Hi,

Pretty common situation. You can either just use one connector (audio) and record it as the left or right. If they are home video - they are most likely mono anyway. If they are stereo takes (purchased movies) - you might consider borrrowing a stereo VCR to provide two channel output. Since everyone is going to Digital - many people are giving away older TVs with built in VCR function. I use Dazzel for this alot - it's handy to have a VCR with a good remote for play, stop, pause and FF and RW.

I am trying to use the Dazzle hooked up with my VCR ( I have done it before) but now the VCR is not playing the movie (can't see the video on my computer). The VCR is basic, it doesn't have an S Video


The setup should be like this.

VHS > RCA > Dazzle > Computer.

The cable must be connected at the back Audio/Video output not in the Input.

Please check also the online documentation below.

No video displayed in the Instant DVD Recorder preview window.

I am running on a Dell XPS and my dazzle dvd recorder wont work.


Hi and Welcome to fixya!

I suggest to you to double click on Instant DVD Recorder Icon and choose go directly to Advance mode. Click next. On step number 1 click the pull down arrow and choose dazzle DVC 100. Click on options and choose video input. If your cable connection is the yellow red and white cable then choose Video composite, If S-video cable then choose Video S-video. If you have a VHS player click VHS input and click okay.
Next when everything is done turn your camcorder,vhs,vcr and then hit the play button.

That is the time that the video image is showing to the preview screen of the computer. Still not showing disconnect the dazzle device and place to another usb port.

If your dazzle device is not showing under step number one, you need to download and install the driver to Pinnacle Website.

I need a picture of how to hook up the dazzle to the vcr


If your trying to capture from a vcr make sure that the cables "composite are connected at the back make sure it is plug in to the video out.

Next, connect the cables directly to the dazzle.

make sure that the vcr is on and it is playing.

In the program Instant DVD Recorder please go to the step 1 select the dazzle as your video source not pinnacle file capture.

Then click option check the VHS input.
Video input must be composite if your using the composite
Audio input must be the dazzle.

Dvd recording using a pc


The product you need is called the Pinaccle Dazzle - it is basically a red/white/yellow composite to USB connector - it also comes with software for capturing your videos in DVD format on your computer (or you can record directly to a DVD disc inserted in yuor computer). I purchased mine at Best Buy, but it is available in a lot of places. It works great, and I have been busily converting those old VHS's to my PC, and then from PC to DVD.

Good luck!

Can't hear sound on Windows Mediaplayer from DVD I recorded


I've been pondering this one for a day or so - at least two possibilities:
1) There is a mute/audio-off hotbutton inside Windows Media Player itself - click on it and see if the audio works. Alternatively, you can try playing a music file in Windows Media Player to see if THAT file has sound.
2) You need a better Codec - the free version of the K-Lite Codec has limited audio support. There are no easy answers to this problem. I frequently use my computer for converting VHS's to DVD, so I finally plunked down the $50 to purchase Nero 9 and all of its codecs. Before that, however, I used VLC Media Player (free) - it has DVD/VOB audio support.

As a side note, if you wanted to use your computer to convert the VHS's to DVD, you would need a plain-old VCR, a red/white/yellow cable, a DVD burner, and a product called the Dazzle DVD Recorder from Pinnacle. You can hook the VCR straight to your computer and burn away. To get the best experience however, I would also get a program like Nero, Roxio, etc. to do the actual DVD burning (although the Dazzle's native software is perfectly capable of doing the job).

Good luck!

You should select the options:
Hard disc folder - if you will be saving the content in your hard drive, the format of this files are DVD such as VOB and IFO etc.
TSST - _ _ _ _ - if you will selecting your DVD drive.

(If you have selected your DVD Burner and you cannot click "next" to proceed to the Third option,
this means that your DVD drive is not able to burn a DVD)

3. Select menus
It must be NO

4. Recording
select total recording time (make sure that dazzle is selected in the "select source" to set the total recording time)

DVD/VCR Combo


your model is "tuner free" that means it does not have the RF screw in connector. Buy one that has a tuner, preferably both ATSC(USA digital) and NTSC(USA analog)
