The EV-C200 does not have an internal TBC. The reason I'm even using this unit -- i.e., eventually sought it out -- is because back in 2017 I borrowed the same from a neighbor who worked for the...

That's how I interpreted you and believe, with the proper (honest) disclaimer, it could find a "happy" buyer. You know, someone like @lordsmurf looking for black 8710s to turn green. ;)

Ah, interesting prospect. Though I will probably hold onto it as a poor sap's backup TBC until I get another, better backup.

That's the frightening thing about this avocation: it seems that at any...

Thanks @lordsmurf. As I mentioned previously, IIRC, I have some tapes where the transfer using this setup is "solid" and others that are a bit better than what I shared. If the deck was crappy I...

Yeah, that was a special clip where the test pattern actually showed. Over the course of 3 Hi8 and 4 Video8 tapes, that's the only snippet where that happens. On one attempt over that same sequence...
