I don't think you sent me my email yet.

There are a few VCR repair shops in Italy, I'll try to send it to one of them.

Anyway, WHV tapes were usually not low grade tapes. In Italy they started...

Yes I’m that toon collector you’re thinking of. Ok, so here’s a bit on that tape I ripped. It’s part of a collection released in Italy, the UK also got a similar one during the 80s. They made new...

Ok, here's a lossless clip.

This noise seems more like interference to me.



Sorry again for the double post, but it seems in this unit many capacitors don't seem the stock ones. I heard that...

I sent you privately a lossless capture because it'd be too large to attach it here.

Both the SV120 and 121 don't have picture settings. I have an Australian NV HV60PX model with NTSC 3.58...

I received the VCR and I'm very unsatisfied with it. There's way more noise, especially chroma noise, even though less grain. The only picture setting that makes sense is the "edit" mode.

Usually every brand has their own hit and miss models.

As far as I know Sony never produced VCRs with features such as the TBC, or even S-VHS support with S Video out. I don’t think it’s accurate...

I heard the dynamic drum actually makes the deck more unreliable due to more moving parts, and doesn’t really improve picture stability on normal play anymore. I mentioned it without looking into it...

The main problem with the NV VP line of combos is the very poor tracking. Even on good tapes sometimes the hi-fi audio drops and I get frame losses.

For an example I have the Australian model NV...

What sounds absurd to me is how a low end DVD/VHS combo from the same era outperforms what should be the high end models.

Panasonic S-VHS player grain noise?

Hi. I got a Panasonic model NV SV120 last couple months. One first thing I noticed was a leaking capacitor inside but I replaced it myself shortly after.

Anyway, here's the issue. When I play...

So, if I record on HDD or DVD using the EH55, would I get no 704 padding? I already record in mpeg2 so it wouldn’t make a difference.

I haven’t tested it yet. I need to recap it anyway.

I’m pretty sure my VCR doesn’t have a line TBC, but it’s the capture card that has some line sync stabilization which is also specified in the chip datasheet.

For an example with other capture...

I see the passthrough barely even makes a difference compared to the capture card I use, especially on this new VCR I'm using which has way better tracking control.

I heard the HDMI output most of the time only outputs in progressive scan which is not what I'd want anyway.

But how does that happen to PAL and not NTSC which instead shows up at full 720x480?

DMR ES10 passthrough cropped to 704x576?
