Why should you buy this product? Beware of imitations, the adapter is the backup enabler that works with all types of unstabilized analog video signals. Many other products claim that they work but the do not! These other products are limited in their power to handle many different VHS and DVD qualities because they are factory set to handle only 2 or 3 fixed situations. This product can be custom adjusted to overcome specific VHS condition, or can be switched to auto mode. We have tested this product with Panasonic, Toshiba, Sony, Philips, and Pioneer dvd recorders, and it has worked fine. We have tested it with the newest dvd movies and it has never failed. With Blank DVD-R discs so cheap these days, this is a must have. This small microprocessor chip is in compact casing with Composite and S-Video outputs. All you do is connect the output into the box, and out of the box into the recording device. It offers excellent picture quality.
| Frequently Asked Questions|
Q: I have a huge collection of VHS tapes that I want to back up to DVD before they fall apart. When I try to record to my DVDR, it flashes a message that it can't record. Will the adapter help me with my problem?|
A: Yes, the adapter will enhance the VHS video signal to enable your DVDR to record your tapes.
Q: If I buy the adapter is that all I need to record my videos?
A: You will need to have a recording device, a VCR, DVD Recorder or Computer DVD authoring system. The adapter is not a recorder.
Q: How is the adapter powered?
A: The adapter is powered by an AC adapter that is included with your purchase.
Q: The adapter is a "Video Stabilizer". What does that mean.
A: This term has been established to describe devices that remove artifacts and distortions. It is not an accurate description of what the device really does. The adapter removes artifacts and distorted signals that can confuse a VCR and make the VCR unstable. For example, the signal coming out of a DVD player is rock solid. If you try to record it on a VCR, you will get an unwatchable "unstable" picture. By removing the distortions and artifacts from the video, the VCR can properly lock on to the signal.
Q: I have some really old video tapes that are almost unwatchable because they are deteriorating with age. Will the adapter fix them up?
A: The adapter can enhance the video signal to some extent but it is a content backup enabler, not a restoration device. It can not fix up a video that is severely degraded. There are special restoration devices designed to improve poor quality tapes.
Q: I have a combo VHS/DVD unit. Will the adapter work with my system?
A: The answer is "yes, but"... You'll have to use a separate playback unit. When you buy a combo unit there is an implication that it will make the process easier. The truth is exactly the opposite. It can make the process difficult or even impossible because there is no way to access the internal circuity and to connect the adapter between the "player" and the "recording" part of the combo.
Q: I have a PC with a DVD burner. Can I use the adapter to record my tapes and DVD's to the DVD burner?
A: Yes, if you have a video digitizer card and DVD authoring software installed on your computer. There are lots of video digitizers on the market. Most of them come with authoring software that is adequate to create DVD's.
The adapter should be used in the domestic USA only: 90 days parts and labour. It does not carry any international warrantee.
