VHS Video Capture Problems with Pinnacle DV500 DVD

  Colonelkaye 13:05 06 Jul 2003

Hi, I am currently using the Pinnacle DV500 DVD capture system with external breakout box to enable import or export to VHS.

I have recently completed capture of a movie from my DV Camcorder and now want to repeat the process importing all of my VHS tapes to DVD format.

I cannot get the pc to recognise that a VHS is attached using the cables provided. Has any one else experienced a similar problem or am I missing something simple!!

Please help

I'm assuming the box is an analogue capture device. You say you've captured dv from your dv camcord, which is a firewire type of capture. Is the box firewire with analogue conversion, or is the box an analogue converter and it's linked to a firewire card on your pc?

No. the breakout box has both. It has a firewire connection and also S-video/composite video / audio - in and out which connects directly to the pinnacle capture card in the pc.

The DV captured fine and my home DVD is great (for a first attempt). Now I connect the video to the breakout box via a scart connector and I cannot for the life of me get the program (which uses Adobe Premiere 6.0 and/or Pinnacle DV500 DVD

Is this any more helpful?
