If you want to allow more noise (often confused with "detail"), you can put the JVC picture mode to EDIT. The JVC NR is a good balance while retaining true detail.
Ah, good to know. That is a possibility, when it came to the Panasonic result having more "detail" in my eyes. It was the additional grain, which I do remember was especially noticeable in the dark background.
Still, thanks for reassuring that the capture clip looks to have no obvious issues and seems to be standard quality for such a setup. Thankfully it seems like the VCR heads aren't dirty for the time being
