Loaded updates.

tried different tapes, one was still in wrapper never used.

Different VHF player

 

Running System 7

AVG Internet Security

Doesn't max out computer performance

 

I'm nearly to the point of returning this product. Help, Please.

Scott, do you see that flicker on a DVD played on a standard DVD player and TV. Are you aware of the TV safe zone and overscan??

When I play the newly created DVD on a standard player connected to my TV I get the same flicker. I did notice some of the audio did get effected as well.

The flicker includes way more area than the edges typically considered the overscan and includes a lot of the safe area.

1) How are you capturing the video to your computer?

2) What computer do you have. Does it exceed the minimum specifications for video work.

 

3) When you captured, do you have your anti-virus running? If so, shut it off (not just pause it) and try again. In fact, nothing else should be running when you are doing the video capture no e-mail, no internet, not other programs that would cause a periodic interruption.

 

4) How old are the tapes and do they play well if the VHS is connected to your TV? (GIGO) Perhaps you are having a tracking problem with that VHS player.

1) I'm capturing it through the cabling provided in my Roxio kit

2) I have a new computer with duel processor and lots of memory, specifically so I could run media on it. When I'm capturing video it's running below 60% performance.

4) I've tried several different tapes, one still in the wrapper, and two different players. It all plays fine connected directly to my TV.

3) If a product requires me to shutdown everything to run it, it's time to return it. Having to go back and forth waiting on chat replies is especially frustrating.

 

I do appreciate those that took time to provide some guidence, but it's just not the same as a live tech support.
