The only reason I chimed in was because the OP didn't specify "free". And the free tools are free, dollars-wise, but not as cheap, time-wise, as you seem to have found, DB83.The only 'plus' (and that could be equally adapted for 704*576) is that all tools are free whereas many of those that are now promoted are not.

Hi Alwyn, I spent all morning messing about about with Magix Movie Edit Pro Premium & I could not crop exact as you did, I used the exact same settings you posted but maybe because it's a demo version I always got what looked like 4:3 but Mediainfo said it was 16:9.
Because I could not get the crop right I used what you posted 701 x 492 with position 8 left and 42 top
The tape I bought is a double tape with 4 episodes on each & it would be great to find a simple free program to achieve what everyone else is achieving, I simply do not have the knowledge or skill, I'm trying what everyone is posting & highly appreciate all the help.
I'm back capturing at the moment, if there are any suggestions how I can achieve your results in a simpler fashion that would be great
I'm going to try avstodvd after the capture & see how that goes.
Once again thank you everybody for your help.
The sample in post #10 is RGB. You should be capturing as YUY2 or YV12, not RGB. You'll get smaller and more accurate files.
