"6 heads" is just marketing and the S-Video output probably isn't "real", for what it's worth. (Did Samsung make/rebadge S-VHS decks anywhere in the world?) It sounds like it's just a low-quality...

The All-in-Wonder is indeed a capable GPU. That was the whole idea: graphics + capture card all-in-one (...der).

Have you encountered this? In my experience, it would only be baked-in if the VHS-C camera had a TBC turned on during playback. (There were S-VHS-C camcorders with line TBC, so this is a possibility.)
