I might be able to get my hands on an AVT-1660. Does anyone have any experience about this product?

The AVT-1660 is used to convert signal between PAL - NTSC - SECAM... so its a video converter. AVT-1660 is supposed to have TBC functionality build into it. As the AVT-1660 is able to convert from a signal to another, I was thinking using it to convert from PAL to PAL being able to use the TBC functionality, if that is even possible.

Or like many other products is this one trash?

No.

The 1660 uses EOL "black" era Cypress chips (black AVT-8710, etc).

Some Cypress converters are also not what you think. Most have cyclical errors in NTSC modes, and on some (where TBC actually present) it's only active on PAL<>NTSC, not "passthrough" PAL>PAL or NTSC>NTSC.

When converters do suffice, there are often quality drawbacks.
