I think that OS is much less relevant than blank media compatibility in terms of burn quality. In this I know that the 208 can be better than the 209. The 211 I don't know much about but you could...

For the LCPM tracks, you may want to look at getting a used Edirol/Roland UA-1EX. eBay has them for $20-30, sometimes a bit more. It has a mini-TOSLINK input and is even compatible with 32kHz content...

Identifying artifacts, fixed with video filters?

I recently began capturing VHS again, which has been an on-again/off-again project for the past couple of years. I think my hardware and software chains are alright, following the guides here. But...

Hmm, interesting. This is on WinXP, and it consistently does not show video. It sounds like this feature could be spotty but if so I feel like it would have been mentioned somewhere else? And I...

LOL, well nobody ever means to oversharpen, but it can happen, and it's not always a matter of turning it down a notch or using Repair() or something. And to clarify - I have used AAers in both...

I don't suppose these encodes are good enough to pick out the minute differences between them. So I'll either redo them properly or organize a way for you to get the originals, once you chime in.
