You're welcome! I've been there, and I know the frustration of spending so much time on this stuff. Once I got things working, it was all worth it.

Sorry you're having such trouble.

Maybe FixVHSOversharp won't work in avisynth+ I'm using regular Avisynth 2.6 32-bit. Since this plugin was made in 2003, it was probably built as 32-bit. But I'll attach it here just in case....

Thanks for the feedback, lordsmurf, on not upsizing to 768 from 720.

After a good night's sleep and a bit of review. I assume you are capturing at 720 x 576 for PAL. If so, the same idea of cropping a total of 16 pixels off the left and right edges to create 704 x 576...

Refurbished AG-1980 drifting chroma on EP tapes?

Although I've never done this myself, I've read on this forum that h.264 supports aspect ratio settings. So you can specify in say a 720 x 480 file to display 4:3 aspect ratio (i.e. 640 x 480). That...

I could guess and say it's the tape and those are what you call dropouts or comets from tape aging. But to be sure, I'd try a little process of elimination to be sure it's not something else. Try...
