    Connecting Speed To Router

    Just curious about how long it should take for a computer to recognize a router that is connected by ethernet cable? Operating in Win 7 OS and the computer is connected to a Linksys WRT160n-v3. After boot-up has completed, the computer takes about 40 seconds to connect. This seems rather long considering that the computer is hard-wired to the router. I am pretty certain that my laptop connects wirelessy at a faster rate. So does the iPad.

    Typing Problems On Roxio Forum

    BrianR, I looked at your profile and see that you're using Win 8. That most likely explains why you couldn't find spell checker as the directions apply to Win 7.

    Typing Problems On Roxio Forum

    Of course, not definitively answered is why having the Win 7 spellchecker enabled is not compatible with the Roxio Forum?

    Typing Problems On Roxio Forum

    I would like to set the record straight. Decided to boot up in Win 7 OS. Opened IE11 and went to Tools>Internet Options>Programs Tab and clicked on Manage Add-Ons. Then clicked on Spell Checker. Much to my surprise Spell Checker was enabled. I had previously disabled it. So it was disabled again. Thinking that it may be resetting itself, Win 7 was closed and rebooted. Went back to Spell Checker and it was still disabled. I am now typing this post without any typing problems. As indicated by Jim Hardin in the previous post, the squiggly red line that was described in my prior post, no longer appear as a word is typed. Disabling IE 11's built in spellchecker appears to solve the typing problem. At least while I'm typing this post. Internet Explorer 11 may have other problems with this forum, but it seems that at least disabling spellchecker cures the typing problem.

    Typing Problems On Roxio Forum

    Here's my experience with the typing problem. It does not occur when using WinXP and when IE is used as the browser. Right now, the computer is booted up in Win XP. Thus, I'm typing this post using Win XP and IE as the browser and not having any typing problems. The problem only occurs when using Win 7 and IE. A solution was found, but it's not permanent and it doesn't work all the way through a typing session. This solution was found by accident. When first starting to type a sentence, the problem doesn't occur. An entire sentence may be completed without a problem. As typing continues the problem becomes worse. That is, a keystroke is made but the letter does not appear on the screen, and a squiggly red underline appears. Here's what I found that temporarily solves the problem. And, it's not very elequent or convenient. The mouse pointer is moved off the the typing area to some other location on the screen. The mouse is left clicked which removes the blinking position curser from the last typing position. The mouse pointer is now moved back to the former curser position and a right click of the mouse is done to re-establish where typing is to start again. Thereafter, typing proceeds normally for a time until the problem occurs again. This is not an elequent solution. Hopefully, the description of how it is temporarily solved might provide a clue as to how to permanently solve the problem.

    Monitoring Lp Music

    I don't have NXT2, but I do have some experience with Sound Editor on Roxio Creator 2011 and the problem with hearing what is being recorded. It might help to know what operating system you are using. The problem you are having could very well be related to how the sound is set up on your computer.

    60Hz Or 120Hz Tv

    The difference between 60fps and 120fps is the refresh rate. That is, the number of frames, so to speak, that are displayed per second. What does the 120fps mean to the tv picture? Well, that depends on what you are watching on the tv. That is, if watching a sporting event , or a fast moving action movie, then the faster refresh rate will smooth out movement. A quarterback throwing a tight spiral pass will look very smooth on a 120fps tv, while it might be somewhat blurred on a 60fps tv. Some people cannot discern a difference between refresh rates unless watching both side-by side. Your video camera is shooting at a faster speed so it should capture fast movement without blurr. However, it will only shoot at 720p, not 1080p. The bottom line...if you watch a lot of sporting events and want the smoothest movement without any chance of blurr, then go with 120fps. If on the otherhand, this isn't important, go with the usually less costly 60fps

    Audio Capture

    I can't believe that this audio capture continues to be a frustration. Have not been working with Creator 2011 on Win 7 very long. In the process of recreating a slide show production from 6:3 format to 16:9 format and eventual burning to ACVHD disc. Right now I am working on Adding Background Audio. In preparation for editing a audio track, I've come across some very different sound settings in Win 7 as compared to Win XP. For example, opening up Playback Devices, when Speakers is enabled and Digital Audio is disabled and an audio track is played from Windows Media Player, the audio track can be heard. When Digital Audio is also enabled, no sound is heard. However, disabling Digital Audio means record does not function. What are the settings to be to both hear and record the desired audio track?

