i have just bought a tevion usb2800d dvd maker. i have also bought a scart to 3 jack plug lead to attach it from my vcr to my PC. howwever i just cannot seem to get any audio or vdo pic from it. i am very new to the task of vdo encoding so any help would be greatly appreciated. i am running athlon 1.3
windows xp, 512 ddr ram masses of space on a 120 gb drive. help!
there is pvr plus and power producer gold but all connections on the unit were female. they were also female on the vcr i went out and bought a scart to 3 male connectors lead. it seems to be working ok its just that i get nothing but a blamk screen on the "preview section" of the pvr it says rec etc ...but all it is recording is a blank screen (black) so somehow i am not getting any signal audio or video from my vcr to my pc. i know i am not explaining this very well told you i was new....lol sorry
On my scart converter I have a switch for input and out put. Check yours and make sure that it's switched to output.
I did find with my set up that, I was getting sound but no picture. I recified this by using a s-video cornector and dispatching with the yellow rca connector, but kepping the red and white audio rca connectors.
Have you selected the right settings, only there is usually a load of options, make sure you select PAL. By the sound of it you do not have a scart converter but a premade lead, it is important to get the right direction on your lead as Josie points out.
there is no switch on my scart connector. there are many pal "types" in the options. i have tried most of them i think. it was a pre made lead. there are labels stuck to the side of the individual cables.. saying audio in (r) audio in (l) and video in. shouldn't these be audio and video out? as they are coming FROM the vcr?
