Hello,

i'm trying to improve my hardware capture devices and the workflow.

How it is for VHS:

- Panasonic NV-FS200 pal
- Ati 600 usb capture card on W10 pc.

Connected with gold plated SVHS cable and cinch for sound.

How it is for Video8/Hi8:

- Sony CCD-TRV66E pal
- Ati 600 usb capture card on W10 pc.

Connected with gold plated SVHS cable and cinch for sound.

I also noticed that when I connect the TRV66 to my Pana FS200, it seems that I have a better quality, is it possible ? TBC and DNR was activated on both devices.
Is this a good way of improvment to connect the sony to the pana with DNR and TBC on both devices ?

Is there any valuable improvment possible ?
I know that all depends on source quality (and in this case the quality of the tape is a big deal) but If I had an affordable TBC between the source and the capture or even if I improve the capture card, will that be a good improvment ?
I also read somwhere that the TBC of the Pana FS200 was really good, so is it valuable to add an other tbc ?

Thanks in advance for any advice

Kind regards,

Chrisbati

Daisy chained the TRV-66E to the NV-FS200? Hmm.. Maybe. They're both line TBCs, maybe there's a synergistic effect there if you notice a difference. I guess it just depends on what errors you're trying to correct, and your tastes.

But if what you want to capture has noticable time base error (vertical straight lines look distorted) to fix it requires a frame TBC.

You're right about the source tape, I have some source tapes that have such a strong stable signal that I don't even need a frame TBC to capture them; they look great on DVD, just slight time base error on a few scenes but what average 65 year old viewer is going to pause a video and point it out? (one of my target audience)

Oh, one improvement I can suggest is to add a really good sound card; makes all the difference in my setup, but YMMV.

I thought the fix for wiggly vertical lines is a line TBC eg ES-10, 15?

Line TBC fixes wiggles, frame TBC cleans the signal reducing dropped frames.

Mea culpa, I mixed up jitter with vertical lines somehow

Ok i think the Panasonic fs200 has not a simple TBC but a full-field (multi-line) TBC.
But still i have lines issues.
If I understand correctly, a full frame TBC will not be really helpfull because the main difference with what I already have is on dropped frames which is not really an issue for me now.
