I am in the process of going through my old VHS tapes and trying to put them in digital format. I recorded some broadcast TV from 2002 like the gold medal hockey game from the 2002 winter Olympics along with other broadcast television from ESPN classics.

When trying to play these back to capture, I see a bunch of interference (what looks like it needs tracking adjustment) on the recorded broadcast. Was there a signal added to broadcasts to interfere with recording programs?

When I play VHS videos that I bought, I don't see this interference. I've ensured that the heads on the VCR I'm using are clean.

If a signal was added to the broadcast signal, is there a signal processor or way that it can be removed? Thanks.

That which may be known of God is evident within man, for God has shown it to them, so that they are without excuse. (Romans 1:19-20)
