Hi from Italy. After you install Snow Leopard, the sound of VHS to DVD will not work. The VCR works perfectly and RCA cables are well inserted. The video works well. I know what's the problem?  sad.gif

Sorry I can't help you, Marco, because I have no sound with OS 10.5.8.  (actually, I get sound for about 10-20 seconds, then silence.  Video is OK, just no sound)

Hi guy's.  I have the same problem with my sony Hi8.  Audio is week with a loud busing sound.  Roxio doesn't help much.

Sorry you're having problems, too.  It appears that Roxio released a defective product.  Apparently it doesn't work with Apple's latest OS, Snow Leopard, either.  I'm fortunate in that my old Sony TRV-30, which is still going strong after 8 years, has analog-to-digital pass through capability, which allows me to copy my VHS and Hi8 to mini DV tape, then edit in iMovie HD 06.  

I bought Easy VHS to DVD hoping to make the process of getting analog video to iMovie easier, but so far, Easy VHS to DVD has been a waste of my time and money.  Even if I had sound, Easy VHS to DVD did not recognize my older version of iMovie (iMovie HD 06), and that's after I dumped iMovie 09 from my hard drive.   Frustrating, to say the least.

Hi guys, I don't have a MAC but here is a thought…

Do you have another source to test with?

For example a DVD Player or TV that has the necessary RCA or S-Video output???

This will help to isolate the problem.

Also, MarcoGEO is most likely using a SCART adapter??? The 'picture w/no Audio' is typical of a SCART that is not designed for RCA output. Take the SCART to any electronics shop and tell them what you are trying to do with it. They will know.

Of course as scooper points out – Snow Leopard is a bust with this product! sad.gif

Same problem here as in Italy.  No sound transfer, thought video comes through using Snow Leopard. No specific response from Roxio despite trying several times.

You might like to check Pierre Igot's blog at http://www.betalogue.com/2010/01/06/elgato-video-capture/ He describes the "no sound" issue with the Elgato Video Capture device which looks very similar to the Roxio. Seems if you toggle the sound "off" while transfer is taking place but omit to toggle it back "on" before quitting the program it saves this to preferences. When you re-open the program it still has sound toggled "off" and you have to go through the "connect video" and "connect audio" screens to switch it back on. Haven't tested this myself but it might be worth a try.
