Question about Pinnacle Dazzle Video Creator Platinum (230100037) Video Capture

I want to show powerpoint slides on a TV screen. I asked at Office Depot, and they suggested buying Dazzle box. I did. I can record from the VCR to the computer, but I still can't transmit from the computer to the TV. What did I miss?

Have you considered simply using a VGA to RCA cable where you plug the VGA into your monitor port and the RCA plugs into your television? Then you simply play the PowerPoint slideshow on your computer and it shows on your TV (Choose Video1, 2, or 3). Then you don't need Dazzle! You can get one at Radio Shack...

Besides Bshiltz excellent information there may also be alternatives depending on your computer / laptop capabilities

I have found a lot of VGA to component lead to be an unreliable method unless they were of a very high quality.

Lots of people are doing this and part depends on what your home theatre has to offer in the way of connections.

For sound most use the LINE OUT on a computer or laptop and connect that to a suitable input on the receiver using a 3.5mm to stereo phono lead.

If you are lucky enough to have an OPTICAL sound out on your computer and one on the home system that would be a better option.

For the video side again it depends on what your computer has to offer

If it has DVI and your TV or home system has DMI then that is the very best option. Remember to lower the resolution on the computer first and to check and of your graphics card options for dual display. A DVI to HDMI lead is needed for that

NVIDIA graphics cards seem to work best in this area.

If you have a VGA connector on your TV that is another great option and you would only need a VGA lead.

Some cards and laptops have S-VIDEO out. Lots of TV's and home systems have these and the display is quite reasonable. If using S-video connections use a GOOD quality cable.

Some people can only obtain a black and white picture so check your graphics card did not come with any special adaptor.

Another method is composite video Even that is not always 100%

Some laptops need a special S-video adaptor which is just a short little cable to properly enable the S-video and convert S-video to composite. That is probably the worst way to do it.

Using a VGA to component lead is also an option but results vary wildly from no picture to quite good. A lot depends on the quality of the lead once again.

I use the optical sound and DMI lead to power a 50" Sony with great sound and picture.

I need to record a cable show on to a vcr? how do you do it


I doubt you can do what you are asking. There are technical reasons, based on changes in television technology. Unless you understand the issues/technology, you would not be able to answer my questions.
If the output signal of the Cable TV box was NTSC (without copy protection), then you would be able to record the program on an NTSC VCR. Very unlikely at this time.
I suggest you buy a Digital Video Recorder, like the one Channel Master makes, and record your shows via a TV antenna. Over The Air OTA DVR 16GB Channel Master

No video from dazzle to pc


Hi and welcome to Fixyah,

I have something that can help you with, please checked if this is the same settings.

If you follow any of the videos, it won’t work!

Step 1: Install the Pinnacle Dazzle Video Creator Platinum software and make sure it works with the Dazzle DVC 100.

Step 2: Buy 3 RCA type Y cables. One male end, 2 female ends.

Step 3: Plug the male ends of the RCA y-connectors to the Dazzle DVC 100.

Step 4: Plug the Yellow, Red and White RCA connectors from the XBox 360 to the color matched female RCA y-connectors on the Dazzle DVC 100.

Step 5: Plug a second triple RCA connector into the other end of the color matched RCA Y Connectors.

Step 6: Plug the other end of the triple RCA connector into the TV.

Step 7: The tricky part no one ever mentions: On the XBox 360 video cable, there is a switch that switches from HDTV to TV. You must switch this to TV!

Let me know what happen.

I am running on a Dell XPS and my dazzle dvd recorder wont work.


Hi and Welcome to fixya!

I suggest to you to double click on Instant DVD Recorder Icon and choose go directly to Advance mode. Click next. On step number 1 click the pull down arrow and choose dazzle DVC 100. Click on options and choose video input. If your cable connection is the yellow red and white cable then choose Video composite, If S-video cable then choose Video S-video. If you have a VHS player click VHS input and click okay.
Next when everything is done turn your camcorder,vhs,vcr and then hit the play button.

That is the time that the video image is showing to the preview screen of the computer. Still not showing disconnect the dazzle device and place to another usb port.

If your dazzle device is not showing under step number one, you need to download and install the driver to Pinnacle Website.
