Question about Canopus ADVC-300 A/D Converter Video Capture

1 Answer

Can I convert PAL?

Does it have any PAL >> NTSC conversion capability?

What happens if I put in a PAL VHS tape? Can I at least get a PAL QuickTime file, that I might then be able to convert with Final Cut Pro's Compressor utility? I haven't done that yet either, so I'm looking for a solution. Any advice very much appreciated.

thanks!

No, you have to capture a signal in format it is generated, save the recording and then do 'transcoding' into different format. Search web for free transcoding utilities.

This depends on your operating system and video display hardware, but a lot of the time, updating to the latest video driver for the card will solve the problem.
The other possibility is that you are set to the wrong video source (for example, the S-Video instead of the composite).
The third possibility is that you are set to be "PAL" capture for an NTSC source or vice versa. If you are in the US, set NTSC. If anywhere else, select PAL.

When I capture video from vhs, the result is a lot worse in quality than the original tape. I have tried capturing avi and mpeg, it makes no difference. fixed bitrate at 8000, no difference. Highest...


If you have the option, try capturing your video as MJPEG or DV format without compression, also the resolution must be 720x480 pixels (for NTSC) or 720x576 pixels (for PAL).
It will create a huge file !!! After this I recommend a dvd conversion with deinterlacing for better picture quality.
Hope this helps!

PAL VHS format


I'm not sure I understand your problem. What are you using that is PAL? If your VHS tapes are in PAL then the TV Wonder card, which can only handle NTSC format, will not produce a picture and you will not be able to transfer your movies. If they are in NTSC (U.S. or ***) then you should be able to transfer them just fine if you are using a computer from the same region. If you are using a computer from a different region (e.g. EUR) then this card is not your best solution.

No colour..


Sounds like you're feeding the ADVC the wrong broadcast format. Either PAL when the ADVC is in NTSC mode, or NTSC when the ADVC is in PAL mode.

Alternatively, your capture software may have a broadcast format setting as well, and that may not be matching what the ADVC is sending out. Remember that the ADVC does not do NTSC<->PAL format conversion, so NTSC analog input becomes NTSC DV, and PAL analog input becomes PAL DV.

No color from VHS on DVD/VHS player


There may be an input selection between Composite and S-Video that needs to be toggled in your Hauppauge software.

Your Hauppauge card may also be in the wrong signal format mode (NTSC or PAL). Your source device and your Hauppauge card need to be in the same mode (both NTSC or both PAL) for the capture to work properly.

If your NV-VP33 is a SCART output, then you may need to check your SCART adapter and your device as not all devices output both S-Video (Y/C - two signals) and Composite (CVBS - one signal) type signals.

If your SCART adapter has both Composite and S-Video outputs, try the other one.

And finally... if you're playing an NTSC tape/DVD in a PAL player, it doesn't mean the output is true NTSC 3.58. Most times it's NTSC 4.43 which is OK for TVs, but NOT okay for video capture devices. Video capture devices need true NTSC 3.58 to sync the color carrier properly.

Vhs pal video not working


Change the DIP switch to PAL, unplug the unit (no power), then plug it back in. You need to power-cycle the unit to after changing DIP switch settings.

Also make sure that your capture application is set to PAL mode, if there is a NTSC/PAL setting.
