Judging by the posted clips it does seem to help at least, the image looks very stable, more than what you usually get without any sort of line-TBC, looks like more than "almost nothing" to me at...

Seems (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWhXRZYUsm4&t=598s) it had some crazy features like movable heads for tracking and stuff. Whether it helps with playback I don't know, but it looks like a...

PAL camcorders often had the DV in > Av out part disabled from the factory, so it can be hard to know which ones will work. Only one I've tested is a DCR-TRV 330 Digital8 camcorder, it had some...

Depends what you intend to do with it. Most combo decks are pretty shoddy, but JVC made a few SVHS ones which are decent, the most fancy being the SR-MV50S with TBC and all the bells and whistles and...

Do you get the same thumping sound if the tape has hi-fi audio?

I have a newer JVC deck (and 2 samsungs) that has a similar high-frequency noise on playback as is hearable in your clip, but not the thumping. I have yet to find out what the cause is though. I...

With that VCR (with no build-in TBC) you would probably be better off with using a Panasonic DMR-ES10/15 or other DVR with similar capabilities. Unlike the AVT/Datavideo TBCs they can do a good job...

Do you get no output at all in play mode, or very garbled output? (may be hard to spot without an external TBC or a CRT TV, and I don't know if the JVC blue screens on bad signal or not).

I have...

From what we've documented in other threads, the AVT uses SAA7114 (http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/vcr-repair/3053-avt-8710-doa-9.html#post53851) video decoder chips for decoding the analog video,...

Judging by the service manuals, the AG1970P doesn't have 3D digital noise reduction like the JVCs do (when TBC/DNR is enabled), which does a fair bit to clean up noisy chroma, so it will probably be...

Datavideo seems to have used some off-brand (Wendell) capacitors in their TBCs (or at least in all the images I've seen of them and in the TBC-3000 I have.) Never found any datasheets for them, so...

The image going in and out like that means that the VCR isn't locking to the control track on the tape at all. In that case adjusting tracking won't do anything (I think you are doing it correctly)....

It may work to switch to preview, and then under device -> device settings check save current display mode as default, and restart. Otherwise just using Virtualdub2 is probably fine unless you...

A nice thing with using mkv is that you can compress the audio with flac (lossless) as well and save a bit more space.
