I heard the Elgato EyeTV Hybrid (North America) also uses the same chipset. But...

I attached 2 pictures. The first is with the NV FS200, the second with the NV SV120 (wrong aspect ratio I know).

There are a few VCR repair shops in Italy, I'll try to send it to one of them.

Anyway, WHV tapes were usually not low grade tapes. In Italy they started...

Ok, here's a lossless clip.

This noise seems more like interference to me.

I received the VCR and I'm very unsatisfied with it. There's way more noise, especially chroma noise, even though less grain. The only picture setting that makes sense is the "edit" mode.

Usually every brand has their own hit and miss models.

As far as I know Sony never produced VCRs with features such as the TBC, or even S-VHS support with S Video out. I don’t think it’s accurate...

So, if I record on HDD or DVD using the EH55, would I get no 704 padding? I already record in mpeg2 so it wouldn’t make a difference.
