I bought what turns out to be the "old style" usb device at Best Buy. My camcorder has an S video out, so I used that connection, plus the two audio cables to connect to the usb device. I set the software to S Video, and digitized my first video. It appeared to work properly, and I proceeded to digitize MANY hours of tape. All the captures were recorded to .mov files, and played back in quicktime. Unfortunately I did not scrutinize those carefully. When I went to create my first movie with editing software, it became apparent that the audio and video are not synched. Off by perhaps 10 seconds.
Anybody have any ideas: how this happened? do I have to go back and redigitize hours of tape using a composite setting? Or is this device not capable of doing what it's supposed to do?
I'm using a MacPro with 10.6.8, 6 gigs of ram, NVIDIA GeForce CT 120 graphics card.
