I wasn't shure which category this falls into,but here is some pics of the unit I found at a thrift store..Anyone know if it is worth splicing into the capture chain?..or can it cause more trouble than it is worth?..Not sure if it is Pro, or Pro-sumer equipment...After testing,the two "Pots" on the Right end are Video "Niosy or Dirty"..and it only has RCA type connectors....My Video capture set-up has All S-Video Connections,But my AV_Toolbox does have RCA Ins and Outs,as well as my Mitsubishi HU200U,and my ATI AIW 9600 XT has S-VHS Ins...But Pre Capture filtering is Good??

From an internet search, it appears to be a pro-sumer level device, intended to work solely with a stereo system, most likely for "improving" VHS audio or something. But, really I couldn't find anything much on the device.
But with only RCA composite it would be something that was more for VHS or maybe even early video game systems, like the NES.
The following users thank tomswift for this useful post:
Thanks tomswift, I too did a search,and as with a lot of late 80's to early 90's Video and Audio equipment,Info is Scarce at best..This unit was definately made for the Video signal only,and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if it would help in the "Pre-VHS-Filter-Capture" workflow, or if it's an old,outdated box of useless flustration?..Still haven't tried it with my current system...and I am afraid of possibly frying my AV Toolbox and/or ATI AIW Card.
Maybe it's good, maybe it's not. It does look like one of the better composite units.
However, I'd much rather have pure s-video connections.
As far as it frying for AVT-8710 or ATI AIW cards, it's not very likely at all.
Thank you L.S., I will give it a try,I can try the unit in between VCR and AVTOOL, or in between AVTOOL and AIW card, However yes,my current connections are ALL S-Video W/O the Video sharper, Also the two last pots on the Video Sharper are "noisy" and I hope that's just dirty pots that need cleaning with LPS electronics cleaner
