Viability of cheap VHS capture

I have to check the serial number but I know my GE is from 1999.

So after some searching I found a used JVC S7800U VCR. It has a built in TBC, video stabilizer, and S-Video inputs. I’ll do some test captures when it arrives and report back. Wink

So I got the VCR and while I am still tinkering with it I’m a bit disappointed because image wise this is softer than the General Electric VCR I’ve been using. Maybe that’ll just have to be my compromise if using S-VIDEO eliminates the glitches.
