I have the latest update of the Easy VHS to DVD software.
The vhs-player is a Philips VR 550.
I use a brand new, high quality scart to s-video cable. As I said, it works with the vhs-tapes I captured earlier with the scart-composite cable, only bad video quality. No color, and with lines. With the composite cable, the transfer was fine.
With the tape in question, the composite cable produced no video ("no signal"), audio was fine. The S-Video cable gives the same "no signal" message.
I checked the direction of the scart plug. Did software update on my mac, checked all the cables, restarted all hardware.
I don't know what else to try. I'm hesitant to buy other video capture devices, as almost all of them get bad reviews.
Thanks, all help is greatly appreciated.
