I'm new to video conversion but I've done alot of research and invested alot of money and I'm still not able to get very good results. I've built a 3.0 Gig P4 with ATI 9600 AIW Pro, I've also bought a canon optura 40 digital camcorder.(tried to convert with both). My problem is distortion on the bottom 5% of the captured video. It looks like a tracking problem with the VCR but I've tried 3 different older VCR's and 1 new Sanyo (Wal-Mart) specail. Is there a better VCR, I've concidered buying a JVC with S-Video but I've been told that since the original tapes are normal VHS that it wouldn't make any difference. Any Ideas?????????
