The currently bundled PIXELA software does not default to the correct audio settings. In the ImageMixer [Tool settings], confirm the USB Capture Device settings are set for an available [USB Audio Device]. This setting is not defaulted to the USB streaming mode.
The available USB audio device may be displayed as Sony Digital Imaging Device or USB Audio Device. When these choices are available, the Sony Digital Imaging Device should be selected.
If you are having any installation questions or problems with the PIXELA software, please let me know.
This solution is only applicable for the selected camcorder models. You can follow the steps mentioned below for the DCRHC36 models.
Turn on the computer.
On the computer, install the USB driver from the CD-ROM supplied with the camcorder.
Only the USB driver included on the supplied CD-ROM will properly enable the camcorder for USB streaming. The USB Streaming Driver can only be installed from the supplied Software CD.
Turn the camcorder on to the PLAY/EDIT mode.
Turn on the USB streaming feature in the camcorder menu. P-MENU? PICT.APPLI.Menu? USB SELECT? STREAM
Connect the USB cable to the camcorder.
Connect the other end of the USB cable to the computer.
Cue the video to the beginning of the video footage to be transferred.
Start the video capture software on the computer. You can try Software like Windows Movie Maker
oNOTE: The computer must have compatible video capture software to complete this procedure. Many video editing software applications include a capture function. If you have video editing software, you might not need a separate video capture application.
Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
Begin importing the recorded video with the capture software.
You need to get some AV cables and some sort of MPG4 Video/TV capture card USB, or PCI, whatever, also software to display captured images,now you connect up the camera to the input on the capture card, press play on VCR and Record on PC, and stream the video to the PC and save it wherever you want. Then you can manipulate after saving anyhow you wish. This software hardware combination will also allow you to watch,a Movie streamed in, and output to TV as well.at same time...with the right Video out card, any dual head monitor card will do,
Unfortunately is not possible directly - Your cam do not support USB streaming... But You may use any cheap video capture device like Pinnacle Studio movie box or similar to connect Your camera via S-video cable because Your camera has an analog output. Only one requirement - the capture card must have an S-video input or simply RCA video input. It's easy - connect video out and audio out of Your cam to the capture device and then connect USB of capture device to Your computer.
hi follow this steps:
Make sure that you have installed the USB driver for the handycam. You can download the drivers from this link:
Sony Asia Pacific Support Website--Download Page for HC40E USB Driver for Windows.
Connect the handycam to the AC adaptor (the same as putting it on charge).
Set the handycam to USB stream mode. (Press P-menu, press MENU, Press EDIT/PLAY, Press USB MODE, Press USB Stream.)
Set the tape at the point from where you want to start capturing in PC.
Connect the handycam and the PC with the USB cable. (USB-Mode appears on the handycam LCD / viewfinder.)
Start Windows Movie Maker. Click on the 'Capture..' link to start the wizard.
Select the Sony Digital Imaging Device. Click Next.
Specify the file name and path for the capture video. Click Next.
Select the desired capture format and Click Next. (Leave it to recommended setting if you are not sure.)
The dialog box now displays the Start Capture and End Capture buttons on the left and preview window on the right.
Play the tape on the handycam. The video from handycam should appear in the preview window of WMM.
Click the Start Capture button to start capturing the video. Click End Capture to pause or stop recording.
Click the Finish button. The .wmv file will be saved in the path specified in step 7.
Sony got back to me with the answer, so I will post it here for future reference. If there is no audio when USB streaming with PIXELA ImageMixer version 1.5 software on the Microsoft Windows XP operating system, change the USB capture device setting for sound to USB Audio Device. In the Image Mixer Tool settings, confirm the USB Capture Device settings are set for an available USB Audio Device. This setting is not defaulted to the USB streaming mode.
This would be the icon of an open end wrench in the top right hand corner of the capture environment screen.
Follow this procedure to change the USB capture device setting for sound in the Pixela ImageMixer 1.5 software.
1. In the ImageMixer window, click the USB Device Capture icon.
2. Click the Preferences icon.
3. In the Capturing/Recording Preferences window, in the USB Capture Device Setting section, click the down arrow to select the desired sound device.
4. Click the OK button.
For any request for processing or editing assistance you may visit the PIXELA help file. You may also contact them at the following website:
Make sure that the sound capture device setting is on USB audio. In image mixer - click on the USB icon onthe left of the screen and then click on the wrench icon in the upper right corner of the screen. That will bring up another window. In this window check to be sure that the sound capture device setting is USB audio.
ah. This happens to me sometimes. Well, for some reason it always works when i first open USB streaming tool( this program is not for recording)use the program to edit the video, like to fix brightness etc.
Then open capturing tool. This is what you use to capture the video to your computer. What i do is to press the play button in the program, not the capture button. The video on the camcorder and the video on your screen should start playing. I do this just to test the video if its gonna have sound or not. Then you rewind the video by pressing the rewind button in the program. After that press the capture button. Sometimes it records and you don't hear the sound on the computer, I'm not sure but maybe after its captured into the computer, the video will have sound. If you do record, but with no sound, record about a minute and then stop it. Go to where you saved the video and check if there is any sound.
Hope this helps you. Sorry if it's kinda confusing because i don' use the program no more. I use a DVD recorder which you connect your camcorder to the DVD player and it burns the video directly to a DVD. Its much mroe easier but you can't play around with it on the computer.
