Input analog video, no signal


jiimieo

Question

Hello,

 

I am using a HP m8120n (Vista) wtih a built in analog video capture card recognized as a Hauppauge WinTV 418 Video Capture. I am connecting a Fujix-8 Viedeo Camera Recorder F122SW to the input jacks (seemingly correctly) and I have the correctoutput settings for the camera.

 

Roxio Creator Basic v 9 is indicating No Signal Detected.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions for what I might be missing? Thanks

Out of curiosity, you'll have to let me know just how FAST rendering video is on the Quad core. ;)

 

Sorry, I am just getting back to this discussion board. I had transferred some tapes, creating 2 to 5 gig files. I stopped, thinking these file are to large to later work with. It is time to get back to figuring out what I really need to do.

 

Can you please clarify what "rendering" means in this context? I didn't time anything, but it went fast. I can give you a better idea of timing as I continue with the project.

 

Do you have any comments on how much of the tape should be transferred before a new file is created? I also understand I should probably use a lower resolution. My current thought is that I should continue with the higher resolution for a master copy, and then I can work at breaking it down. I'm just not sure if I can work with such a large file. I'm probably going to use Adobe Premier Elements once converted from analog.

 

Thanks.

Use the software that came with the capture card.

EMC 9 Basic probably WAS the included software. When I got my HP MCE, none of the Hauppauge software was included which I thought was strange.

 

jiimieo - Make sure the camcorder is set to PLAYBACK or VCR mode. You will have to press the PLAY button on the camcorder manually. I can't find your camcorder with any search engine, but plenty of battery replacments. LOL If you have firewire, you would get much better quality if you used that instead.

Unfortunately, no firewire. The camera is at least 10 years old, so perhaps that will be an issue. however, I did have it working with TV Wonder USB 2.0 on another computer in the past. It is set to playback mode with edit also turned on as required. I tried 2 sets of cables. I do have a power adapter attached!

I don't think you have anything connected wrong. Sounds more like a Vista driver issue. Check the HP website and/or Hauppauge website for updated drivers, too.

 

Oh yeah... nice computer. I'm jealous. :) According to HP website, the TV Tuner is Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600. Here is the Hauppauge support page for that card.

 

Hey, thanks for your support. I just found the 1600 on the Hauppauge site. However, better news, I have it working. I needed to set it to Composite Video 2. I am now seeing it, so I will try recording later when I return.

 

All the best

Ahhhhhhh! I should have thought about that right away. With my Hauppauge card, which actually isn't in this machine anymore, I had to use the Composite Video 2 seting to see the video. Sorry I forgot about that.

I have had the same problem with the same computer (HP m8120n), however, all of the above fixes have not worked for me. I am trying to use the front ports to transfer VHS to my computer, but it can't be recognized. I have also use the rear S-video port with no luck. I have used not only Roxio, but Nero and WinTv, all to no avail. I'm starting to think of 2 things:

 

1) Vista driver conflict/issue (yes, I have d/led the drivers from Hauppauge)

2) My HVR-1600 is bunk.

 

If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