    Audio Capture

    For anyone interested in a solution to the problem that began this thread, here it is. When Win 7 OS was installed, the Microsoft drivers for the internal hi def audio device were the only ones installed. Consequently, the Realtek audio device which also exists on the computer was not recognized/utilized while running the Win 7 OS. Looked up the number of the Intel motherboard, went to Intel's download website and found the appropriate Realtek 64 bit drivers for Win 7 OS. The Realtek audio device is now recognized and operating. Made the appropriate settings and now it's possible to hear the audio track that is playing in WMP, while at the same time recording the track in Sound Editor.

    Audio Capture

    The reason Win 7 OS can't record audio from WMP while also playing the audio sound is that the Win 7 OS uses a Microsoft internal Hi Def device that is different than the Realtek device used in Win XP. On my computer in Win 7 OS it has a location of 2. The driver date is 11/19/2010, and is version 6.1.7601.17514. A check to determine if there is an update, the computer returned that the driver is up to date. The Realtek Hi Def audio device is at location 65535. Its driver date is 3/27/2012 and is version 5.10.0.6602. No need to pursue this any further.

    Audio Capture

    Just out of curiosity, how do you have your "Playback" and "Record" devices set? Here is how the listed devices are set on my computer; Playback Tab: Speakers icon- enabled Headphone icon- disabled Digital Audio (S/PDIF)- disabled Record Tab: Microphone icon- (front) active Not Plugged In Microphone icon -(rear) active Not Plugged In Line In (two RCA type plugs as icon - rear panel 3.5 mm jack, dark blue dot to represent plug, active Not Plugged In The 3.5 mm plugs on the rear of the computer are; pink, green and light blue. The powered speakers are plugged into the green plug. The reason for remarking that Win 7 OS may be deficient is that XP can do what Win 7 hasn't, utilizing the same integrated audio card. Seems odd.

    Audio Capture

    I suppose this is another reason not to like Win 7 OS. Here's what is odd. Performing this same task in Win XP, it is possible to open Windows Media Player, minimize the window to about 3" high at the bottom of the screen, and then open up Sound Editor and minimize the window to about the same height and have the window above WMP window. Two program windows on the monitor screen. One is WMP, the other Sound Editor. It is possible to start playing an audio track in WMP, hear the sound of the audio track, open up the Record window in Sound Editor and record the audio track in Sound Editor while the sound track continues to be heard in WMP. Same computer, with dual boot operating systems. I've performed this operation a number of times in the past. And, most importantly, the only output from the integrated sound chip is the output where speakers are connected. On the "Capture Sound from sound card" option described by REDWAGON, your correct it isn't available on the computer. What is shown in Sound Editor (Record) is "Capture From", but the box is entirely blue. In otherwords, nothing. The "Input" box indicates "Line Volume". Finally, the "Record Internet Audio" button is highlighted. However, the supposed improved Win 7 OS is apparently incapable of performing the same task. At least, I haven't found a means to do this within Win 7. Please don't ask why I would want to do this. Such an explanation would just divert attention from the discussion at hand. I've been able to get around the problem. I did the audio editing in Win XP, saved the audio track in XP, and then accessed the audio track after booting up in Win 7. Copied the edited track to the desired file in Win 7 and it worked like a charm. Possibly someone else has a solution to how the sound settings can be made to accomplish the same objective. However, most on this forum would probaly not want to waste their time with this issue. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Audio Capture

    I've tried every combination of settings in the Playback Devices and Record Devices and yet, however the settings are made, either the sound from WMP can be heard and record doesn't work, or sound can't be heard but record works. The sound card that is used is an integrated card. There is just one speaker output plug, and it is from the sound card. Clicking on the Music-Audio app produces the same result as previously described.

