No – what I meant was that if


No – what I meant was that if the commercials play nicely and the programmes don't then the tape is not first generation, and at some point material from one VT has been recorded onto another – and at this point the sync pulses have probably suffered, and now on the replay machine there's a bit more poor alignment so the already damaged sync is below threshold, but the only slightly bad content still plays. You may be able to find the happy medium if you are able to carry out realignment. It's actually unusual for the audio/video alignment to be wrong, that sounds more like something that happened at the digitisation stage when the sync got lost, so I think the cure is a physical one – adjust the alignment of the player.
