SOURCE: cant capture video

Not having camcorder control is normal, as the ADVC110 doesn't translate DV (AV/C) control to anything else. It just accepts and replies to deck control commands so the capture application doesn't get stuck waiting for a response.

First off, make sure you only have the ADVC110, your VCR, and your computer connected. No other Firewire devices.

Be sure your have the output from your VCR connected to the ADVC's input. Connect your VCR's output to your TV. You should see in iMovie the same image you see on your TV, slightly delayed.

You can use either the S-video or the RCA video connector. I don't think you can use both at the same time but I haven't tested that. Also, if you use the S-video adapter, it has no audio so you also have to use the RCA audio connectors when using S-video. Hope that helps...

I have a pinnacle moviebox 510-usb. The specification contains, you can streaming from analog secam source, but in importer section i can't see any video after switched secam mode, while the vcr play...


Be sure that your MovieBox capture device is selected under Studio's "Setup/Capture Source" selection (assuming you're capturing analog). If the MovieBox doesn't show up in that selection window, there could be a problem with the device.

Additionally, check in the Diskometer left-hand panel (this is found at the center of the bottom of the screen) and see that the correct input port value (either composite or s-video) is selected.

If you're capturing digital, then you'll have to use a Firewire connection to the MovieBox device.

Hope that's helpful.

Hi there. I have recently installed Honestech VHS to DVD 2.5 SE. However when I connect my laptop to the vcr the program doesn't pick up the vcr. Why could this be?


Make sure you have the latest drivers downloaded on you computer that are for the program. If the correct drivers aren't installed or updated the pc won't recognize your device.

Macbook pro does not find canopus acdv110


How did You connect Canopus? Canopus has 2 Firewire slots - on the back and on the front. If You connect FW cable to a front slot, then, Canopus will not work. Only with external power supply. I´m offering the next proceeding:
1. Connect ADVC with FW cable 6 to 4 to Your macbook via back FW slot. The ADVC lights will now on. On front panel by default light is on mode "digital". If the light don't work - it's a Canopus problem. If light is up and working, then next step.
2. Go to apple menu-about this mac - more info - firewire. You MUST see here Your Canopus a a device. If so, go to the next step.
3. Connect Your VCR to analog inputs, on the front panel of Canopus.
4. Run FCE. If it says "apple firewire device is missing" then is something wrong with Canopus. If not, proceed to next step.
5. On the top of the front panel of Canopus, press button. The light changes from digital to analogue.
6. Press apple+8, then capture settings. Set the firewire device as uncontrollable device. Make sure that in capture window is "vtr ok". Turn the VCR on
7. Press the play button on capture window. In the window appears the screen of Your VCR. Then press play on VCR and then "capture now" on capture panel. Voila! Must to work.

I was having this problem also. I originally plugged my 3 video cables into the VCR outlets in the front of the vcr. I finally turned the vcr around and found two other sets of video out plugs. One was to a dvd/dvr and the other was a vcr out. I took the plugs from the front of the vcr and plugged it into the dvd/dvr out and it worked! Good luck with your problem. Hope the resolution is just as simple.
