Thank you. I have used both composite video and Medium quality settings and it does not make a difference. The only difference is that the High Quality wouldn't actually save a "video" whereas the Medium did - but still no picture or sound. It also won't allow me to launch the application before plugging in the USB device because it just prompts me to do so. I am using an older TV with a built in DVD and VHS, and the cable is connected to the only place on the TV that is available for connection. Hmm... Could the device be defective?
