I know I've been making a few posts on here lately over several things.
I'm now in the process of capping full length recorded VHS tapes. As I'm recording in Vdub, frames are fine in the beginning except I see the current error going up 1 ms every couple of seconds and VT adjust going down every couple of minutes. The more VT adjust goes down, I get a dropped frame. I have no clue if this is normal for capping but just want to make sure. The recording is not finished as of this post so I can't confirm if the audio is off sync or not. The timing graph is on and I don't see any "errors", etc.
Don't know if I need to adjust timing settings in Vdub or what, I shouldn't blame my equipment b/c I have [almost] DigitalFAQ recommended hardware (specs below). I also don't know if it's my audio hardware/settings. The audio is going straight from my VCR's audio out via RCA, then converting it to 3.5mm directly plugged into my sound card's "Line In" port.
During recording, I have Preview mode turned on, enable audio playback turned off, capping using Huffyuv
and PCM audio @ 48000hz. Though the audio playback is enabled through my sound card in XP (not Vdub), I don't know if I need to mute that.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Prime Image TBC/Freeze II w/ DTL set to HIGH
EDIT: Yep, it's out of sync from the second half onward of the capture (2:45 hrs total, 15 frames dropped).
The picture is clean and the Freeze II should be doing a good job on the sync (I know it's not a recommended TBC on here), probably my audio settings or method? It's got to be a setting issue IMO. No other programs are open besides VDub.
