No Video Signal

Question

I'm sharing a similar situation. I get audio consistently; however, the video will come through for the first few seconds, and then quits.

 

All of the playback equipment is brand new: the ROXIO was just purchased, the VCR is a Philips VHS/DVD combo, which I've hooked into our regular TV for troubleshooting (it works fine).

 

My device manager displays the same as your example. Rebooted twice so far; once as instructed and the second just for good luck.

 

Some interference noted, so I've been moving the equipment and cables slightly to try and clear that up. I've managed to get the sound perfectly clear, however, the video still quits. AND, what's more interesting, is that the video will consistently start up for a second each time that I stop and start the VHS source, but then immediately stops.

 

Have you addressed the issue with someone else, or in another forum? If so, please point me in that direction.

Thanks!

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

Thanks!

I've noticed that the tapes created with the extended long play option are the ones causing the most problem. Tapes recorded in a different mode (e.g. Standard Play) seem to be OK.

 

Using "long play" will create all sorts of audio/video/sync problems. I would recommend you select the option giving the least compression. Remember , a 4.7GB DVD can oly hold 60 minutes of video at best quality. If you try to squeeze longer videos on the DVD the compression is higher and you get lower quality.

 

Also don't use capturing direct to DVD, much better to first capture to your hard drive.

Thanks! There's not much that I can do with historical VHS stuff that was recorded in such a fashion, but at least now I know why the video signal just drops out like it does.

 

Thanks for your time.
