Is ADVC-300 TBC and noise filtering issuffiencient for good VHS captruting?
Or ADVC-100/110 and VCR with TBC/DNRplus Avisynth fiters would do the job in a more efficient way?

manono, thanks for sharing your experience.
I am still experimenting with my old VHS tapes (which are in a quite good condition), using ADVC-100 and JVC VCR with TBC/DNR.
I do not like that DNR is over filtering video, making it too soft. The line sync is not bad without TBC. I rather have a bit noisier but sharper video (on my JVC VCR no way/option to use only TBC, without DNR, both Off or ON). I was even thinking of getting ADVC-300, but thanks to your advise, will stay with ADVC-100 and play with AviSynth. I keep video interlaced, playing mainly with FFT3DFilter by Fizick and NeatVideo (veeery slow).
I would appreciate for advsing basic AviSynth filters you use.
Yeah, I have a Panasonic whose DNR is separate from the TBC. I usually use DFTTest from within QTGMC (which does some filtering of its own). And you can use FFT3DFilter, which I'm also fond of, from within QTGMC. MCTemporalDenoise is said to be very good.
I do use the ADVC-300 to set the brightness and contrast before beginning capping, but that's about all of its features I use. But more of that is also done in AviSynth later on.
I would not say it is 'useless'
I have had some good results with the line tbc that this unit has - I do not own a full frame tbc.
Quite often it will depend on the quality of the VCR and the tapes. 'Rubbish in' invariably means 'Rubbish out'
