  1. I've done some searching and I can't find anyone with a similar problem so I decided to make a post.

    I am copying VHS tapes using Virtualdub and a GV2-USB with the settings from the video linked below:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sn_TDa9zY1c

    I have also tried the setting listed here:
    http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/video-capture/7427-capturing-virtualdub-settings.html

    The video part of the transfer works great and I have had luck getting the audio to sync; however, my issue is the audio gets scrambled in a couple of different spots of the recording. I confirmed the VHS tape was fine by playing it and checking the audio at the spots that were scrambled when recording. I'm not sure how to exactly described the scrambled sound, but sometimes it has a distorted noise in the background that comes and goes while some other parts of the recording are completely scrambled (kind of like a static/echo sound). The scrambled audio can last anywhere from a minutes to ten minutes out of a 100 minute recording. It also tends to happen towards the end of the recording. I have also tried other VHS tapes and had similar issues with the audio. I've tried playing around with the settings in Virtualdub, but have had no luck.

    Since the VHS audio itself is fine, I'm assuming this is an issue with my Virtualdub settings. Has anyone else had this issue or can anyone recommend better settings and/or another program to use to get around this issue?

    Thanks for your help.

    I gave up on capturing with VDub ages ago. If I need to capture lossless I go with DScaler.

    If you using the old VirtualDub By Avery Lee, maybe you should try VirtualDub2 By Shekh

  5. Thank you all for the responses. Sorry it took me so long to respond. I have uploaded a clip of a portion of a VHS with the audio issue that I'm facing. This is the noise that seems to come and go at various parts of the recording. I hope this clip will help you understand the issue I am trying to describe. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how to remove this audio issue.

    I would say keep trying decoders until you get what you want.
