    Hello Jay,

    No it's not normal, the picture should definitely be better.

    You don't say what sort of blackish lines you see. Is it around lighter objects in the foreground? In that case, you may want to set your TV set better: it may have 'image sharpening' set too high (which is sort of necessary for a poor composite signal, but not for your razor-sharp S-VHS signal).

    Does it look different than that? Please tell us more!
