Not Capturing Sound

I've got my ADS PTV-390 installed, and I can see the video and hear the sound while capturing, but when I playback the captured file, there is no sound. I've been fighting with this thing for a month over other issues and I'm about ready to toss it off my deck! HELP please!

Re: Not Capturing Sound

If you can hear the sound while capturing, it's probably not a hardware problem. First - the obvious - go to your Volume icon in your systray (lower right hand corner). Right click on the icon. Then click on adjust audio properties. That will open a window that will show playback and recording volumes. Make sure they are both at least half way. If it is, make sure that the software and drivers you're using are all updates. If they are, you may be using a corrupt codec or for some reason it is not used correctly. Try completely uninstalling the application, manually deleting the registry entries and configuration files, and reinstalling the application from scratch. Good luck.

I'm trying to import footage from my vhs onto my laptop (i'm using vista). I can get the videos, and the quality is okay, but there isn't any sound. I tried with both PowerProducer and PowerDirector but...

For better video quality with EasyCap USB video capture card:

1. Install FFDShow codecs to Your Windows:
2. Use gold plated cables and adapters - s-video is normally a little bit better than composite
3. Check that all contacts between devices, cables and adapters are tight enough
4. Do not use any extension USB cable - put EasyCap/EzCAP straight to the computer's USB port
5. Switch off all other programs during capturing
6. Capture with max resolution 720x576px PAL, 720x480px NTSC.
7. You must have a powerful computer - check that CPU Usage is under 50% during
capturing and if it goes over, so buy more RAM and/or better processor and/or
better graphic card and/or faster hard drive.

I am using the vc500 to capture video. It works except

That is a frequent 'fault' with the low cost capture units.q Nothing can be done, other than seeing if Diamond has a newer driver that corrects it.

Video and sound out of "syc"-Dazzle DVC90 video capture device

The sound sync problem has been round since the very start of DVD conversion.

However, the general rule is defrag the hard drive before rendering or capturing and also make certain that all running apps are shut down (messengers, etc)

Another common problem is the video drivers - always keep those fully up to date with the latest drivers from the card makers (same for sound drivers) and also the latest DirectX from MS

Cant capture sound with DVC 90 with vista

Make sure you check the recording source for audio and also the volume levels. Check the default audio input settings in Vista as well as the audio recording source in the recording program.

Philips SAA7130 TV Tuner/FM Radio/Video PCI Capture Card problems

Have you checked the installation? - most PCI capture cards use the audio card of the PC for sound. A jumper cord is needed to come out the capture card and into the audio line-in jack. Green jack on the capture card is OUT, and the Blue jack on the sound card is Line IN.

How to input audio with capturing the video?

The white and red leads off the VCR are typically audio, the yellow is video. I would suspect the problem is elsewhere. The cards capture software is a likely candidate.
