I have attached a video file as an example. I'm playing a Video8 tape on a SONY DCR-TRV740, it has TBC and DNR. My capture device is ADVC 110. This problem occurs via analog and digital outputs.
The solution is simple, eject and reinsert tape. The video will come up fine again. This only happens on some tapes, so I assume the problem lies with the tape and not the camcorder.
I tried using a cleaning tape several times but to no avail. Would getting a SONY EV-S5000 VCR with TBC solve this problem. Logic says no since DCR-TRV740 has TBC too. I thought TBC was supposed to prevent this kind of things from happening.
Does anyone has a solution?
