The AG1980P has some special digital video decoding circuitry so the so it may not be translatable to how other decks work. I(PAL) tend to use edit setting on the JVCs I've used as I find them to to...

From what I've gathered, they seem to have disabled the functionality on many PAL models for whatever reason, at least it's what this (http://lea.hamradio.si/~s51kq/DV-IN.HTM) site suggests. It may...

For 99% of tapes your EH65 will do the job as well as the ES10. Maybe it's different for the NTSC units, but I've never had any issues with capturing directly from the ES10 (or any other...

Maybe it's just my units, but I've found my ES10 and EH57 both tend to clip (i.e brightest spots end up being >255 Y) on most tapes so I have to lower the video level to avoid it (currently using a...

One thing I have encountered 2-3 times with the ES10 (also happened when testing it with my EH57, pioneer/sonys and in-VCR TBC) was horizontal sync positions being misdetected. One of them I remember...

Maybe not terribly helpful, but I would guess it's something gone bad on one of the video boards/pcbs. You're getting some video, but something is going wrong in the processing chain somewhere before...

It causes jitter on mine as well.

I think what it does is use something like this (https://www.digchip.com/datasheets/download_datasheet.php?id=365517&part-number=HD64F2194) chip function (that's...

Did you test both S-Video and composite outputs?

It's kind of hard to know what's wrong otherwise, maybe something inside them is loose, or maybe worse.

Hm, I must have misremembered, the interlace option is still there in the latest version.

Forgot about x264/x265 lossless, would be great to use if they weren't syrupy slow.

I'm guessing it's acting as a TBC of sorts in this setup, stabilizing the signal for the blackmagic card. I would presume it would go through an A/D -> D/A step in the AVDC in that case, otherwise...

It's very similar to the Phliips, albeit slightly newer,maybe comparable to the VR1100 line, should be at least as good as the VR1000 given the same conditions. (For people in NTSC land, the S7xxx...

They made these (https://www.ebay.com/p/1156528998) but they're probably rare, expensive, and since it's a pro deck, may be SP only.
