PAL Problem and ADVC110

I have a camera that outputs PAL-B format. I can read the camera with my PC using a Plextor TV-402U withouth any issues other than some frame rate issues that I am hopping to solve by using the ADVC110. However, the issue I have with the ADVC110 is that the PAL is, for lack of a bettery phrase, jittery. I see the vertical lines "jitter, and repeat. I do that have the problem with the Plextor and the Plextor is set to PAL-B format. I also have tired teh ADVC110 with the same camera in NTSC mode and it works fine, it is just the camera does not do as well in NTSC mode vs. PAL. Any ideas why this may be happening with this video capture box. I have seen the issue with Windows Movice Maker, ULead Video Stuideo, and even the bundled Neo software from Canopus.

Thanks,

John

It's difficult to tell what's really going on by looking at the PC monitor. You should generate a DV file and play it back through the ADVC to a TV and see.

The issue is interlacing. Since the two fields of interlaced video are originated at different points in time, when you play both fields on a non-interlaced display like a PC monitor, you see the two combined and they don't match up. So you get half of a ball before the line, and half of the ball after the line and it looks funny.

Hi - My question is basic - If I have a NTSC DVR can I use an external PAL tuner to enable me to receive and record NTSC and PAL signals?


There should be an output option that you change to NTSC (on your external tuner), Dvr's are pretty "proprietary", and are very sticky about accepting non-proprietary signals. For instance, a sattelite dish dvr, will not accept these inputs, nor will their hard drives re-format or zero out.

PAL VHS format


I'm not sure I understand your problem. What are you using that is PAL? If your VHS tapes are in PAL then the TV Wonder card, which can only handle NTSC format, will not produce a picture and you will not be able to transfer your movies. If they are in NTSC (U.S. or ***) then you should be able to transfer them just fine if you are using a computer from the same region. If you are using a computer from a different region (e.g. EUR) then this card is not your best solution.

Yes you can. I have that very same setup using a surveilance cam as my webcam =)
Yawcam is a pretty good allround webcam application with lots of features, I recommend it!

Cant capture video


Not having camcorder control is normal, as the ADVC110 doesn't translate DV (AV/C) control to anything else. It just accepts and replies to deck control commands so the capture application doesn't get stuck waiting for a response.

First off, make sure you only have the ADVC110, your VCR, and your computer connected. No other Firewire devices.

Be sure your have the output from your VCR connected to the ADVC's input. Connect your VCR's output to your TV. You should see in iMovie the same image you see on your TV, slightly delayed.

ADVC110 - not recognised by computer


If you're using the AC adapter, try it without (using a 6-pin to 6-pin Firewire cable) the AC adapter.

Otherwise try a different Firewire cable.

No color from VHS on DVD/VHS player


There may be an input selection between Composite and S-Video that needs to be toggled in your Hauppauge software.

Your Hauppauge card may also be in the wrong signal format mode (NTSC or PAL). Your source device and your Hauppauge card need to be in the same mode (both NTSC or both PAL) for the capture to work properly.

If your NV-VP33 is a SCART output, then you may need to check your SCART adapter and your device as not all devices output both S-Video (Y/C - two signals) and Composite (CVBS - one signal) type signals.

If your SCART adapter has both Composite and S-Video outputs, try the other one.

And finally... if you're playing an NTSC tape/DVD in a PAL player, it doesn't mean the output is true NTSC 3.58. Most times it's NTSC 4.43 which is OK for TVs, but NOT okay for video capture devices. Video capture devices need true NTSC 3.58 to sync the color carrier properly.

CANOPUS ADVC110 AUDIO PROBLEM MY PROBLEM WITH THE AUDIO IS WHEN PUT RCA MONITOR THE AUDIO COME BAD.


Does the audio play back OK on the computer? Sounds like the audio level is incorrect.

Make sure you connect the audio output to a Line input, not a Headphone or Phono input.
