    That's where the tbc comes in. Analog video is not picky about time, but digital is. So if op were going to get serious about this, the first necessary purchase is a time-based corrector.

    Unpaid advertisement, anyway. At least it's a step up from the people who bring back five-years-dead threads or try to sneak url's into a sentence. I appeciate the fact that s/he isn't insulting my...
