Hello,

I have been looking for quality VCR models to look after in order to digitise my SECAM tapes in the best quality possible. I have tried looking at the buying guide but I'm rather looking for anything that can give a clean image for what I have specifically. Anything with either a TBC (not looking for anything more than Line TBC), or a Transcoder (SECAM/PAL kind of thing).

I didn't really know where to put this so I'm sorry if I posted in the wrong category.

Thank you

With my JVC HR-S9500MS (ouput SECAM) and Hauppauge USB-Live 2 (with drivers configured to SECAM) I am able to capture SECAM tapes. Other combination of transcoding the signal at the output of the VCR (and configuration of the card) are possible.

Yes, important: in JVCs DIGITAL T.B.C./N.R. is not active reading a SECAM tape

I've read the links provided, thank you very much for your replies. Only thing I'm curious about is, is there a difference between the HR-S9500MS and the HR-S7700MS mentioned in the other thread? Are there other variants of these two that would perhaps have the same features?

Thank you

All or most of the JVCs should have been produced in the multistandard variant (MS). More difficult to find because mainly dedicated to SECAM countries

To answer lollo2 the tbc seem to work for secam-L tapes according to my experiment (with pal output enabled). Retails tapes (a.k.a secam-B) might be another story though

VHS SECAM is only one standard whether recorded or pre-recorded, There is a hybrid camcorder version called MESECAM which is not a native SECAM, The letter designation is for broadcasting over the air not for VHS tapes:

There are six varieties of SECAM, according to each of the broadcast system it was used with:

SECAM-L: Used only in France, Luxembourg (only RTL9 on channel 21 from Dudelange) and TÚlÚ Monte-Carlo transmitters in the south of France.
SECAM-B/G: Used in parts of the Middle East, former East Germany, Greece and Cyprus
SECAM-D/K: Used in the Commonwealth of Independent States and parts of Eastern Europe (this is simply SECAM used with the D and K monochrome TV transmission standards) although most Eastern European countries have now migrated to other systems.
SECAM-H: Around 1983–1984 a new color identification standard ("Line SECAM or SECAM-H") was introduced in order to make more space available inside the signal for adding teletext information (originally according to the Antiope standard). Identification bursts were made per-line (like in PAL) rather than per-picture. Very old SECAM TV sets might not be able to display colour for today's broadcasts, although sets manufactured after the mid-1970s should be able to receive either variant.
SECAM-K: The standard used in France's overseas possessions (as well as African countries that were once ruled by France) was slightly different from the SECAM used in Metropolitan France. The SECAM standard used in Metropolitan France used the SECAM-L and a variant of the channel information for VHF channels 2–10. French overseas possessions and many French-speaking African countries use the SECAM-K1 standard and a mutually incompatible variant of the channel information for VHF channels 4-9 (not channels 2–10).
SECAM-M: Between 1970 and 1991, SECAM-M was used in Cambodia and Vietnam (Hanoi and cities North).

Based on this post here, I didn't know there were SECAM VCRs with TBC. I don't own a PAL VCR, so I'm unsure if a SECAM tape will work.
