Digital VHS decks natively record/playback MPEG-2 transport streams over their Firewire ports. Camcorders output DV which your DVHS deck will transcode to MPEG-2. It sounds like a cable problem to be...

You need a full frame TBC to capture with it, otherwise there will be frame drops. You can directly capture 480i video with it, I would not use the bob deinterlacer (do it in software). I can't vouch...

The AVT-8710 and its various Cypress clones support PAL-N. I don't think there is such a thing as a PAL-N VHS recording, the tape itself is standard PAL, just the output is different with the 3.58Mhz...

Digital VHS had a more developed market (if you can call it that!) in North America than in PAL/DVB-T regions. As the video that I made explains, D-VHS came into being back in 1998 to record DVB-S...

Have you tried AmaRec 3.10 to capture yet? I've found it to be a bit more flexible with capture devices that don't report like a "standard" SD capture card would. It'll also properly capture from...

The JVC DigiPure units definitely have it, as do the late model Sony Hi-8 and Digital 8 camcorders with DNR.

This chroma "ghosting" is a byproduct of the noise reduction system in the VCR. The system uses temporal noise reduction techniques that may cause ghosting.

Sounds awfully like a kidney stone. I haven't had to deal with them, but its one of the few things that have that kind of intense pain.

I have DVHS tapes here, they have the detect hole for both DVHS and SVHS decks, so they are backward compatible. The best SVHS tapes were likely TDK XP Super Pros, long out of production. They did...

The attached RAR is coming up as corrupt, it likely needs to be re-uploaded.

If it actually supported RGB via the SCART port, it would be on people's radars for things like video game capture. I'm leaning towards it only taking composite and S-Video from the SCART jack....

I don't think the TVP5150 supports RGB capture, you'd need another ADC for that. SCART ports usually carry audio, composite, and sometimes S-Video (unofficial extension to plug standard).

Just use your original camera. Quality will be the same as Digital 8 and other Hi-8 models from that era and you don't need stereo if your tapes are mono anyway. XR isn't needed unless you know for a...

Try cleaning the heads first before touching any alignment. Are the tapes Sony branded from the early 90s? Its a good chance they clogged the heads.
