No Video Signal

Question

I've been reading a lot of threads about this problem and then I found this answer from Jim:

 

Your problem is most likely Win7 and requires a minor tweak to get it running!

 

Well what's that minor tweak? Because I think it might solve my problem.

 

And please don't ask me about versions, specifications or experiences with other devices. I have made enough tests and read enough threads to know that this thing doesn't work (with my VCR)... unless that tweak actually exists and works.

 

Thank you and sorry if I'm rude, but I think the easier they make software for products, the more difficult is to solve problems.

You think Roxio went out of there way to create software that would not work with YOUR particular brand of VCR?

 

You don't offer any information and ask us not to ask you any questions, how could anyone give you any help!

:D Of course not. I was just asking for Jim's secret tweak for Win7.

 

I have Win7 and the last version (third one according to the What version do I have? thread). Video connected through S-Video. I get the infamous No video signal.

How is the Roxio USB device connected to the PC, please be specific.

 

The VCR is on and playing? Have you tried composite yellow connection?

Is there a Scart connector involved in your configuration?.

 

If so, make sure you have the right one.

 

With the ZERO information you have provided, were just guessing at what your problem is......

I have tried composite yellow connection and the result is the same.

 

I thought the problem was that I used a Scart to S-Video adaptator :ninja: , but then if there's no video signal either with the composite video connection... :huh:

 

The USB drivers are OK too, according with the instructions in other threads.

 

That's why I was only interested in the Win7 tweak.

OK, how can I know if it's the right Scart connector?

 

I've never seen or used one. Here is a post from user ogdens recommending one. I'm not sure if this situation calls for a specific one or it will work for you? I think Ogdens will be back and reply in this post soon..

Here is a link to a Scart adaptor, that has worked for those having Scart problems:

Before you get into a possible Win 7 tweak, lets get your connections working correctly. Their is a myriad of Scart cables out there. Some are made to fit specific applications, the one's recommended on here will apply to MOST configuration's in that they will work as Input or Output (user controlled). In post #9 is an example of a composite cable. This is for using S-Video http://www.amazon.co...cart+to+s-video . These are just examples of what is available out there.

99.9 % of problems posted on here with users using SCART cables always blame the software.... in your case, we will see.
