I work at a TV station and we have a few hundred tapes that we want to get digitized. We have two JVC SR-VS30U decks. It's a S-VHS/DV combo deck, and it has a FireWire port. Through some tricks I was able to do with it, I got it to export VHS through the FireWire port that usually only works with DV. Unfortunately, there's a bit of noise that comes with it when I get it output to a Mac. Are there any good external passthrough TBCs that are compatible with firewire 800?

Or would I just be better off with capturing it with S-Video?
