Sony HDR-SR5 Colours reversed on pc

I recently brought a Sony HDR-SR5 which works great, but when I uploaded the videos to my PC the colours were reversed, I copyed the same video to my laptop which runs on vista and it was fine, I also ran it off my TV and the picture was fine. The only differnce is that I installed the Sony HDR veiwing software on my pc but not on my laptop.

SOURCE: Get video off Sony Handycam DCR-TRV118 Hi8 to PC or Mac

Hi There,

MisterSony is quite correct about the Capture card.

While most computers have the built-in ability to capture sound via the 'Line In' port, digitally recording the Video signal is a totally different aspect.

Certain TV Tuner cards also have Video Capture abilities (in addition to the tuner they have a VCR input). They often work in tandem with your Video Display card via the 'Feature' connector.

Both types allow the incoming signal to be displayed and recorded digitally at your choice of speeds, resolutions and formats.
My preferences in the past have been the VideoBlaster line by Creative Labs. There are many others.

I'll do a little research as to what's currently out there and post my findings directly.
