I finally have a solid workflow for capturing using the ATI 600 USB and an older Lenovo T500 Core2 Duo laptop running XP (after trying many computers and seeing all kinds of odd behavior with Windows 7 and 10). I'm in complete agreement that XP was necessary for reliable capture and I'm good with that.

My question, is there the same XP recommendation for filtering, format conversion, post-processing? For a variety of reasons (faster CPU, color calibration, more storage, more comfy workspace, better audio) I'd really prefer to do post on my primary Windows 10 desktop PC. Virtual Dub and Avisynth are what I plan to use until I discover a reason to use anything else.

essentially, I am doing everything in Windows-10.

I am capturing with VirtualVCR and the venerable SAA7134 based Cinergy400 TV-Card using the S-Video input and an ES-10 to stabilize the timing.

Filtering is done via AVISynth and Preview via Virtualdub.

No issues with WIndows-10 so far.

I was so afraid of Windows 10 that I had only tried (and failed) capturing. So far what I've tried tonight works. Although what I've tried is very little.

No one can answer that question unless they know what your videos look like. Processing recommendations must be based on the specific video problems at hand. Wasn't your hardware question answered earlieer? I thouight some posts about that. But I could be wrong.


Windows 10 is a nightmare, even if it's just for web browsing. Microsoft is working against you. XP is sought because it's still stable, and Win7 isn't far behind. Still, you can use Win10 if you're willing to put up with some debugging and workarounds. I use SoundBlaster Audigy sound cards. Everyone has an opinion on audio cards, and 1000 users = 1000 different opinions. Monitor calibration: a color probe and dedicated software package are the only way to calibrate PC monitors. They're also used to calibrate TV's. Try browsing products from Spyder and XRite. Note that some of the latest calibration packages won't work on XP, so check specs carefully.

I really shouldn't post twice with similar questions. Please see my latest post 10439 with actual captures and my thoughts here - Filters/scripts for US broadcast TV VHS conversions?
