That thing won't clean up video. What it advertises itself as being is highly misleading. If you want to improve the visual quality of your VHS tapes, this isn't going to do it, no. Waste of money.

That device is one of those cheap "copy protection removers" that usually pretends to be a timebase corrector.

Devices like this have recently been discussed at length at http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/show...8710-1853.html as well as a few other posts I can't find immediately. These posts are all in the restoring and capturing forums here on this site.

At $130 plus shipping, that thing is ungodly expensive and a total waste of money. It claims to be a TBC, but the price point is too low to cover the components and still make profit.
