there,

I've been happily converting away for many months during lockdown - but recently came across a batch of tapes on a local Facebook group, and took a punt that they might have some content...

Thank you for replying. Interesting to read your thoughts on the JVC decks. There's Dynamic Drum on higher-end editions, of course, but the jury seems to be out on whether that makes any difference...

Hi all,

I've had one of my Panasonic decks go down on me recently, so am continuing my conversions on my JVC HR-S7955. It's reminded me, if anything, that I do prefer the slightly softer picture...

I have Overlay on. I guess I could try some based on No Display and see if that makes any difference.

Listen, thanks so much for trying to help me.

Okay, so I had a spare old PC which will take an XP installation so I've done that. It's still hit and miss, frankly. My benchmark tape is fine, but others are out of sync - even with the TBC on the...

Dropped frames/sound sync - ATI USB 600

Can you give me an idea of the size of plastic tube you used? I guess Kinyo did used to sell replacement cleaning pads - does the installed one come out easily? I didn't get a...

Thanks for your responses. So if it is VirtualDub's resync feature in operation, what would that suggest? A fault with my TBC? Could it, for example, be down to overheating?

Incidentally, I...

Use Cypress 1T-TBC or Datavideo TBC-1000?

Hi everyone,

So I took a *massive* punt on an eBay auction here in the UK. A scruffy-looking Datavideo TBC-1000 was up for sale and while there was some interest, I ended up buying it for just...

Advice: Is this tape beyond saving?

Hi all,

Picked up a very rare old VHS tape on that auction site the other day. It was advertised as being 'in very good condition for its age' - which means 37 years.

Anyway, I've tried it in...
