Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Bet ya can't solve this one(VCR to computer problems

Ok, my old VCR will go through my ADVC-55 capture device and into the computer via firewire and be viewed in my softare. So why does my brand new panasonic DMR-ES47V not do it? I have all the in put and output jacks connected correctly. I am using S-video out. I have been stumped on this for three weeks now and yes it is driving me nuts.

Thanks very much.

    I just tried detaching the s-video cable from the DVD/VCR and now i am capturing something. I thought that s-video would be preferrerd over RCA cables. It never dawned on me that by not using the s video cable it would work now. But the video is a little out of sync maybe by a half second with the audio.

    The tapes I am transfering are older VHS and VHS-C type. Is VHS-S for use with s-video only???



    Thanks

Just realized it's EZ47, not ES47.
Will have a look around, maybe just need to switch the output to an external device with the remote. Have you read the manual properly.

Can i record data from vcr to dvd


If you want to convert VCR tapes (VHS etc) to DVD discs then your best bet is to buy a second hand combo VCR DVD unit that will make life easier for you.

Otherwise you can buy adapters that need to be converted to PCs and this can be messy.
This article gives some idea about using PC capture units with software.

Rolling picture and blue screen


According to my Satellite provider tech support. More and more channels are being encoded so that recording equipment cannot capture the signals to prevent piracy. I know the premium channels use this technique now. I would call and ask tech support if there is any copy restrictions in place that would affect your VCR recording before doing any further trouble shooting on the VCR. If you can play pack a prerecorded movie fine with your VCR then it should also record fine. Also try watching the channel through the VCR tuner and I bet you will see the same pattern. The VCR can only record the signal it is given.

Hope this helps you,
Ron

Downloading video from Sony DCR-HC45 Camcorder using a 1394 Firewire. My PC is not recognising the connection. It did work at one stage without any problem but not any longer. What must I do


You have to go on Device Manager and delete the imaging device. Then uninstall old drivers and software used with the camcorder. With 32 bit OS (Win XP and Win 7 32 bit) install Nero 8 Essentails or any other video capture software. Do not plug in external device during install. After installation is complete, reboot your PC. Now you can connect your camcorder with firewire port and then open the nero software. Under video capture, it will detect your sony camcorder.

Dvd recording using a pc


The product you need is called the Pinaccle Dazzle - it is basically a red/white/yellow composite to USB connector - it also comes with software for capturing your videos in DVD format on your computer (or you can record directly to a DVD disc inserted in yuor computer). I purchased mine at Best Buy, but it is available in a lot of places. It works great, and I have been busily converting those old VHS's to my PC, and then from PC to DVD.

Good luck!

Playing dvd-r on machine


This DVD player does play DVD-R

I burn lots of DVD on my computer from my video camera.

The very best quality DVD for burning from your computer is Taiyo Yuden. Other brands seem to work fine for me also. You should only buy a small quantity of DVD's until you decide which brand you like best. Then it is a good idea to buy 50 or more at a time. There is not much price difference in brands. I get 50 at a time for about $35.

You need a decent software to capture and edit the video, and to create a DVD.

I use Adobe Encore and Roxio Easy Media Creator 10.

For the easiest to use software I recommend Roxio. It makes a nice DVD and it captures video as well.

If your video camera has a firewire (IEEE) port for digital video you can capture the video with Windows movie maker, Roxio or any software that came with your camera.

You must also have a firewire port on your computer. If it doesn't have one, it is easy to install a PCI card with one.

If your camera doesn't have a firewire port, you may need to use the analog video (composite or S-video) , but you will need a video capture device. You would also need to input the audio seperately on your line input of your audio card.

I can help you further if you need it, but it would be very helpful to know how you plan on capturing the video and what type of devices you are using.

let me know if you need more help, and if this information was helpful a good rating is a great way you could say thanks for the help.

Sometimes it can record on DVD-R Sony sometimes it doesn't.


So now I get an e-mail from Fix Ya asking me if I found a solution, if not they offer me a PREMIUM (Charge)Plan to help me solve the problem.

If I have solved my problem they want me to tell them how I fixed it for FREE.

Do you guys at Fix Ya use us as your employees to solve others problems and you collect the money? That is such a shame!

PAL to NTSC conversion


This is not a converting unit, it will play the format of the tape inside. To convert the signal you need one of the following:

1) A converting VHS player; they are fairly expensive.
2) A separate video converter (hardware); they run for about $200-$500; just put this between your VCR and the TV.
3) Capture the PAL on your computer using a software like Movie Maker via a Firewire cable. Than convert it to NTSC on your machine using software like Nero... do a search on Google for converting software. Or just watch it on our computer in PAL format, most computers do that... For this step I use a separate camcoder that has a passthrough feature. The VCR connects to it and the camcorder connects to the computer via Firewire.
4) send the PAL tape to a specialized shop for conversion. They normally charge $30-$40 for a regular 2h VHS tape.
