    I bought a hi8 recorder to replace my regular 8mm. When replaying the
    regular 8mm on the hi8, the sound cuts in and out, and there is a
    slight horizontal distortion line on the bottom of the screen. Is this
    normal for playing regualar 8 tapes on a hi8 camcorder?

    Could be a couple of things.

    Most likely, it is an alignment difference between the Hi8 machine and the
    regular 8 camera it was originally recorded on. It might also be physical
    damage to the tape.
