The only one I've used was a VM-D865LE (I think VM-D865LA (and D965LA) would be the NTSC equivalents, and there are a few more D8 ones) so that's the only one I can say for sure. There are some very ...

I seem to remember the c2000e vcr we had here could play in jog/shuttle mode for longer at whatever speed though that's also without sound. (It also blended every 2 fields from what I remember)....

Not gonna comment on the quality of Topaz as I haven't used it, though if one is dealing with AI this point is very important. It needs the right training material to do a good job. An AI model...

Yeah the capture card isn't what causing the noise lines, that's either an issue with the tape or VCR (does adjusting tracking help?). Using a VC500 with the direct output from a VCR will give you a...

Second that, if you have an example of a section where the blue screen start it would be helpful in diagnosing it.

If the issue is something else than alignment, and the footage is very important,...

On late-model VRCs like this the DOC is not really adjustable even though it is analog. Older ones often had trimpots for adjusting the level of the delayed signal, and even older ones may have more...

You can't normally adjust the volume of RCA outputs on vcrs (though some older ones may have internal adjustments). The HS950 has a headphone output you could try though (using a minijack to rca...

Comparing the videos it looks like it's mostly just the panasonic masking the dropouts a bit better, e.g if you look closely on this image, the dropout is present in both, it's a bit hard to spot...

Going a little off topic but anyway. What it looks like is that the 07 and later US models (+ the earlier ES20 and ES40) are based on LSI(later aquired by magnum) chips rather than panasonic's own,...

I don't think it exists for this card. It's specific to cards using empia chips while this one uses a conexant chip afaik. The drivers were lazily written, haven't seen any way to adjust the audio...

I'm not sure if it's the root cause here, would have to look at the clip in detail, but I've noticed that there is some oddness about the dropout-corrected lines on JVCs of these years. They end up...

If you mean the black pixels on the left and right, most TBCs do that too, including the internal TBC in the panasonic and the commonly used datavideo and cypress ones. Some of them make the borders...

One thing that can give you a clue on whether it's alignment-related is to see if the noise bar moves up/down or changes if manually adjusting tracking. If it stays in the same place and seems...
