Question about Xitel MD-Port DG2 (MDPORTDG1)

1 Answer

Computer won't turn the device on.

Recently I plugged the DG2 in, got the red LED indicating it was connected, and easily loaded the MD player. I tried it again today, with two different DG2's and neither gave the red LED, and I could not load music. Seems like a PC problem rather than an MD-Port problem. Any ideas? OS is XP

The video portion won't play but audio does

It looks like you've got a plain, old "480i standard definition" TV. The inputs on it will likely be limited to S-Video, RF Coaxial (cable) and one or more sets of "A/V" inputs that consist of 3 jacks - 1 each yellow, red, and white. Without knowing the make & model of the TV I can't be sure which / how many inputs it has. It looks like you're trying to play a DVD. Most DVD players only offer A/V type connections - again - you didn't provide this info so I'm forced to guess. The Yellow jack (on TVs and disc and tape player / recorders almost always provide the higher quality A/V jacks) is for the video signal and the Red & White are always the left and right stereo audio jacks. The cables used to connect devices to the TV have the same colored plugs to make matching them up easier than if they were all the same color. If you accidentally connected one of the red or white audio plugs into the yellow video jack, you will not have a picture. Check BOTH ends of the cable - at the TV and at the DVD player. All three plugs must be connected to the corresponding colored jack.

If it is connected properly, your DVD player might be one that was a more expensive type that offers "480P Progressive Scan" output along with the standard "480i interlaced scan" output. The 480i output was called "standard definition" and 480P was called "enhanced definition" and provided a better picture. If your TV only supports 480i, it will not be able to display a 480P signal. You will need to check the DVD Player manual to find out how to return the output to 480i again. If you no longer possess the manual, you may either Google it or provide the brand and model here so that we might take a look for it for you.

In the event that you are using RF coax (cable) to get the signal from the source into the TV, you may just be trying to watch it on CH4 instead of CH3 (or vice-versa). Try changing the channel up or down one from where it is to see if the picture comes in.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Handheld mouse will not work. Has been sitting for 1 week. Installed new batteries. Targus model #AMP01.

Make sure that your computer is turned on and has detected the USB receiver before you establish a communications link.
The light emitter diode (LED) illuminates to indicate your computer has detected the receiver.
1 Press and release the Connection button on the receiver.
The receiver's LED turns off.
2 Press and release the Connection button, located on the bottom of the presenter.The receiver's LED resumes glowing when the set up has been completed.
You are now ready to use the presenter.

What are the red yellow and white cords for i have a xbox

The side with 3 RCA jacks, red, white, and yellow, is for connecting the USB to a composite video cable. The black connects to an S-video cable; you would still use the red and white plugs to carry the audio. At least the older XBox's had composite video outputs; you just need the composite video cable (which you may have as they came with many video devices (VCRs, DVD players, video cameras).)

If you need to connect this Video capture device to another type of output, you will need a converter. Component to composite video would be one option. However, you will have signal loss with any converter.

I hope this helps.

"no device control" blue screen on imovie with ADVC55 connected

Hi - The red light indicates the VHS is Macrovision copy protected, so the ADVC55 is refusing to import it.
There is a sort of "secret" workaround for this that most people who own the old Canopus products know, and which Canopus also knew, supported, and had posted on their forums (unfortunately deleted by the new owner who seems to be unclear on copyright law).
Remember, it is LEGAL to make ONE (but ONLY one) copy of any copyrighted material for your personal use for backup purposes. In other words, if you do this, you can record the movie into your computer and store it there, or burn it to a DVD (after which you must erase the copy on your computer), but that's all! You cannot make another copy for anyone else - not even yourself - without violating copyright law.
That said, here are the two procedures that usually work, easiest first:
1) When you first turn the Canopus on, hold the select button down for roughly twenty seconds. Now the system should ignore any copy protection until you turn the unit off.
2) (if 1 doesn't work:)
1. Put all dip switches OFF (unless you have a PAL system). 2. Hook up the firewire cable from the unit to the PC while ensuring that both units are OFF (this is what the instructions say to do, because you can cause a damaging power surge otherwise).
3. Turn on the power to the DVD player, PC and ADVC-100.
4. Set capture on your PC (your software) to Manual.
5. Start the DVD.
6. The ANALOG IN LCD of the unit will light, and if the DVD is Macrovision protected, the red STATUS light will stay on for about 18 seconds, turn off for about three seconds, and then repeat the process (or may remain red longer on some units).
7. Depress and HOLD the INPUT SELECT silver button. The DIGITAL IN LCD will light up temporarily then turn off. Keep this button depressed until the red STATUS light stays off completely (about 15 seconds).
8. Release the INPUT SELECT BUTTON and press it briefly one more time until the ANALOG IN button lights up.
9. Macrovision is now bypassed!

Again, once you turn the ADVC55 off (which you must - if it stays on for long periods it can overheat and malfunction), you'll have to go through the Macrovision bypass procedure again next time you turn it on.
Good luck, and I hope this works for you as it did for me with my Canopus!
