No Video Signal Detected

Micanopy Mike


"No Video Signal Found" on Preview Screen of VHS2DVD program.

Video dongle does warm up when plugged in.


2 Month old HP Pavilion desktop Model p7-1054, Win-7 Professional

64-bit, 6 GB Ram, 3.1 GHz quad-core processor, 1TB hard-drive,

USB-2 connectors. No aftermarket video card. No web-cam.


Installed and re-installed VHS2DVD software from CD and installed

and reinstalled drivers. VHS2DVD box says Win-7 compatible.

Checked for updates. Re-installed software in "Repair" mode.


Control Panel: Sound, video & game controllers:

USB 2861 Device.... yes

Roxio Video Capture USB....yes


Video Source: Composite Baseband NTSC video from surveillance

camera plugged into yellow composite video connector on dongle.

Video from camera looks OK plugged into composite monitor. Video

is present & quality confirmed by oscilloscope check on the end

of the cable from the camera.


Have read the same complaint from a dozen or more others posting

on the VHS2DVD forum. Why do so many folks have problems getting

this software & dongle to function properly?


Suggestions welcome! Perhaps Roxio could set up a remote desktop

service to assist hapless VHS2DVD users get their software and

dongle working...?

Several different video sources were tried:

Two different surveillance cameras and a reference video color-bar generator used in video studios to calibrate video recording devices. None of these were recognized by the VHS to DVD device. All of these video sources WERE accepted and RECORDED OK by a competing video recorder product made by Honestech for recording video onto DVD's. I had purchased the Honestech device first but later the factory informed me that their device could not be used to generate streaming surveillance video over the Internet. Accordingly, I tried out the Roxio VHS to DVD device but cannot get it to work.


Thanks for your input!

Try what it was MADE to WORK with:


VHS Player

DVD Player

BD Player



Just repeating the same steps is testing nothing!


Most likely there is something not quite “Standard” with your signal you’re your “Surveillance Cameras”…


You must use something else to confirm the software is working!


Also like to confirm what Version or Build number of V2D software you have???
