I forgot to comment the latter. In my case the DN-300 recorder above 
also had a built-in ADC and ecorded the digitized Hi8 S-video as SD DV 
And then DV files burned to Blu-ray data discs as backup. Thereafter 
making mpeg2 Blu-ray Video discs.

Regarding digitizing the rest of 30 analog S-video tapes, I'll also will 
try out (when arrived) an ADC adapter+ HDMI-USB3 capture card qualities.
