I am confused about what I should have received with my purchase of the Easy VHS to DVD for Mac.
Does anyone have information to clarify any of the following issues?
What I received in the package does appear to match what is described in the reviews or on the ROXIO web page.
1 capture device
1 adapter for Video/Audio connections
1 USB Extension Cable
1 CD with only two items: the Roxio Video Capture.app and its Documentation.
The web page states that Roxio Easy VHS to DVD for Mac Contents:
Installation CD, including Easy VHS to DVD Capture software
Roxio® Toast® 9 Basic disc burning software
[*]Roxio Video Capture USB hardware
USB extension cable
Video Inputs: Composite video (RCA) and S-Video (mini-DIN)
Audio Inputs: Stereo audio (RCA)
First, should Toast Basic have been included?
The package does NOT list Toast Basic as part of the contents.
But the ROXIO web page does, as noted above.
Second, the version of the Roxio Video Capture app I received is v2.0.1, dated 04 Oct 2012.
The "single" screen of this app looks nothing like the "multiple" screen shots advertised on the ROXIO web page for this product.
The reviews appear to only discuss versions such as v1.0.3 for the Mac.
In addition, the ROXIO web page only provides an update to v1.0.5 for download.
If v2.0.1 is the current version, why isn't there an update to v2.0.1?
Third, the documentation included appears to match the app's single screen for the video capture. But then the documentation describes using a "Preview" and "Trim" function, plus a "Save and Send" function. None of these functions are available on any buttons or menus within the Roxio Video Capture.app (v2.0.1) as far as I can find.
I am expecting a replacement package from Amazon.com because of these issues.
But if the replacement is the same as the first package, how do I purchase the correct package?
Or is there a better choice?
One alternative is to purchase Toast 11 Titanium or Pro.
But it is not clear to me if these packages contain the Capture Device and cables.
