I've got two VCRs that are giving me grief with playing back VHS tapes. I've used the Elgato Video Capture device for a LOT of movies but have decided to re-capture all footage from VHS as the output quality is garbage. So, I got a Dazzle DV-Bridge analag to digital converter to use with firewire. However, I've noticed a major problem with all of my newly captured videos with what seems to be Head Switching Noise that INCREASES with the playback of my VHS tapes. After a certain period of time, my videos look like this: The problem increases over time. From the above image you can see clearly head switching noise (which I'm fine with) but a portion of what would be the very top of the image is now brought down to the bottom part of the video. Why is that? If I stop the VHS playback and press play again, the problem is fixed; I have two VCRs, a Samsung and Goldstar. Before I was using the Samsung and Elgato and I did not see any of this 'image shift' for any of my videos from the 10+ VHS tapes I recorded. Now I'm trying to use either Vidi or Quicktime 7 Pro to capture to a raw format and the image is really messed up. I tried using Elgato AGAIN, using the same tape and running the video for about 30 minutes and the problem does NOT seem to be as bad in elgato as it does via firewire: Elgato: Firewire: But again, stopping the video and playing it again readjusts the picture and everything looks fine. Could this be a problem with my VCRs? Or the tape itself?
