    Distortion On Top Of Playback On Pc

    Thanks, but this doesn't solve my issue... I have over 30 VHS Tapes to copy over...She too has her own project to complete. I just borrowed it to test it...but if I have to buy the same one she has, then I'm out the money I paid for this (Roxio). I would like to keep using mine and get it to work. I don't mind the EASY way to do it (Roxio) just don't want the Easy way out either...lol....

    Distortion On Top Of Playback On Pc

    To update : I have tried 3 different video capture software and 2 different USB dongles. I have updated video drivers to current. I have run a repair on Roxio. I have tried different VCR's (getting another one today=3rd). I have tried 2 different computers (Windows 7 & 8). I have tried Roxio with AND without the patch update. All with the same results. 1. The issue does happen when I use the Roxio software and dongle,constantly. BUT I can also have a coax cable out into TV (at the same exact time, having dual displays so to speak) I do not get the distortion on the TV, proving it's not the tape. 2. The issue does not happen when i use another video capture software when i use it with Roxio's dongle. This software would only allow me to test a 5 min slot without buying it, so i did it at a spot where it does it using Roxio. 3. This does not happen at all when I use another 3rd party software at all, issuing their USB dongle. Which belongs to someone else, but the audio sounds terrible on theirs. My next test will be, using my sister's software, and video only capture dongle and my (Roxio) audio capture Dongle and see what I get. I can do this using my sisters software in the settings, it allows me to choose the video and audio input devices. Roxio, won't. So I have spent a lot of time troubleshooting this, I am lost for lack of more and answers. Thanks for all your help and input so far..

    Ok, I"ll try a repair...The other software worked perfectly and it worked with Roxio's Dongle, Roxio is easier to use..hence the name "Easy".in their title...I'll do this tomorrow...

    I didn't use her software and my Dongle, I just use her whole set, software and Dongle and it works perfectly....(see above post #12)

    Ok, I just installed my sisters software and am using her "Dongle" and the video is working perfectly...So, It's either a software issue (Roxio) or Hardware issue (Dongle) that's Defective or not working properly. I'm up for your suggestion, I don't know how I'm going to get the Dongle Replaced here on the forums.. By the way, the Dongle was warm to the touch, is that normal?

    Ok, I tried this. I took one VCR output and put it into the input of another VCR then out to PC....This didn't help...Still shows the distortion. My sister has Honestech VHS to DVD Deluxe and said she don't have this issue. I'm going to borrow her software and connections/dongle and try that one for comparison. I'll be getting that tomorrow, so I"ll touch back. I have tried various ways now, including driver updates as mentioned above, different VCR's and Multiple Computers. Now its time to try another Software. For testing purposes, I will use my software and try her "dongle" (For lack of a better word). I'll let you know tomorrow or Saturday... Which I'll also be getting another VCR on Saturday too...

    Distortion On Top Of Playback On Pc

    Hi Jim, I cannot. I only have Video, Audio-L and Audio-R out. (As well as Coax for cable). It was hard to type on that PC, but While the output (playback) was running with Roxio into my PC, I saw this distortion. At the same time, I turned on my TV . To compare: I tried multiple VHS tapes and all the same result. 1. TV was perfect 2. Computer Monitor was distorted. I also installed this software on my other Windows 8.1 PC and got the same results, even with a Video Card not a part of the motherboard, but in a separate PCI slot. I was going to try to plug it into my TV but then I wouldn't be able to record it with Roxio. I'm wondering if the USB Dongle is defective? I have also updated the Software to the patch that is out too..
  12. Hi, I have just installed Roxio EASY VHS to DVD 3 Plus to a clean install of Windows 7 x64. I keep getting a distortion on the top of the video play back in Roxio, However, while it is still playing, I don't see it on the TV screen playback. It even records this way. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 (sp 1) with 3 GB of Memory. With and Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2160 @ 1.80GHz Radeon x300 Video Card. I have attached a screen shot to show the distortion. Any help would be appreciated. DxDiagx64.txt DxDiagx32.txt
