The JVC SR VS30U is JVC's best VCR for dubbing as it has a Firewire out port so that you can capture the video/audio directly to your hard drive.Originally Posted by ejai
It also has the standard S-VHS out and RCA jacks. The unit can also transfer video directly to and from the built in DV deck.

There it is for all to see, spending more does not get a more reliable machine.

My biggest problem with the M10 is the video looks too soft and the dark areas aren't true black, more like resin black. What I like most about the M10 is it's noise filtering on some older tapes.
Thanks Zorankarapancev I will look into that.Do unto others....with a vengeance!

I agree, The Panasonic looks sharp most of the time but it has a chroma problem and that is one of the reasons I sort a different recorder. I have learned one thing and that is that using the composite instead of svideo on the Panasonic looks better in terms of chroma. I'm not sure if that will work for everyone but it does for me. Also the Panasonic's filters take away the detail but will sustain the sharpness.
I use a video enhancer to help get the picture quality I need.Do unto others....with a vengeance!
I need to convert a series from videotape to DVD. It's 170 episodes and I want the quality as good as possible, but I probably wouldn't do much else in the way of videotape transfers. So how much better would the copies be with an enhancer? Would the recordings be enough better to justify the cost? They are in EP and so are not very good as far as sharpness, is that adjustable with an enhancer. What's a good brand? That's an overload of questions I know, but I've never used an enhancer and wonder if it's worth it for how little I have to do.
ejai, check your mailbox... I PM'd you yesterday with a suggestion.

Try this: connect your new VCR to a Panasonic DVD recorder. Take the output from the Panasonic and connect it to a JVC DVD recorder. This way you will be able to use the Panasonic's TBC and eventually to correct the video signal. See what will happen, you can't lose anything...
I tried that as a quick and dirty method to adjust the black level. It added noticeable digital processing noise because the signal is being passed through two complete digital video processing circuits (one in the Panasonic, and one in the JVC). If the VCR also has digital signal processing (many do) that's three...
Too late, I took the new vcr back for a refund. I am now going to get a more better model. 8)Do unto others....with a vengeance!
