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,
Shachar.

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.

Hello. I am J.H. Jansen, MD Radiologist from the Netherlands. Today i bought Canopus ADVC mini serial number EBC-109151. Bad product. During capturing (on Imac with Leopard but also on Macbook Pro...


Hello J.H. ,
This not a surprise . You just waisted your money .You need top quality material both sides to successfully capture analog/digital programs . A PCI or VGA internal card will do better but you also need a super powerfull pc to obtain satisfactory results , like a I7 intel model with great amount of DDR3 RAM .
I myself experienced that the best results are obtained with a stand alone DVD/Blu-Ray recorder , preferably with an internal HDD . This is really the best way , believe me .
Best regards,
fanaudi

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.

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.

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.

It sounds like the DVDs are protected by Macrovision copy-protection. The ADVC units are not designed to bypass Macrovision copy-protection.
