Thread: black horizontal line
The problem isn't "a black line half way up the screen". It's that the top portion of the picture is appearing below the bottom portion -- ie, the vertical sync wasn't working properly. You can partially fix that
but you'd be better off capturing again without that problem. Try a different VCR, manually adjust the tracking, or a different capture device. That may also clear up a lot of the other related problems in the cap too.
You have an PAL/NTSC problem too. Maybe that's the whole problem. You're playing an NTSC tape and catpuring PAL? PAL60? Many capture devices don't support PAL60.
