Thank so much.
I was trying to convert PAL Hi8 video and was puzzled that connecting my Sony camcorder directly to my Sony TV was colorfull but remained BW when connected through the ADVC-300.
Turning Off the NTSC switches did the trick: SW1 No.5 OFF and SW1 No.6 ON.

Thank you,

Sounds like you're feeding the ADVC the wrong broadcast format. Either PAL when the ADVC is in NTSC mode, or NTSC when the ADVC is in PAL mode.

Alternatively, your capture software may have a broadcast format setting as well, and that may not be matching what the ADVC is sending out. Remember that the ADVC does not do NTSC<->PAL format conversion, so NTSC analog input becomes NTSC DV, and PAL analog input becomes PAL DV.

Color on TV changes to black and white, then after awhile changes back

It is possible to be the box, and not your tv. A good way to test is to see if it does it when you are watching a dvd or another source. (game system, blue ray, ect) Hope this helps! Good luck!

Need Driver software

Which OS? If you are on Mac it just works straight away in iMovie, just bring up the import box and it should work, as for windows, I haven't tried it but I'm presuming that the same procedure will work in an editing suite on the import settings the device should be found.

No drivers are provided on the Canopus Website (company now known as "Grass Valley") however there is a compatability release note about windows 7 saying that it is certified to work with it.

I need an Canopus ADVC-500 Service Manual to reset the unit.

I read that one person had a problem that sounded just like this; it was due to a dip switch that was inadvertently flipped.

Macbook pro does not find canopus acdv110

How did You connect Canopus? Canopus has 2 Firewire slots - on the back and on the front. If You connect FW cable to a front slot, then, Canopus will not work. Only with external power supply. I´m offering the next proceeding:
1. Connect ADVC with FW cable 6 to 4 to Your macbook via back FW slot. The ADVC lights will now on. On front panel by default light is on mode "digital". If the light don't work - it's a Canopus problem. If light is up and working, then next step.
2. Go to apple menu-about this mac - more info - firewire. You MUST see here Your Canopus a a device. If so, go to the next step.
3. Connect Your VCR to analog inputs, on the front panel of Canopus.
4. Run FCE. If it says "apple firewire device is missing" then is something wrong with Canopus. If not, proceed to next step.
5. On the top of the front panel of Canopus, press button. The light changes from digital to analogue.
6. Press apple+8, then capture settings. Set the firewire device as uncontrollable device. Make sure that in capture window is "vtr ok". Turn the VCR on
7. Press the play button on capture window. In the window appears the screen of Your VCR. Then press play on VCR and then "capture now" on capture panel. Voila! Must to work.

I have a Panasonic hdc-dx1. I have taken camera footage but cannot transfer this footage onto the computer... HELP. It is an assignment due on Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello from Italy!
You need to install on your PC an AVCHD codec and a software in order to read the disk content. Nero 8 (with AVCHD plug in) can do it. I usually read the *.M2TS files with NeroVision, convert them with Canopus AVCHD converter and edit with Canopus Edius. That's all.

Vhs pal video not working

Change the DIP switch to PAL, unplug the unit (no power), then plug it back in. You need to power-cycle the unit to after changing DIP switch settings.

Also make sure that your capture application is set to PAL mode, if there is a NTSC/PAL setting.
