I am thinking of buying the Diamond Multimedia TV Wonder HD 650 PCI-express TV Turner to transfer my old video tape to DVD. I saw the specification said: NTSC, does it mean I can use with my video player (PAL) system only.
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.

Using old tapes is the wrong way to go. Eventhough there is an rease head in the VCR, there will always be some residual information left behind that affects the new recording. Older tape also has a tendency to flake off and plug a video head. A tape with a wrinkled edge will confuse the recorder speed sensor and try to change speeds too.
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.
Mine does the same thing. I think that the problem might be that you have to go to the yellow gear thing and you have to change the recording format to DVD and you have to change the video format to NTSC_M. And make sure you have all of your hardware and your y splitters connected right
check the NTSC and PAL...i think it can help you...you must check,which country you are...PAL is working in black and white if it is not support in the country where you stayin..i think so but check.....
All you will need is a capture card. You can pick these up at a circuit city or Best buy. Then they will connect via the RCA cables. out from the VCR into the capture card. You can also get USB capture cards for ease of installation. Thanks, Lee
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.
