Any idea what kind: 2 line, single field, full frame? Just curious. I'm trying to capture to the computer old tapes c. 1987 and I get massive frame drops. Doesn't happen on new tapes so I have to assume sync problems. That means I need a TBC. BUT...if the new standalones have good TBCs in them, then I can forgo that route and instead record to to the standalone providing that the TBC is good enough to handle sync errors on old tapes. Looks like I'll have to run around to the stores with some test tapes and some DVD-RWs and see for myself...

for want of it being a facetious answer... a pertty durn good one!


seriously.. yes, those old tapes are causing a loss of the sync-loss (another good reason nowdays it's foolish to waste time on using a PC to capture Analog tapes) and you'll need a TBC to fix it..


as for how good.. well, the E80 did an execellent job of cleaning up/stablizing my MST3K KTMA tapes... wonky at best, third gen at worst and nary a (visible) frame drop nor audio de-sync.
