Then just use the ES-15 only.

If the VCR's line TBC is not defective and turned on it should not give you audio sync provided that you have a good capture card not a chinese crap.

It is difficult to judge from static pictures, but the filtered images seem to lead to a "plastic look". You should judge on the real video. You can post some sample here.

I don't like all the filtering you're doing here. If you over-filter video, yes, it can look the same, and not in a good way. Video newbies have a bad habit of overfiltering. Don't. Resist that.

In Avisynth (via Hybrid is fine), you need to add WarpSharp or WarpSharp2. It'll look better than Topaz, that software is such a hatchet job on video. Anything Topaz can do can be done better in...

That doesn't have TBC, or even anything like a TBC. It's an 80s item, not too different from lousy Archer or Sima gear.

Not being used doesn't really matter. The "new" item is most than a decade old, so the term "new" is somewhat BS when applied to functional items like electronics. Caps can age regardless.
