Picture quality issue importing analog videos

I am using the Basetech USB 2.0 Video-grabber BR116 to import my 25 y old Hi8 Videos into Premiere Elements 2022 (appers as "webcam or WDM device"). My still going strong Hi8 camera has made analog videos with 25 fps. The resulting imported AVI videos have only 20 fps: this results in 1 frozen frame out of 5, greatly impairing the movie quality. How can I setup PrEl 2022 to import those videos correctly with 25 fps?

With the included software (honestech VHS to DVD 3.0) I get PAL standard .mpg files (720 x 576) with 25 fps; that means it's not a problem of the video grabber. I can import the MPG files in PrEl 2022; however, that software has some bugs that make working more difficult.

 

Moved into a new thread: different issue [mod]

I am guessing the videograbber is the culprit.

Post a screenshot of a clip in MediaInfo in treeview.

And can you upload a short clip for testing.
