Go-to method for VHS capture

I have a RetroTINK 5X (inspired by the ESA speedrunning events) but I just need get used to handling the this Smart-Scaling contraption.
Used and captured via:

Tapes (used for preliminary tests):

Raintree County (1957) 1999 Roadshow VHS [P&S the Widescreen Pressing is hard to find nowadays].
South Pacific (1958) 1990 CBS/FOX VHS Main/End Titles for the 35mm Titles
in Letterbox format.
The Hallelujah Trail (1965) 1991 Extended VHS [P&S] 156 min (If the person excludes the Exit Music [Overture repeated in this place])
The Abyss (1989) 1990 CBS/FOX VHS [Second Pressing = Version B with 10-min credits rather than the Version A with 5-min credits] 

Capture Software:

Bandicam

Somehow I got the feel this might be the fancy way to capture (From what I can see):

RetroTINK 5X: VHS/CED/VHD
RetroTINK 4K: Betamax/LaserDisc/D-VHS

Long short, I'll be looking forward in to upgrading my Analog Devices with AC-3/DTS Decoders and watching VHS/LDs with the RetroTINK 5X (VHS)/RetroTINK 4K (LD/Non-HDMI consoles) when I have sufficient funds and feel when the time is right to do so...

Your post is a little confusing, but to be clear the 4K is the latest version of the Retrotink and has more capabilities than the older 5X. He is still updating both and backporting features where he can, but it sounds like the 5X is limited by its smaller FPGA.
