Aside from some requested holds, and a few system builds, everything should be shipping to everybody this week.

I disagree, it's ideal for some tests. For example, when you want gradients or lines.

That exact post was written over a decade ago, and sorely needs updates. Hauppauge makes production changes, and even recycles model numbers, so the "model" of card can be somewhat meaningless. The...

It just fully depends on multiple factors. I'm just stating that the dogma of "throwing away 50% of motion data" is not accurate, and 50/59.94 is not always better. To get there, data is...

That's a good idea. A list of "easily available yet bad" cards shouldn't take as much time as a listing of good cards (with all the caveats, with all that is involved, all the variables). I shall add...

Converting Laserdisc to HD will look like crap if using cheap HDMI dongles. For it to be a quality upscale, it needs to be done with Avisynth. Capture the LD as native 720x480 interlaced 4:2:2 video.

Cables go bad, can pick up RF. Some were never good. I toss cables each year for this reason. Part of the "problem" is that I always have to reconnect cables, different workflows. That causes some...

Yes and no.

Part of what makes the ATI 600 USB quality is the fact that it uses a certain TI chipset. But beware, that model of TI chips has variations, sub-versions, latter iterations, and those...

1. Yes, QTGMC best, and Hybrid makes it easier than Avisynth or Vapoursynth directly. But note that 50p vs 25p is not merely something you choose on preference, nor even quality, but output factors....

Eric-Jan is correct here, just make 2 tapes. However, be careful, as some VCRs are dumb, and will snap off the tape on rewind, since a leader is no longer present.

Be wary of splicing tape, when...

Where did it come from? There are common 600 issues, due to using the wrong AV plug. I've seen this way too often on eBay listings, comes with random cords. Sometimes not even something that fits it,...

The RT2500 is a DV+MPEG NLE card from 20+ years ago.

And I wanted one, 20+ years ago, before I got the AIW. The Matrox was way too costly at $1k+, so I waited for the AIW, which was only $350 or...

On paper, this is an interesting project. And if it works as theorized, it will allow for better raw extraction from videotapes. Not just VHS, but others.

Since you get same results on more than one VCR, it's physical tape damage. Hard to fix in hardware. At best,...

eBay is usually the worst place to get anything, lots of lying sellers. (However, are you PAL, and did that come from VCRshop?)
