I've been processing about 20 PAL VHS tapes using a Panasonic NV-FS200 VTR going through an AVTool AVT-8710 TBC (I'm based in the US). Everything is going smoothly except for 3 tapes where the image has rolled up a little ways. It's not rolling or moving, it just stays in the same place. (See image). The weird thing is that when I play them on my Panasonic AG-W1 the image is framed perfectly. However my AG-W1 stops playback every 30 seconds or so, so I need to use the NV-FS200. Any idea what the problem is and a possible fix? Thanks!

Those are not PAL tapes.
Perhaps NTSC, or some other exotic that's quasi-PAL or quasi-NTSC?

Another possibility is the tapes have recording issues, can't lock down the recording mode.

Yeah it could be an NTSC tape which makes the deck output PAL60 (assuming the deck supports it), I've gotten a similar effect from playing NTSC tapes on our Panasonic NV-HS1000. The Datavideo TBC squeezes the PAL-60 signal into a normal pal signal which obviously doesn't look very good, I presume the AVT would do something similarr.

Yep. You're right. Despite having PAL labeling all over the packaging and the tapes themselves I finally figured out that they were indeed NTSC tapes. Geez. Thanks for the responses!

Just curious, what capture device are you using with the BM Media Express capture software? Intensity shuttle?
