VHS to DVD quality

Q: VHS to DVD quality

What programs do you use to convert VHS tapes to DVD that give very good quality on the playback on a TV ??

When I capture the VHS to the PC, the file plays great with excellent clarity (just as good as the original tape).

Yet, when I use software to put the file to DVD (for example, Windows 7 DVD maker, Pinnacle Studio 12, VHS2DVD,... ) they all create a lot of artifacts and distortion in the DVD... which wasn't in the original file played on the PC.

So, anyone have any ideas or leads?

Thanks a bunch!

Preferred Solution: VHS to DVD quality

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: VHS to DVD quality

Althought I edit all my HD video from my camera on my PC. I found the very best way to convert VHS to DVD was to actually use a console DVD recorder. Record each tape to a DVD. Then I have the raw, DVD "source" Then copy the DVD contents to my PC and edit if I want or backup. But since Tape is 1:1 playback speed only anyway, it's just far easier to record realtime straight to a DVD-R deck.

[edit]One problem with digitizing the VHS then converting to DVD is that you are goinf through two compressions which loses quality. The tape to DVD method one only compresses once directly to mpeg2 (DVD format) [/edit]

I'm having problems with my the graphics card on my laptop. It's an APU and I have picture and videos problems. Whenever I watch movies or look at pictures I see most things fuzzy, (if that makes any sense). I tried to watch a DVD and the video quality was unbearable. The most unbelievable thing is it affects picture quality. I can't do anything without poor quality pictures or videos. I have tried installing new drivers and all sorts of things. Is it me or is it my laptop?

My Laptop Specs:

AMD A6 Quad Core APU 1.5Ghz

I just bought an HP 21 black ink cartridge to use on my deskjet 3930 printer, I set my print properties to normal fast printing, with grayscale, and printed about 140 pages (some almost blank and all double spaced) of a text document, It stops at about 160page and completely runs out of ink. What is up with this stingy ink cartridge?
Anyone know of a better printer, that will yield more pages per cartridge?
My mother had an old brand that didn't print as fast as most modern printers, but you could get like 300pages with a single cartridge.

A:What's with Quality of HP Ink?

I own one ink jet printer but frankly with the prices of ink coming down, you need to look at laser printers. For my use Canon were always the least expensive cartridges and the longest lasting. Where I changed cartridges about every 2 months, with laser cartridges I do that yearly and the prices are only about double that of ink jet cartridges.

I purchased three wireless headsets and returned two of them in the last month. Two were made by creative (One the HS-1200) and the one I have now is the .Audio 995 by Plantronics. Every one of them had the same issue, the mic quality is awful. They even sound the same.

I honestly don't know where to look anymore, I've tried everything I can think of down to fiddling with settings under sound to installing drivers. My suspicion is its something to do with the USB drive not working with my sound card when it comes to the mic. I've plugged these headsets into every USB on my PC, around 6-8 different places.

When I go under sound/recording/Microphone/properties/advanced I cannot change the default format from the lowest setting. Yet when I plug in my jack headset I can change that to whatever I please. Is the problem that the mic is just set to low quality? Help would be much appreciated.

A:USB Mic quality.

Could the problem be related to my USB drives not working with the soundcard? How would I know if they weren't?

A:Mic quality

I have a computer based recording studio using Sonar. I would never use a "computer" mic or the built in computer sound card for any recordings.

You didn't list your system specs so we can't directly comment on your hardware. But, at a minimum I would suggest a good quality USB connected mic such as Samson or Shure, if you want to use the built in hardware for recording. Otherwise an external USB connected interface unit and a good mic with an XLR connector for the interface unit would be my recommendation.

What software are you using to convert from MP3? That is probably where your problem is. Look for some kind of quality setting in the software doing the conversion.

so is there a way to make them more better looking

Hi starcraftmaster.
Changing file format just results in gigo (garbage in-garbage out)

I build computers to sell on eBay and one of the most costly factors is my time. Lately, more and more, it's been spent troubleshooting only to find that it wasn't operator error, but rather manufacturer defects that are the problem. Cases, mostly, are worthless. I've tried lots of different brands, and the only common thread has been poor quality and manufacturer defects.

Does anyone know of a quality case company; maybe something not out of China? I would be willing to pay more, of course, to save myself the time of returning cases to the store time and again and troubleshooting only to find something is wrong with the product. If I found one really good case, I'd like to think I could just buy that one over and over.

1. On bootup the screen has a thick black border around the writing and startup logo, never before

2. Even though my other screen wasnt widescreen and this is the black bars have gone, every crop/video setting doesnt make a difference in VLC, changes no quality or video size

3. Dark sections of a film have grain, little dots flying everywhere my other screen is perfect

I just unplugged my old monitor and plugged the new one in and it seemed to installed the drivers for me I can see it in device manager.

Any ideas for any of the issues?

For the longest time I have noticed when saving wallpapers from the internet or photoshop and setting them as a desktop wallpaper it always creates "artifacts". Artifacts are small pixels forming around outlines and such in an image.

