    As many do I'm trying to save my wedding video on DVD from Hi8... the
    video is very 'shaky' (bad tape) and I decided on a AverMedia Ultra TV
    550 capture casd with a Time Base Corrector. Surprisingly the video
    turned out quite stable BUT everything sort of changes color
    periodically, mainly purple hues... Any suggestions on a different
    method or card? I'm assuming a set top DVD recorder would not have
    the time base corrector. Money isn't a big object, but should be
    considered - I don't want to spend thousands! Thanks much!

    Time base correctors do alter colors.
    You'd need to use an video editing program to correct for changes in
    color.

    Sony Vegas Video has good color correction tools. The Vegas 5 will cost
    about 500 some odd bucks, and they have a bundled Vegas+DVD for about 700
    some odd bucks.

    This is probably a bit high if all your wanting to do is tweak one video.
    Perhaps someone can suggest a more affordble alternative.

    Have you tried playing the tape in a different camera / deck? Maybe a Hi8
    deck would be more forgiving to the damaged tape and give you more stable
    results.

    Kevin,
    this is a great product to try:
    http://www.canopus.us/US/products/ADVC300/pt_advc300.asp

    or a good full frame TBC like the DataVideo TBC-1000 at around $300
    would help also. DVD Recorders have some stabilizing circuits and filters
    inside but not as good
    as a full TBC. Sound like you need to correct some bad sync pulses with are
    affecting the video.
    Hope this helps,
    AnthonyR.
