Question

I have installed easy vhs to dvd on a dell laptop latitude E5410 spec Intel core i5 CPU M520 @2.40Ghz 3.42GB Ram. Operating system is Window XP sp3. When I connect the video player to the laptop using the roxio video capture usb and play the video player, the roxio easy vhs to dvd software comes up with an error message "No Video signal". I have connected the cable correctly as per user guide. Also I can only hear the sound.

Help

Since you have XP, try a test capture using Windows Movie Maker ~ XP was the last OS made where WMM could be used for USB capture.

 

Also read the pinned post up top by cdanteek, compare the pictures to your system to make sure the drivers are correctly installed.

 

I tested it with windows XP movie maker and it is still the same problem. No video signal except sound.

Most likely you plugged in the device before you installed the software… In which case XP will install drivers for the device, only problem is, they don’t work!

 

Plug in the device with the Device Manager open (Win-Pause-Hardware tab, Device Manager).

 

Delete any and all entries with ‘USB 2861’ in them:

Remove the device and reboot. Follow the Prep Steps, Here, then reinstall the software.

 

Reboot and insert the USB Device. Your Device Manager should now show these entries:

I have checked my settings and they are the same as yours. It is works with windows movie Maker, both audio and video. However the

video signal is not colour but black and white.

 

I do not understand why it does not work with the roxio easy VHS to DVD. This software is not easy to install and use.

 

Roxio should remove the word EASY

 

Anymore help

Is a Scart connector being used in you connections?.

Guys, Still does not work. Thanks for your help. I would send the kit back to the shop. Too difficult to install

 

If it works from your DVD player, then fails using the VCR, how can it be a Roxio"install" problem.

 

There are many, many different Scart adapters out there.

I had a similar experience in that the Roxio interface does not recognize a B/W composite signal. My setup does work with a Color composite signal given a few seconds to sync up. Is the Roxio UB315-E rev3 compatible with a B/W composite signal ?

 

A nice to have feature would be a method within the interface to select the video source. It seems that if there is a camera attached and enabled to the system, it prefers to use it over the Roxio source.

Support confirmed in a separate email that this device is not compatible with a black and white composite video source. In my case I can work around this limitation but would have been nice to know in advance.

fliptak: Your information, even though it is from Support, is only partly correct… :glare:

 

If you have an S-Video input, Black & White will become usable. :o

You mentioned ‘composite’ but left out S-Video, which does work. Also you should know that jazi90 is located in the UK and may or may not have S-Video depending on his SCART adapter…

I have captured Black and White video through a composite connector with all three versions of Easy VHS to DVD.

 

My Sony VCR doesn't have a S-Video connector. I suppose now I will have to find one that does and check this out. :unsure:

 

I recognize those Horsa Gliders ~ HERE :lol:

 

I am betting the B/W issue is probably related to the specific Device… You got yours about the same time I got mine, Feb 2009, right?

 

Some are more sensitive to signal level than others.

I am still unable to demonstrate to myself a working example of using a black and white composite video signal.

I can get a black/white image displayed as long as the carrier contains the color burst information...

 

I have attached 2 digital scope images of some test signals, 1 for b/w and one for color.

The test setup is a Toshiba VHS system using a black/white composite video camera on the AV1 input and the Roxio is connected to

the AV out signal. The scope images are of the signal as it leaves the VHS player ( tapped the wire between the VHS and the Roxio )

 

The color signal ( a blue screen generated by the VHS player ) is displayed by the Roxio interface.

The color signal is ~ 350mv p-p

 

The black/white signal will show for ~ 1.5 seconds after plugging the signal in and then switches to the "No Video Signal".

The black/white signal is actually a larger signal ~ 675mv p-p, perhaps since it is actually a scene in my computer room.

 

 

Can you explain this ?

If you can work around it what is the problem?

 

Why all the technical business that most here don't understand?

 

Try user ogdens suggestion he gives to folks with no signal problems.

 

"Some users have had success by connecting the VCR to a DVD player then into the Roxio USB device".

Sorry, I did not know this was not a technical forum. I guess it is only for simple issues.

 

My work around involves connecting through a security DVR that automatically adds color time stamps to the video.

I will not always have that luxury. I was hoping to be able to use the Roxio device to capture a signal from a b/w pipe inspection camera.

 

Doesn't look like it will work for my application, just need a color camera now...
