[QUOTE=cholla;2595434]I think you have it .The conversion of the analog audio on the VHS tapes to digital audio on the DVD disc is not working.
Probably the best way would be using a good capture card in your computer.
Go into that from your VHS player.
If you search the forum you should be able to find out quite a bit about this.
Then you could demux the video file . Then load the audio track into Audacity . Amplify it if you still needed to.
Check out this YouTube :
Then mux the audio track back in. Hopefully the sync would be OK.[/QUOTE]
I’m still a bit confused, I thought the conversion of analogue audio is fundamentally the same principle if I recorded it from a different source since I’m (re)recording via the traditional SCART?
The only reason why I ask this question was a mate of mine sent me a DVD copy of Destination Docklands and In Concert: Lyon (1986) (Both by Jean Michel Jarre) a few weeks ago. They were recorded on a different recorder unit and to my surprise the DVD copy is surprisingly more faithful of the VHS.
I did try via capture card, (Can’t remember what the name of it is, it was a cheap one anyway) but to the same disappointing results as recording it to DVD
Why is it not working though? Is this a faulty component or something? It’s interesting as Vistron is a no name, supermarket-esque brand of recorder, it is assembled more using a concoction of equally no name parts from around the world. It is assembled in China, but parts have been brought in from Korea, etc…
Any idea how long cheap and cheerful recorders last? I’m thinking of the laser in the burner itself, has a sneak feeling that will wear down quicker…
