No Video Signal

Question

I purchased this today, installe it fine and hooked my old video camcorder to the unit. It captured the entire tape fine and saved the video to my hard drive. I started another tape playing and a new recording session started fine, I left it running and when I came back an hour later the unit had only recorded 8 minutes. I saved that 8 minute file to the hard drive and rewound the tape to where it had stopped recording.

 

Now the unit doesn't recognize the video. It just shows "No video signal" on the screen. I can hear the audio playing, and see the video though the viewer on the camera, but unit won't record video. I rebooted my wondows Vista desktop and tried again, same result, except now after closong the program it won't open. So I rebooted again and now the program will open, but still no video. Tried different tape, still no video, tried the tape that had already worked, still no video. Took apart and reassembled all the connections, I am using RCA for both video and audio, my only choice.

 

Nothing, I am very frustrated.

I also have the problem of "No Video Signal". Only I have not been able to record anything yet. I tried the Video Capture USB fix and that didn't work. I got a message that said the update didn't apply to this computer. I have had this software for almost 2 weeks and it hasn't worked yet! I am very frustrated!!

Tell us how you have got your VCR hooked up to the USB device....be specific.

 

Is the USB 2861 device showing in your Device Manager?

The USB 2861 device shows in my device manager as an audio device.

 

I am using RCA cables to hook up to my VCR. I am using a TV/VCR combo. I connect the yellow video cable to the yellow video port on the VCR and I connect the white audio cable. I don't have a red port for audio because I don't have stereo sound. Any advice would be helpful. I am really frustrated with this software by now. I had no idea it would be this hard just to get started. Thanks for the help.

You do have the yellow video cable in the Video OUT jack on the VCR.

There is only one yellow jack so that is the one it is plugged into. It doesn't say in or out it just says video.

 

You need to prove that there is an actual video signal coming out of that jack. Do you have a small portable TV that you could connect that jack up too or provide us with the name and model of the TV/VCR combo and we can look it up.

 

Or, use another external DVD player as the source (and of course use the same cable that you were using from your TV/DVD combo.

It is a TV/VCR combo. I don't have another VCR to try. Can I try a DVD player? I didn't think that would work.

 

I tried to hook my camcorder up via USB cable and the software doesn't see that either. Is it even possible that it would see my camcorder?

Most TV/VCR combos have only inputs and no outputs so you can't use them for capturing video.

 

Is the camcorder analog or digital?

I am having the same problem. I purchased the software yesterday - installed it and I could hear audio, but I could see no video. I tried it again this morning and it worked - once. After I exported the video to DVD I tried another VCR tape and it would not work again. I didn't change a thing. All the drivers are installed. Thoughts?

How can you have “the same problem” when you posted in another Topic and claimed to have “the same problem” there?

 

The 2 Topics are completely unrelated!!!
