I have an ATI 600 USB but wanted to try out an osprey 260e as it has some interesting features.

Using DVK-200 to generate color bars and the 260e config utilities (all connections are S-vid).

I settled on ES10 on dark/light NR enabled. Now a control:

Finally adding in Elite Video BVP

With that fun done I added the DVK back into the chain:

JVC>ES10>DVK>BVP>260e

In this chain, I can utilize the DVK freeze frame functionality to make adjustments. JVC R3 disabled, TBC on, analyze on/auto
JVC>ES10>DVK>BVP>260e

I had a monitor (dell 2408WFP) arrive damaged so I've not calibrated the display but subjectively the BVP just kinda makes everything look better (I played with Shrek2 going through ES10>DVK>BPV>ATI 600 and felt the same).

However, the BVP clearly needs some adjustment (wipe is not fully leaving the left side) and the histogram looks funky on the white bar. Furthermore, the roll off is softer on the ends and black/whites may be blowing out according to the histogram. Ultimately the box may not be bringing anything to the table that modern vdub/avisynth processing cant do.

The other fun thing I did with DVK>260e was individually test all of my cables. All looked very similar though I did see little more noise on one type vs the other. Aside from monitor calibration I also still need to make up some chassis ground cables for all of the components before I start capturing for real.

My BVP also has the left vertical split too far within the frame to easily mask.
Though itís a side note of your post, I have my BVP4+ at a shop for scrutiny and hopefully adjusted.

AFAIK, there is only one adjustment internally and it affects right side scan/sync.

Where are you having your unit serviced? I'm thinking the screen split pot will need replaced to remedy the issue. On my unit it's a Mouser 500k

Just FYI I can't edit the original post for some reason but FYI the copy/paste job on these descriptions is out of order as well... ES10 was AFTER JVC so:

DVK>JVC>ES10>260e
