I think the bad one is trying to interlace the video in any case I don't like it I like the other one that looks more uniform... I'm using a VHS SLV-R1000 and a Dazzle Hollywood Bridge to connect it to my pc firewire. Settings on Studio 9 is default and I can't change any other aspect of it for DV... and also on the dazzle is all default... The VHS is using the svideo output. What else do you need to know?
