The screen has nothing to do with the end result. Remember, when you're converting you're running the output from the VCR into some sort of capture device usually inside or connected to a PC. A screen has nothing to do with the end result

To get the best quality, you're going to have to make adjustments to the initial capture in software (i.e. VirtualDub or Avisynth, etc). I've been spending a lot of time on my recently learning to use filters in VirtualDub and making adjustments to the resulting capture. It makes a *big* difference.

My two most recent captures were made using my newly acquired JVC VCR along with an ATI 600 USB capture device from Virtual Dub.

VHS tape quality is all over the board. Some tapes are better quality and need less help. Others take a lot of work to get them looking good.

I have two VCRs and I've run into tapes that won't play in one but play in the other. It's the nature of the beast.
