A question for the technical people out there. I recently bought a Sony HX900 primarily to archive the huge number of VHS recordings I have. The problem I have is that on 75% of tapes that I playback to record onto the hard drive I get a flickering white line across the bottom of the screen, which is then made worse when the recording is dubbed to a disc. It almost looks like the tracking is very slightly off. However on playback from the VCR direct to the TV I dont get it. Also I have tried 2 different VCRs, 3 different scart cables and even rf into the DVD recorder and they all give this line. Even with the VCR well away from my amp/all mains cables etc. Its almost like the DVD recorder cant quite cope with a video signal in (sky into the scart socket of the recorder is fine). I have (after a battle) arranged to send the recorder back and get a replacement n case it is faulty. But if anyone can explain what else may be causing this and give me a simpler solution it would be much appreciated.
