Question about Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick USB 2.0 TV Tuner

1 Answer

Accessing and recording schebuled TV video.

I am trying to develope a system that will record cable TV movies. This would consist of a PC TV tuner as an input from a DVD recorder that will permit me to schedule the video programs. The PC must be able to recognise a video input signal from the DVD recorder and start recording this into a mass storage device either internal or external hard drive.

To view these movies on a TV from the mass storage I need a another method to access the movie and send it to the TV.

I am still working on the first part using a Pinnacle Hd pro stick.

You were not too clear on the problem, but if you mean playback, then a very good program is PowerDVD. It will access the files stored (Pinnacle and other capture devices, store the files as .mpg typed, NOT DVD .vob files.) Software like AVS video Converter, can create the DVD formatted disks; trial is free download.

WILL RCA DVD/RECORDER, RECORD MOVIES FROM TV TO DVD DISC


It depends on the model and the source. The DRC212N is not a recorder, so it won't.

Depending on the model, it may or may not have a tuner. (Most modern ones are sold without any tuner. Older models may only have an analog (NTSC) tuner.) I know of one Magnovox DVR/DVD recorder that has an ATSC (digital) tuner.

If you are going to record OTA signals, you will probably need a digital to analog converter. If you are recording from a cable or satellite system set-top box, you need to set the channel on the box and then record on Line In. (Analog cable should record directly.)

Please add a comment with more information about your DVD recorder. I'll be glad to provide more assistance. I hope this helps.

Scheduled a timer recording of a program on a DVD+R and when I went to play it back all I got on the screen was noise and snow. I now realize that I used the wrong disc (should have used only DVD-R). ...


Hi,During timer recording adjustment you must have selected what ever you want to record..i.e: Tuner Channel , or ,Video1 input ,or Video 2 input etc..This problem is related with Source selection but not with - + type Disc..wrong disc will refuse to record at the beginning..

The noise and snow shows that your recorder was Recorded an unadjusted RF channel..thus no TV signal was available during recording ..
I assume that your DVD recorder has built in TV tuner in...To correct the problem,first you make an automatic Ch set up ,search the available channels either on the Cable (if you have ) or RF local channels thru Arial Antenna..
than you try to record again by carefully selecting ..you will record TV RF channels successfully. Or you can attach another video source to your Recorder thru the RCA cables on the back panel and by selecting the respective SOURCE in accordance withe cabling you have made than you will record the AV signals available on your Receiver..
If you need more help pls let me know for further advise.

My VCR doesn't record from my Digital TV. It did before.


Your VCR does not have a digital tuner. If using an antenna or basic cable, you must decode the digital signal through the D/A converter first, then send the signal via the RF cable (Screw -on ) or Audio/Video RCA to the VCR. You will have to manually press record. My guess is that you were used to programming and leaving it. So, if you are/were using your VCR as a tuner to schedule recordings, it is no longer a valid option. If you have a cable or satellite box with a DVR, this is the way to go. I am not sure if anyone offers a VCR with a digital tuner. Google and discover. Unfortunately all those hours (years in some cases) we spent learning how to program our VCRs is now in vain.

Recording from one vhs recorder to another.


Hi,

If your plan is to copy a VHS movie to a blank VHS tape, the connections would require a 3 wire RCA connector/cable. The unit where the original movie will be played will be the player. Connect the yellow video RCA cable to the VIDEO OUT, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R OUT. On the 2nd unit designated as recorder, slip in the blank VHS tape. Connect the other end of the RCA 3 wire cable to yellow VIDEO IN, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R IN. Connect the RF OUT of the 2nd unit (recorder to the ANT IN of a TV set. Set the TV to either Channel 3 or 4 as the case may be.

If the recorder has a manual selector or via remote, pls verify that it is set to Video and not tuner (or channels) input.

Press Record on the recorder (2nd unit), press play on the 1st unit (player). The TV will serve as monitor to your copying progress.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or shoould you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
