    Hi all,

    I'm just starting out with transferring my old VHS tapes to DVD.

    My main query is a question of buying the right hardware to achieve the best quality capture.


    should I....


    1. Buy the Canopus ADVC110/ADVC100 Analogue to Digital convertor

    AND buy an S-VHS VCR - with TBC
    Iive seen two models
    JVC HR-S7965EK
    PANASONIC NVSV121EBS ( a new model just released)
    any thoughts on these?


    OR SHOULD I ....


    2. Buy the canopus ADVC300 convertor in the hope that the TBC will clean up any jitters (rather than using a VCR with TBC) and just use my current VCR. My current VCR is a 1989 Mitsubishi HSB-11. Its a bullet proof bit of kit that still works well but it certainly has not got TBC on it.

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    thanks

    pete

    IMO the ADVC converters are excellent, and either method should give you good results (assuming the VHS recordingfs are ok).
    I think that the built in TBC on a VCR is likely to be less configurable and of lower quality than that in the ADVC300 and therefore the ADVC300 is probably the better of the 2 options. Also IMO the newer VCR's are just not as good as the old ones as many companies (including Sony) just by in OEM units as they don't sell that many any more!

    Mark.