    Audio Capture

    The audio device/chip is a Realtek. The computer is dual boot. I have used Creator 2011 on Win XP and was able to listen to a audio track that was being played in Windows Media Player, while at the same time recording the audio track to Roxio's Sound Editor for future editing. Tried to do the same thing in Win 7. The same Creator 2011 program has been installed on the Win 7 OS. Going to the Sound settings in Win 7, there are the icons for Speakers, Microphone front and rear, and the icon for Digital Audio (S/PDIF). If the speaker icon is enabled I can hear the audio track, but cannot record. If Digital Audio is enabled, the audio track is not played while recording. How do you get both the sound and recording?

    Burning Avhd

    My bad. The correct title of the window that appeared at the conclusion of Render is "Make Movie". This is part of Roxio 2011\Video UI and is located in C:\Program Files\Roxio 2011\Video UI. Looking through the binder of Roxio instructions that I've printed and retained through the years, I did find a hard copy of the Roxio process for making an AVCHD disc. On the 3rd page of the process instructions, which shows the Render window and progress therefrom, I wrote in pencil that after rendering finished, the "Make Movie" window appeared which contained lines to input "Destination, Purpose, Video Fill Quality and Fill Name". There are no accompanying notes that describe how I handled the Make Movie window. That is, did I complete the information, or did I just close the window? The fact that my computer froze upon this window appearing may be unique to my Creator 2011 installation on my computer, because there is no reference to this occurrence in the instructions for the Roxio process. Or that it occurred may be a one time event. As stated previously, it seems that this software can be unpredictable at times. It works brilliantly for much of the time, but then it hiccups.

    Burning Avhd

    Created 2 slide shows each made up of a number of images, with various Pan & Zoom motions and music tracks. This is a re-creation of 2 old slide shows that were burned in normal definition. This was prior to buying a high def flat screen TV and BlueRay player. The first of the 2 slide shows burned okay and played on the BlueRay player. The second began the encoding process, etc. and concluded at 100%, but with the following message. "Project_Build to Device() author script call failed. Error while writing format." The DVD remained untouched. That is, no burning occurred. The DVD discs are Verbatim. Have never encountered this problem or message before. Any thoughts why this happened? Is there any clue that can be looked at to find the problem within the slide show, or will it be necessary to begin the slide show building process again? Thanks.

    Burning Avhd

    The respective lengths of the two slide shows are 14+ and 16+ minutes. As to the "Movie Maker" window, I don't know how to explain where it came from, it just appeared immediately after the rendering process concluded. I do know that there is a Microsoft program with that name. The computer froze with the "Movie Maker" window in the foreground and the Render window behind it. Could not X out of the Movie Maker window nor the Render window. That's when Task manager was opened and used to get out of the frozen condition. In any event, the AVCHD burn was successful. I may do the Roxio process again just to see if the Movie Maker window appears again.

    Burning Avhd

    Here are the results. Following Roxio's process for making an AVCHD did the trick. Was able to successfully burn the 2nd slide show. However, the process certainly requires more steps and time than exporting the completed VideoWave production to MyDVD, and then burn it. Which by the way has successfully worked for me a number of times in the past without ever encountering the error. The total time from start to finish using Roxio process was about one hour. Addressing muguggi's question and comment about a problem within the slide show. The 2nd slide show is certainly different from the first by obviously having different images, soundtrack, differing Pan & Zooms and finally in length. The difference in length is only about 2 minutes. Transitions are the same. Other than those features, both slide shows were constructed in the same manner. If indeed the problem is within the slide show, it would be informative to have an explanation of how the problem is cured by using the Roxio process. By the way, I did encounter something that was not described or shown in the Roxio process directions. After the rendering process finished, a "Movie Maker" window appeared. Everything froze at this point. The only way to close both the Movie Maker window and VideoWave was to open Task Manager and end the task. After this I was able to open VideoWave again and complete the burning process steps. The burned AVCHD plays perfectly with the BlueRay player. Images were great on the hi-def TV. A thank you to sknis for the link. Will continue to use the Roxio process for further productions.

