I am writing to you guys because this is a very strange problem and I have already tried everything logical to no avail.
I am capturing VHS tapes using a JVC SR-S365U VCR with S-Video then using a Pillips DVDR3475 as a TBC pass-through and capturing everything using s-video using an AverTV Volar max usb device. When I play video on the VCR it looks over saturated but them when I capture the video fix the colors and burn a DVD they are over saturated again!!! I went back and desaturated the video so much that the colors look dull, then I bun a second DVD and it looks over saturated again!!!!!!!!!!
I did reset the colors of both my Computer monitor and the TV. If I play the same DVD on my computer it looks fine, in the TV it is always oversaturated no matter what I do.
Take a look at the pictures and tell me what you think, I do not know what else to do.

Do other tapes have the same effect ? this tape is a copy from the original ? or is it an original recording ?
Why are your images 4160x2340? You can't use that frame size for DVD.
Can't help with images that have gone through this much processing. And no one is going to try to work with still images. Don't you know how to make and post a short, unfiltered video sample? If you don't know, ask.- My sister Ann's brother
**If I play the video using the same DVD player connected to the TV and the computer I see it fine on the computer but oversaturated on the TV.

a copied recording will not get that better i am afraid...
You have the the U model ? i just took a peek at the manual, it has a pro function > recording timecode for editing.... you tried the JVC directly to capture from?
this should not inprove the image quality i guess... but your JVC looks like an advanced machine.
it has a non drop frame mode ? EP mode is not suitable for video capture is my guess, manuallibs has an exstensive service manual with much info
in an other part of Videohelp i just read the JVC SR-S365U has no TBC.

Other tapes look fine in the VCR it is just this one, however, I am capturing the videos using AmarecTV and fixing the colors as they are being captured, so when I playback the video on my computer it already look fine. But when I record the DVD the video comes out oversaturated again. it seems to happen only in the TV. I am thinking it might have something to do with the NTSC palette?
I am going to capture another video and burn it to DVD and see what happens.

On which device and output is your "tv" ? different outputs may have different "qualities" due to their nature, composite, component, s-video, HDMI.
the recording is a Super-VHS recording ? recorded on the same VCR ?
