i love a well informed person with computers. so many people post here and don' t give any other information; and for that i thank and congratulate you. now for your resolution.
i have read up on this particular unit and with this one i have found several hundred issues with the quality. especially when viewing on larger LCD screens.
knowing this, i suggest the upgraded model.
Canopus ADVC 300 Analog / Digital Video Converter......http://www.firewire-1394.com/canopus-advc-300.htm now with that said you mentioned you have a pinnacle av/dv card. my question involves the issue with your firewire. on most cards of this nature they want to be "alone". meaning that the card wants to be in a pci slot to itself with no neighbors. i suggest putting it in the very first slot available to avoid this and then putting your other cards in the remaining slots. this card you are using is also a little outdated. here is a better card....http://cgi.ebay.com/Compro-Videomate-C500-PCI-DV-Analog-Capture-Card-2-/170586107840?pt=AU_Components&hash=item27b7b96fc0#ht_1080wt_905
If you have any problems let me know and please leave positive feedback for me.
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.
this problem can be caused by many different things, I would recommend you try the following:
1, I would first uninstall the software and drivers for the stick and then clean the computers registry using a program such as the free for 30 days tune up utilities available from http://www.tune-up.com/products/tuneup-utilities/
2, Download the latest drivers from AverMedias website instead of using the ones provided on the CD
3, Make sure you have the latest drivers for your graphics card, updates are available from the graphics card manufacturer.
4, Try the stick in a different USB port
5, Defrag your harddrive
If after all this the stick does not work I would return it to the manufacturer and ask for a replacement to rule out that it is the stick and not your computer
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.
Yes, but make sure the model type is what is listed below although they should all be the same today as there are no standards war. For your PC you will need a video capture card unless your video card has it, chances are it doesn't. You would have an adapter already that came with your video card that has plugs coming out. There would be 5 or 6. If you don't go to tigerdirect.ca or newegg.com and do a search for "video capture card" Prices range from $50 and up. Get one with the best warranty is my advice and if you wish I will find one for you from a reputable card maker. Just ask me by commenting below. And if you have any questions about the details below just ask me by commenting back to me.