When on the internet the pictures on crystal clear. I can't understand why when I set a wallpaper the quality drops? When I open the picture in a photoviewer they are still crystal clear. It's when I set them as a wallpaper is when they turn to crap.

This happens on Windows 7 too. I dual boot.

I have an example below. The left side is a screenshot of the desktop when I apply the wallpaper. I split the wallpaper down the middle and merged a clean version so you can see a half and half of what I am talking about.

Left = Pixelated / Right = Crystal Clear

It is disappointing to read about all of the quality issues prevalent with the new P50/P70 workstations. Like others I had long anticipated the release of the P50/P70 with Xeon, ECC and PCIe options. What we expect from the Thinkpad brand is a robust, tested, stable platform.  It seems this is not what has been delivered in the latest platform. The problem is not just the number of issues described in this "P50/P70 Problems Master Thread".  It is also that the trust that Thinkpad users previously had in the brand is now no longer justified. I could not contemplate specifying a system costing thousands of Euro and then risk not only the issues already described here, but who knows what other possible quality and reliability issues that have not yet been identified. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile/P50-P70-Problems-Master-Thread/td-p/2273... Lenovo should get this under control quickly.  If I spend the next three years happily working on HP zBook then the chances are that my next workstation after that will also come from HP.  These quality issues are going to punch a hole in the Thinkpad customer base.

A:Quality Issues

trust that Thinkpad users previously had in the brand is now no longer justified.I suspect that these Thinkpad users haven't purchased any Lenovo devices in the last 7 years at least. In my subjective opinion, P70 has much fewer quality issues than any T/W/X2xx series Thinkpad laptop I've seen. Most of the issues in that top post are really nitpicks (compared to W520 randomly rebooting because of some static electricity issues & memory door, for example), and have been already resolved. Workarounds have been provided for many others (apparently not combinations of BIOS settings are created equal, and some have bizarre side effects )

I realized today, when I cleaned up all the crap on my desktop, that my wallpaper was filled with jpeg-like artifacts. Funny, considering the source file is practically flawless and a png. I tested fill, fit, and stretch by pasting a screencap into Photoshop. All 3 are identical in quality (or lack thereof). I also tried saving the source file as a bmp, because maybe Windows can't handle PNG directly? No dice - just as artifacted.

How do I fix this? I want the images scaled, but without the artifacting. The source files I'm using are bigger than my desktop's resolution, btw.

Hello dondon, I have done a lot of testing with this issue, Windows 7, I know for a fact re-samples images when you right click an image and choose 'set as desktop background' even if its already a jpeg Windows 7 re-samples it and the image quality is bad.

The best I have come up with is to put the images in a folder and use that folder go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization\Desktop Background and where it says picture location click browse and choose your folder you made.

The best image Quality I get is when saving files in Photoshop as jpegs then moving to your new folder.

Try it!! you will see the image quality is better right away!!

I recently downloaded some free MP3's of Hindi Songs. Since India doesn't have broadband that much, the creator of the site made them a lower quality of MP3 so that it'll download faster for them.

Currently, the MP3's sizes around around 400KB - 1000KB. The sound is pretty good, but if I burn this to a CD, will I be able to hear the difference significantly. Currently, when I play it off the computer, I can't hear the difference. But will it change once it's on a CD?

Also, how DO I make it better quality? Cause the site said, "It'll be faster if you make the quality better on your own, than spending 20 minutes downloaded it"

So I assume theres a way to bring back the quality of the song.

Lots depends on the quality of your camera---the number of sensors (three is good) the quality of the lens etc. The camera you are thinking of buying is a one chip camera. You will see some improvement, but if you really want to step up, look at a 3 chip camera.

Hey guys,

Just a quick question. Is there a difference in speed (for instance) when you buy A+ quality RAM over B quality RAM? At the moment I have 2GB (2x1gb) cheapish RAM (DDR2 SDRAM PC6400 CL5.0) and want to upgrade to 4GB. I could add another 2x1GB of the same RAM but I can also replace my modules with 2x2GB quality RAM (also DDR2 SDRAM PC6400 CL5.0).


A:Ram quality question

Generaly more expensive ram has a faster latency time. It is also a lot more reliable and most likely has a warranty. This meens that expensive ram will probably be better for you if you are willing to pay the extra money for it.

I have a question for your networking gurus.

The other day I was downloading the Windows 7 Iso from Dell. My network speeds were normal so its not effecting the speeds, but when i get my firewall report of quality (ms) It skyrockets up to almost 300 while downloading and i experience some packet loss.

Does anyone know why this is happening and should i be considered?

Imaged attached.

I edited it to only the part that concerned me.

A:Network Quality

Hey Parman,

Have you tried running some packet loss test?

Try running this bad boy (turn off all firewalls whilst testing)


Post you're results.

Although, I wouldnt worry to much about packet loss when download such a big file. Id say its normal really. (broadband contention)