    Burning Avhd

    Thanks for the information. It hasn't been tried just yet, but will do. It certainly is odd to have this problem occur after creating and burning at least 15 or so AVHD slide shows by just exporting the VideoWave production directly to MyDVD and either burning directly to disc or creating an iso file in conjunction with burning to disc. Even in this current instance, the problem didn't occur at all with the first slide show production. That is, after 3 attempts with the 2nd slide show production using DVD+RW discs, the same message appeared. Thinking there might be a problem with the DVD+RW discs, a fourth attempt was made with a DVD+R disc. Same results. Concerned that the problem might be with the Creator software or with the burner, it was then decided to see if the problem would occur with the first slide production. It didn't even after burning 3 additional discs. One never knows with this software when it will come up bite one in the ....I suppose it goes to its finicky nature. Compared to what had been a very easy and simple 2 step process for burning a AVHD disc, now becomes a more complicated method. Yuck. But, thanks again for a solution. Will report on the results.

    Using Revo To Uninstall Creator 2011

    I certainly can't explain why Revo behaved as it did. I should also add that the behavior was not a single event. After the first attempt trying to uninstall Creator 2011 with Revo uninstaller and with the uninstaller program stopping at the scan window, I exited out of the program and rebooted to Win 7. Upon reboot, the Creator 2011 icon was gone, but Roxio files still remained on the Win 7 drive. Creator 2011 was then reinstalled and the uninstall process begun again. This was carried out 3 more times with identical results. I finally decided to unplug the XP hard drive, rebooted the computer to the Win 7 drive and began the uninstall process again. As reported, Revo did the uninstall without any difficulty. The pop up window with the message about Direct X9 did not appear.
  21. I have Roxio Creator 2011 SE installed on both Win XP and Win 7, and each OS is installed on 2 separate HDs on the same computer. Began the uninstallation of Roxio Creator 2011 SE from the Win 7 drive using Revo Uninstaller. After the configuration for uninstallation began, it paused and the following window appeared; "Direct X9 is installed in the same location as Roxio Creator 2011 SE. Leftovers will be found from both applications! Carefully check the ones you want to remove." I stopped the uninstallation process because of not being certain what the message means. That is, does it mean that Direct X9 will show up in the Leftover files for both the Win XP drive and the Win 7 drive, or does it mean Direct X9 file will show up in 2 places on the Win 7 drive? If it means that Direct X9 shows up for both OSs, does that mean Revo uninstaller is scanning both hard drives even though Revo uninstaller is only installed on Win 7 and the computer was booted up in Win 7? Under the dual OSs on one computer, is there a risk that Revo uninstaller will uninstall Creator 2011 files on the Win XP drive?

    Using Revo To Uninstall Creator 2011

    Finally was able to uninstall Creator 2011 entirely, but only after physically disconnecting the Win XP drive. The pop-up window did not appear this time. Revo uninstaller progressed the uninstallation process without any problems. At this point, I can only conclude that somehow Revo uninstaller was scanning the XP drive and found the Direct X9 files.

    Using Revo To Uninstall Creator 2011

    Performed the uninstall of Creator 2011 with Revo uninstaller. Revo progressed to the "Performing initial analysis and uninstall" window and has remained there. It evidently uninstalls some of the program, but is not progressing to the leftover files scan. It has not progressed to the point where the Scan button becomes active. At this moment, it has been stuck for 30 minutes. Is it possible that the scan step has been stopped because of the pop-up window indicating that Direct X9 is installed in the same location as Creator 2011 SE? By the way, the pop-up message appeared immediately upon initiating uninstall and prior to the window indicating "Uninstalling Revo Uninstaller". Any thoughts?

    Using Revo To Uninstall Creator 2011

    What you have described makes sense to me. The pop up message, and how the message is phrased resulted in wondering if Revo during the uninstall process was also reading the XP drive. It didn't make sense to me but I thought it wouldn't do any harm to ask. Thanks for the input.
  25. outerbank

    Using Revo To Uninstall Creator 2011

    I performed a dxdiag on both Win XP and WIN 7 systems. Win XP shows 9 versions of Direct X9, all dated 12/25/2011. Within Win 7 there is only one Direct X listed, which is Direct X11. Hence, it would appear that Revo uninstaller after Creator 2011 is uninstalled, and then proceeds to the Leftover files scan, it may also be scanning the hard drive where Win XP is installed. At least the message seems to infer this. I suppose the only way to find out is to uninstall Creator 2011 and let Revo do its scan for leftover files to see if the Direct X9 files are listed. If they are, it would appear that these files should be unchecked before hitting the delete button. Any thoughts or recommendations?
