video distortion

Question

I have a video band at the very bottom of my screen when capturing or playing back video I capture with the Roxio product. I do not see this same band when capturing with other devices. Is this adjustable? It does not appear to be tracking on my video camera which I originally thought since it does not distort with other capture devices.

It captures what it "sees"…

Thanks, however, the question is why does it see this when nothing else I use to capture sees this? I have the latest update in software, have tried using s-video as well as composite video. Both Panasonic DVD with input for composite does not reflect this or studio 8 capture devices don't as well.

Because it is electronic noise in the output from your camcorder…

 

But try this – use the DVD Player as a 'pass through'… Hook the camcorder to it as an input and plug the DVD Player Output into the USB Capture device.

 

I am hoping it will act as a boost or filter to that electronic noise.

 

Let us know how that works out.

Thanks so much for your attempt to help here. The camcorder hooked directly to capture does not show this distortion, only when playing back from tape. So the noise you refer to must be only when playing back from tape. Again, not sure why this is the case with this capture devices and not other products. Just playing back the tape without capture shows the band at the bottom when I monitor it. But not playing back the tape and just doing capture directly does not show the band. Doing capture to other devices or playing back on other devices does not show the band.

Thanks for the update, even if it leaves me bewildered :huh::lol::o

 

I think it is safe to say there is 'something' that Capture is sensitive to that others are not!

 

I guess you did not try using the DVD Player as a pass through? I realize this may not be convenient for many users.

 

Couple of other things to check… In the Home app click on Help – About and make sure that SP2 shows up in your Version Number.

 

You did not say what OS your PC is running. I want to double check the drivers and possibly an alternative capture. There is a pinned post at the top by cdanteek that has some excellent screen caps (Vista) you can put your Device Manager up side by side and confirm the 2, entries for the device with it attached.

 

If you XP, but only with XP, you can use Windows Movie Maker to capture with while using the Roxio USB capture device! Only works with XP though…

 

Dumb afterthought, you did record this in SP mode with the camcorder, didn't you??? (LP or less won't work right)

I used the DVD player as a passthrough but not Roxio's dvd player. And this works okay. OS = Vista. SP =1. I tried installing SP 2 and it tells me that the software does not exist. I tried using update and it tells me there are no more updates.
