Hello,

Looking for a processor / device with this chip in it so that I can watch/transfer LDs and VHS, but I am wondering if there is a lower end (cheaper) unit with this chip in it. There is a computer capture card from Magewell that has it, but they do not fully implement the 3D comb filter and TBC capabilities.

I plan to buy a Lumagen in the future anyways to do 2:35:1 with my projector, but even then, I don't think I need to go all the way to a 2144.

Thanks much

DVDO Edge and Duo also has the ADV7800 chipset but there is more to it than just the chipset. For Laserdiscs, 2144 is the only Video Processor with zero artifacts and analog video suitable smooth video scaling. I would at least recommend a Edge or Duo for Y/C separation and de-interlacing and a Radiance XS or newer for upscaling. There is also the eval board + Radiance XS route but research its shortcomings before you invest into this.
