Question about Diamond Multimedia ( VC500) Video Capture

1 Answer

Everything installed fine. I hooked up the One-touch Video Capture to a VCR composite video and started a VHS video. All I get on my O-TVC screen is a series of horizontal lines moving up and down. they occasionally change color from blue to green and back. What do I do? PS yes, I do have all the components powered and plugged in.

Hi,
Video source or some thing between this setup has system conflict, I means any thing is set on PAL color system and rest of things are set on NTSC so you are getting series of horizontal lines moving up and down on tv screen.
Please check specifications of all hooked units and make sure all are set on NTSC color system to get correct picture.
PAL and NTSC has difference of horizontal, vertical frequencies that is causing problem.
Thanks.

    All settings are NTSC. The VHS player was purchased in the USA and I manually set the O-TVC to NTSC. What else can be cuasing the problem?

    Low video level can cause of said symptom, video capture card or connecting AV cable need to be checked.

    What is low video level and how do I check it?

    Standard Video signal level is 1Vp-p and it can be measured with Oscilloscope only. Sorry for technical terms.

    You need to confirm every thing separately in that setup. TV is fine as VCR playback shows good picture, this also confirm VCR output signal too. Now plug dvd player signal in VCR input and check dvd playback picture in tv to confirm VCR input function.
    If tv shows good picture of dvd playback that means VCR input is fine. Now connect One-Touch Video capture device directly with TV to get its video signal in tv, if tv shows incorrect/ distorted picture that means One-Touch device is not good, return it to get replacement.

When I try to capture a VHS feed, importing from video composite, I get the message saying "no input signal". My VCR is old. Is it possible that this is the cause, or are there other things that I should...


Likely the VCR is unable to function properly anymore, however it would not hurt to check the cables. Some cables when they get old develop shorts in the wires this is also a probable cause. Try new cables first then a new VCR.

I need a picture of how to hook up the dazzle to the vcr


If your trying to capture from a vcr make sure that the cables "composite are connected at the back make sure it is plug in to the video out.

Next, connect the cables directly to the dazzle.

make sure that the vcr is on and it is playing.

In the program Instant DVD Recorder please go to the step 1 select the dazzle as your video source not pinnacle file capture.

Then click option check the VHS input.
Video input must be composite if your using the composite
Audio input must be the dazzle.

Diamond One-touch video capture audio doesn't work with s-video


i had the same problem.  it turns out the s-video does not carry audio so you have to hook up a separate audio line.  On my camera there is a mini plug a/v jack...so i run a mini plug out to a rca jack splitter and then run rca cords to the red and white jacks on the one touch....then it works great.

EasyCap Video Capture


Hi
I had the same problem. No picture and no sound.
Here is what I did to solve it.

1. I Un-installed the software and restarted the computer.
2. Placed the installation CD (that came with the product) back in the CD drive.
3. Click on "Install Driver" (this only installs the USB 2 drivers so that the computer can see the device)

Make sure you do not attach the Easycap Device before you have installed the USB Driver (as above).

4. Once USB Driver has been installed then plug in the Easycap USB Device, windows should then detect the new device, to make sure:-
5. Right Click "My Computer" "Properties" "Hardware" "Device Manager" check "Imaging Device" (which is where my STK1150 Driver was installed) and make sure it has no yellow exclamation mark next to it.

6. Go back to CD and "install the Uplead Software", you then have to Restart the computer.

Once all installed you can then connect your external device VHS Player/Camcorder etc to the Easycap device, using the Red/Yellow/White leads.

I like many before me, tried and I tried to get the image to play on the software "Capture" screen but all to no avail, I was pulling my hair out, I wasted two days on it, I finally decided that this product was a total load of rubbish and I had wasted my money and it had to go.

Then a major break through, some smarty pants made the comment about INPUTS & OUTPUTS, my prayers along with many others could have been answered ??....

I had actually plugged the Red/Yellow/White leads into the INPUT terminals of the external VHS Player, when they should be plugged into the OUTPUT terminals of the external VHS Player/Camcorder.

On a Camcorder the RED/Yellow/White terminals are usually Output terminals but on a VHS Player they are usually always Input only !!....

I tried running my Camcorder through the software and Hey Presto that worked a treat.

So in order to get my VHS to play through the software I ended up having to buy a Scart OUT (very important "OUT") Red/Yellow/White adapter (see link for product image)

Once all connected I pressed play on the VHS Player and I have to say that nearly fell off my chair "IT WORKED - IT WORKED - IT WORKED"

This is easy in a nutshell. from the cablebox into the VCR RF connection (ant in) then from the VCR RF into the TV RF in. The from the DVD composite video out and audio out into the VCR composite video in and audio in. This make the VCR the hub of your setup the VCR should be set to channel 3 and you can switch between the VCR and the DVD by using the VCR remote. Now for the cords: 1) Cable to VCR RF = Coaxial 2) Composite Video and audio out = RCA patch cable 3)Composite Video and audio in = RCA patch cable That is it. If your TV can support multiple inputs then use it as the hub. Cable Box to VCR RF (Coax cable) VCR to TV RF(coaxial cable) or VCR to TV Composite video, or TV Component Video (RCA Cable) DVD Player to Composite video, or TV Component Vido (RCA Cable), or Svideo (Svideo cable)

Video output from VHS recorder


does your television have multiple scart connectors? Sometimes some models have only 1 connector that will accept RGB signals... Another thing you can check are VCR settings - scart component video output is not "official" and hence you might need to look at some of the setting if you need to enable it. Another possibility is that your scart cable may not have your rgb signals connected (based on wikipedia reference: "not all SCART cables make use of all the pins, often leaving out RGB signals. In many cases there is also no way to see which type of signal that is currently displayed on the TV set."
