You may recall I've not been entirely happy with my efforts to capture VHS - not great image quality, and some audio/video sync issues - and I've been trying to finally nail down whether it's the Belkin USB thingy or the capture settings/software I'm using. In my heart of hearts, I think I know it's the Belkin USB thingy (hence my other thread on Canopus configuration) but I'm just trying to avoid a) throwing away the £50 I spent, and b) spending another £100.
So I think I've come up with one final test, the outcome of which will provide me with irrefutable evidence. Or will it?
Right now, my VCR is just sitting there, attached only to my PC. Suppose I connect it to the aerial and pass the TV signal directly through from the VCR via the Belkin thingy, watching the TV on my PC. If that comes through in good quality, and with no audio/video sync problems, does that mean that the Belkin thingy is basically OK and I need to change my software/capture settings?
