Was the the original capture compressed at all?

Digitizing, especially from VHS, is a challenge. Best is to take the YC 
output from the deck, push it through a TBC/proc-amp into the capture 
device, and record that with no compression. If a TBC isn't available, at 
least don't compress the capture. Sure, you end up with a HUGE file, but 
then you can repeatedly post-process to find what looks the best.

OTOH, if recapturing isn't an option, the OP may be stuck.
