Question about Canopus ADVC-110 A/D Converter (77010150105) Video Capture

1 Answer

Black and white

I have connected my canopus converter to a macbook pro using RCA cables from a panasonic nv-hv62 vcr. It is a multi function VCR. I have connected the converter to the macbook pro via a 6 pin fire wire cable. It works except there is no color in the picture. I have switched the Dip switch 1 on the back from off to on and vice versa with no result. I have the dip switches in the default positions. I have played the tape through the TV and it works fine - I live in Australia and the TV is Pal.

I want to connect our VCR to the new Sharp HDTV,but I do not find audio,video out on the tv.How do I link the two?

Some HDTVs can output analog video and audio but if you say your HDTV does not, then you would have to use some other tuner/box/decoder/converter such as a cable box if you have cable TV service or a DTV converter box for over-the-air TV or a satellite box. The VCR would connect to the tuner/converter box and record analog video and audio using the RCA yellow video and white audio jacks. Standard VCRs cannot record high-def video except as down-converted analog video.

The VCR would then connect to the HDTVs inputs (yellow, white) for playback.

NO. Your VCR is not stereo capable (white and red), it is only MONO (white) so only connect the white RCA plug to the white jack. Leave the red cable unconnected.

Macbook pro does not find canopus acdv110

How did You connect Canopus? Canopus has 2 Firewire slots - on the back and on the front. If You connect FW cable to a front slot, then, Canopus will not work. Only with external power supply. I´m offering the next proceeding:
1. Connect ADVC with FW cable 6 to 4 to Your macbook via back FW slot. The ADVC lights will now on. On front panel by default light is on mode "digital". If the light don't work - it's a Canopus problem. If light is up and working, then next step.
2. Go to apple menu-about this mac - more info - firewire. You MUST see here Your Canopus a a device. If so, go to the next step.
3. Connect Your VCR to analog inputs, on the front panel of Canopus.
4. Run FCE. If it says "apple firewire device is missing" then is something wrong with Canopus. If not, proceed to next step.
5. On the top of the front panel of Canopus, press button. The light changes from digital to analogue.
6. Press apple+8, then capture settings. Set the firewire device as uncontrollable device. Make sure that in capture window is "vtr ok". Turn the VCR on
7. Press the play button on capture window. In the window appears the screen of Your VCR. Then press play on VCR and then "capture now" on capture panel. Voila! Must to work.

I think you are expecting camera to covert VCR analog video-audio signal into digital so it can be record in Macbook?

Camcorder will not do this job and you need to hookup VCR with DVD Recorder to burn DVD of VHS tape.

Canopus ADVC-110

Hi! You must use a firewire in order to receive power - if you're going to use composite cables (red, white, yellow) you will have to purchase an AC adapter.
