Your post/description refers to delayed recorded audio when recording a TV program using the Pinnacle TV PCI Adapter.

If this is not a hardware issue, this problem could possibly be corrected by any combination of:
1. increasing your memory;
2. verifying that your hard disk: has sufficient free space and regularly defragged, clean your Temp and Temporary Internet files;
3. increasing your swap file size (roughly equal to or double your memory);
4. installing the latest drivers for your motherboard & devices as well as necessary updates to your Operating System ;
5. increasing the Graphics Aperture Size to double your video card's memory & PCI Latency Timer to 255 in your BIOS/CMOS (if available);
6. verifying that no other programs are running when doing the recording;
7. verifying that you have no IRQ sharing/conflict; and
8. verifying that you have the latest Direct X.

Should it be a hardware issue, clean, reinstall, replace as the case maybe. The old Pinnacle works except delayed recorded audio, the new is not recognized. Try again the old with the above corrective measures. With the new, try again after cleaning the PCI slots, if it still doesn't work, ask for replacement.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Hi i have a samsung B3210 and im having problems. i can hear the person on the other side but they can not hear me. How can i solve this problem

probably this is hardware problem.
to confirm it go to audio recorder and try to record your voice.
after recording save it and play.
if you listen clean and clear voice then it is not hardware problem.
if it's not hardware problem then try switching off or formatting your phone.
to solve hardware problem go to mobile repairing shop and ask them to fix new mike

Finish the burn has audio on computer but not on dvd player?

Hi and Welcome to Fixya,

Can you please clarify with me what is the program that you may try to used? Is that Pinnacle Studio program or the instant DVD recorder program?

If there is a audio on your computer and there is no audio on your DVD player you might check the cable of your audio to your speaker. If you find that the cable has no problem then go ahead and check your program then try to burn it again. Make sure before you burn your video that the audio is heard then if you found out that there is an audio then go ahead and record the video again.

Let me know what happen.

I have my dazzle connected properly but when i go into windows movie maker it records the sound of my television but there is no picture?

Hi and Welcome to Fixya,

Did you mean you are recording video and audio using your Television set? I'm afraid that dazzle is not design to used if for capturing or even capturing using Windows Movie maker. Because dazzle device is design to used for Pinnacle Studio program and Instant DVD recorder program only, It is not supported to used for both of them. That is the reason why there is no Picture while recording.

Accessing and recording schebuled TV video.

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.

No colour when I record using the Dazzle DVD Recorder.

Get a program called amcap and you also need pinnacle studio first open pinnacle studio then go to capture then if your using 12 dv then open amcap an error will come up then go to options then video filter settings or something then where it says pal or ntsc change it to secam b then go to pinnacle studio and look at the preview, it is in color then when you start recording it goes black and white again so open amcap go to options then video capture filter then change secam to ntsc then apply then go to secam b again then it will be recording in color then you have to cut out the black and white in pinnacle studio or any other video editing program I use sony vegas pro 9 then search tutorials on the program but it is easy in any program really.

0.008 seconds - no capture, no preview.

Going to the Pinnacle support part of their website in downloads and downloading the latest drivers for the relevant model number worked for me.

Instant DVD Recorder stops working when I try to capture

Please try to uninstall the program Instant DVD Recorder.

Download the latest version of Instant DVD Recorder in the link below which is the 2.6.

Make sure that the program that you have must be uninstall first before you start downloading the file and install it.
