Tearing Problem With Vhs Tapes - Split



Just to let everyone know I too had the tearing problem with VCR tapes and the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus. I tried multiple different PC's and different VCR's and even did the VCR pass through and it would still have the same results with the tearing. What's interesting is I was able to convert about 30 8MM analog tapes with the 8MM camcorder connected to the Roxio and it worked perfectly but when I connected VCR's it was a mess. So I ended up using an older USB Hauppauge WINTV PVR2 and when I connected the VCR over coax and used the BeyondTV software to tune to channel 4 everything worked perfectly. So by this I knew it wasn't a problem with the VCR's players or the VCR tapes but it has something to do with the way the Roxio USB device or software handles tracking on the VCR. Whenever the VCR has the track to correct the tracking the Roxio just draws the tearing at the tops of the video whereas any other video converter I have tried is able to handle tracking just fine. Because of this I would NOT recommend the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus if you want to convert VCR tapes. Thanks

The issue is somewhere in your setup/equipment... The device has been out for 8 years and the number of people with tracking issues is probably less than 10...


Were it the device or the software, would have been more than that -_-


The fact that it worked without a problem for your 30 camcorder captures should give you the clue ;)
