    The BMD products work OK if you have a strong clean broadcast complaint signal. Most VCR and camcorders from Best Buy will not give you that for VHS tapes. The Intensity Shuttle needs a TBC more often then not. I use an Intensity Shuttle for playback but I use an ADVC 110 for capturing VHS tapes. You would expect a little better from BMD when you consider the price of their products.

    You might do better with a cheap USB dongle and a chip dedicated to SD capture. Avoid EZCap.

    With or without TBC, Blackmagic has infamous known is with SD material.
    But with a better card, you'll still need TBC.
