Ok, i know iv got all the cords plugged in right. but when i start up windows movie maker and click capture, all i see on the screen is static. i know the plug ins are plugged into the right places because when i plug them into one place, i get static. but anywhere else i just get a black screen. i have a 3 in one cord of yellow, red, and white plugged into tv out. how do i get it to work?
I do recommend please try to connect the dazzle at the back USB ports of your computer. And if your using the old version of Instant DVD recorder try to uninstall the program and download the latest version in the pinnacle website. Also try to update the driver of your graphics card. make sure that you capture card is 128MBor higher. 64 is not recommended.

Did you mean you are recording video and audio using your Television set? I'm afraid that dazzle is not design to used if for capturing or even capturing using Windows Movie maker. Because dazzle device is design to used for Pinnacle Studio program and Instant DVD recorder program only, It is not supported to used for both of them. That is the reason why there is no Picture while recording.
Suggest for that is to disconnect your dazzle and then connect at the back of your computer. Please do this Click on Start>Control panel>system>hardware>device manager>sound and video games controller> right click on video capture device and uninstall it. Restart your computer. Open again your Studio and then try to capture it again.
What kind of video cable you used? S-video or composite? if s-video did you also connect the red and white cable? If composite did you try to used another audio cable? Can you please try to visit and check your device manager and check if there is a yellow exclamation point.
you need to connect rca jacks or the mini jacks to the anolog side of your sound card and the 9 pin connector will use for video to capture aslo if your using windows movie maker you need to select the imput type and mpeg 2 or mpeg3.
Are you on Windows? What version (XP, 98, Vista, etc?) What file system are you using (right click on the drive in My Computer and select Properties)
If you are using FAT32, there is a built in limit to 2GB files. If you are finding that your capture is hitting 2GB (=103min?) and then crashing, this may be your problem. Also, consult the capture settings in the Dazzle software and ensure no file size or running time limitation is selected there.
