Just wondering what others experiences are with this unit, I've kept mine pretty much fixed on the defaults since Proc Amp was fairly weak/useless in this thing.

Just using it as a TBC, but I'm wondering are any of the defaults bad and worth changing?

Since I have a SignVideo PA-200, and DataVideo TBC-3000, I rarely used the AVT-8710 proc amp.

But, once upon a time, 10-15 years ago, I did use infrequently. Since it was pretty limited, I mostly used it to drain all color from B&W videos. At most, maybe tweak +1/+2 or -1/-2 if brightness was off, when going direct to DVD recorder (LSI JVC). I keep all values reset to 0 these days.

I only used the AVT-8710 proc amp for my hobby videos that I can remember, it was never powerful enough for my restoration projects work.

And since we're talking proc amps, I'll add this too: I also have the Elite Video BVP4+, but it can be too powerful, the opposite of this TBC. The BVP4 also has some side effects that can degrade already-good video, much like the ES10/15. So it's only used when required, when the net effect is improved video, digital artifacts are better than the analog damage.

Thanks LS, I'm just going to keep them at the defaults but I will keep in mind it's good for fixing brightness.

I've had a few things that were really bright just have to remember to turn it back to the default when I'm done.
