Hi,
I have done a number of A/B tests with multiple cable combos and this new (to me) TBC-1000 is only giving me 1 channel of audio. Do you know if anyone repairs these, and if so, how much would a repair like this cost?
Thanks
Shayne

Do not use a TBC-1000 to process audio. It is unnecessary, and potentially degrades your audio quality. Bypass it, go directly from VCR to capture card. The delay of the TBC video (video:audio ratio) is 1 frame, 1/60th sec, about 17ms, negligible.

All TBC-1000s and VP299s (distribution amp, distro amp) are having caps issues now. Your VP299 board in the 1000 is surely bad. It happens, often.

Repairs will probably be a few hundred. Lots of caps to fix, lots of time involved.

Welcome Shayne!

+1 on Diopter_Doctor. He repaired one for NIN Ryan. He also made me a couple cables to bypass the distro amp entirely on one of my backup 1000s. So there's lots of options.

Thanks for posts, fellas.

If anyone needs any refurb on these units, just PM me.

There are a few tricky spots when working on these units. I'm currently putting together a video of doing an entire refurb.
