Ask Slashdot: Best Service To Digitize VHS Home Movies?

Lord Maud'Dib Re:Most important: (130 comments)

I was always told the 0s got stuck at kinks as they were wider. The 1s can slip through when they are oriented correctly. Also, ensure your cable cross profile is oval to better accommodate the 0s. Which reminds me of another audiophile tip - purchase a parity alignment module and set it to the correct orientation, that way both 1s and 0s are oriented longitudinal to your cable.
