Question

Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus.

Win10Pro

i3 processor

Intel HD Graphics


I have color distortion on the Onscreen monitor/recording window image. Goes for every VHS videos.


I played a VHS video in my old WINXP machine using Plextor digital converter, and the picture

there is just beautiful. It is actually more clearer and cripsier than on the TV screen. But, but.. I can't record in that software. "Record error" it says.


And since my EVD3 license is for one computer, I probably can't install it on the other computer.


Have tried other VHS recording software like AVS video recorder, Golden Videos VHS to DVD Converter and Veedub64. No difference.


Ran off and bougt me a new cable. Scart connection on the VCR side and S-Video on the USB dongle side. The result was even worse.


I'm located in Europe and using the PAL system, though my VCR also handles the NTSC system.


Anyone any clue?


Thanks for your attention!

Thanks for your reply, but the problem isn't about PAL vs NTSC. It is about colour distortion. Sorry that my bad english has confused you.

 

I searched the page you adviced for the words color/colour, but found no match.

The problem I think is the Scart Connector!

 

Why I pointed you to that post.

Maybe, but playing a VHS video to the TV is ok(Same scart connection). Also playing to my old XP machine(Plextor digital converter).And why scart->S-video is worser than scart->RCA is a mysterium.

Not so sure... Usually the SCART results in 'No Signal'

 

Since it seem to work on your XP machine, why not load the EVD software on there as a Test. that should not violate the Spirit of the License ;) (just skip the Registration part)

Who and what is connected with the S-Video?

 

Read scart adapter below.

I have plenty of "No Signal" messages too, before sound and picture shows up. The software seems to be slow.

 

Regarding the XP machine I'll try it out later this week.

 

Thank you!

Until today I have connected to the back of the VCR with a scart connector and connected at the other end to the RCA connector, on the USB converter cable.

 

As said earlier ,I tried a new cable today. Scart at the VCR end and S-video at the other end, You know, the end which stick out from the USB cable connector, supplied by Roxio.

No I don't!

 

No where in the getting started guide does it mention the use of a S-Video.

No I don't!

Page #13 says: Connnect a composite or S-Video cable between the Roxio adapter and Video Out of a VHS player.

Note: You must use a SCART Out adaptor to connect to European VHS players

 

I'm in Europe. Born and raised.

While we don't have SCART connections here like you do in Norway, we do know from other users that they can be troublesome....

 

The problem is that while most SCART connectors have RCA (composite) or S-Video plugs, many are NOT wired to give output :huh: Since you do get output, I think we can rule that out!

 

S-Video does not carry any Audio. Do you have the White/Red RCA plugs connected for Audio?

 

Lastly, it is possible, if you have a commercial tape, that you are encountering their copy protection.

Did the following today:
1: Installed Roxio video USB drivers onto my old XP machine(Skipped the software itself)
2: Installed AVS Video Recorder software too.
3: Made a connection to the VCR the same way as with the WIN10 machine using the Roxio Video Capture USB device
4: Played the video. No difference. Still color distortion
5: Replaced the Roxio Video Capture USB device with a similar device from Plextor(Pretty old. Not supported longer)
6: Perfect. No color distortion at all.
The problem - as I see it - must be either in the Roxio Video Capture USB device or in the Roxio USB video device drivers.

Yes, I understand it now. The picture you have selected for your account tells it all. What is actually the purpose of your presence in this forum?

You think by insulting people you can get the help you want?

 

What cd was implying is that like most capture devices, they are proprietary... Thus you cannot simply "install drivers" and think it will work! In fact the EVD device will only work with Roxio Software.

Insulting people? That exactly how I understood CD's comment to/about me.

The Roxio's drivers on a XP machine works just the same as in a WIN10 machine along with EVD software in Win10
