Cant turn on magnavox digital converter box

sounds like you have a faulty box. or no power going to it. If the power button on the unit isn't turning it on or off then its your unit. if button on your unit is working then you will need a new remote. To purchase a new one try Replacement Remotes.

Intermittent signal

No signal means that it does not have antenna input that it can decode (possibly too low). Try plugging it in right at your laptop to see if the extender is the problem, and go from there.

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.

"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!

Solid red light - Don't search to sync after new drivers and firmware update.

20 minutes after posting the same problem.... I figured it out, ahah... So one case is that you turned off your unit before the firmware update was ready (caused internal damage to your unit) so you might have to send it back. However, what I did was I uninstalled the firestudio cd/driver w/e the heck it is that came with it and then installed it again. That way the universal driver deals with the software for the firestudio the way it should. After doing that and restarting it, simply turn on your unit and it should be red for a few seconds (i thought i was still screwed) but then it turnes blue and syncs... so try that... i might just work.

Canopus ADVC 110 converter box not working

Plugging in the FireWire backward, especially if it's the 6-pin FireWire, will damage the unit's hardware. You need to contact technical support to arrange for repair.

I'm guessing that you have it connected via a 6pin firewire on the ADVC100 to a 4pin firewire on your macpro. The device needs to be connected via 6pin to 6pin in order for the device to get power, otherwise you'll have to buy a AC adapter (which is not included). Otherwise it's a great device for DV conversion on multiple platforms!

M-audio firewire solo

I just bought the Firewire Solo and had the same issue with my MacBook. I have OSX 10.5.6. The drivers that came on the CD were for earlier OSX version. If you go to M-Audio's website ( and then click on Support. Go to to drivers & updates, search by the criteria they give you for your specific system and then download. Although they don't currently have an updated version for 10.5.6, I downloaded 10.5.5 and it seems to be working, although I'm running into an audio input problem when hooking up mic and sound. I'm thinking I'll just have to wait until M-Audio comes out for an updated version for 10.5.6. Hope this helps.
