Question

Yes i have tried multiple tapes that worked on the same VCR minutes prior to hooking it up the computer. i have also used different VCRs and have come up with the same problem. you can hear the tapes but the screen displays 'no video signal'. the Y/W/R cord im using is about 1-2ft long

 

 

I'm having the same problem that he is. I have a Dell Studio with Vista Service Pack 2 installed. I have the connections correctly hooked up, and Roxio's help is nil. Told me 3 times how to hook it up even though I told them that had been done at least 5 times. I am using the S-Video connection, and just read on the net that this is not a good connection for VCR to computer. Why would Roxio say it is preferred? I am really fed up with this program after wasting time and money for 3 days now. I should have believed the reviews on it and not bought it.

Where did you read that S-video is not a good connection? It gives the best quality and is the best connection just like Roxio says.

If you want to protect videos from VHS, V8, or Hi8, and store them in a safe digital format, the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD Software is your ideal choice. Protect your memorable home videos archived in outdated media by digitizing it using the software. This camcorder to DVD software converts VCR or camcorder videos into DVD, SVCD or SCD format. You can add titles, scrolling credits to videos and fix your favorite song or music as its background. The software enables you to trim and cut the video clips, in addition to fixing the parameters like color, contrast and brightness, sharpness and balance. Additionally, your videos can be converted into DVDs with animated menus and fully orchestrated music. This software lets you effortlessly convert your videos into popular formats associated with YouTube, iPod, or PSP. Bundled with the Hi8 to DVD software are the installation DVD, a guide, conversion cable, Roxio video capture USB device, and an external USB cable.

Roxio Easy VHS to DVD Software:

Supports a range of devices including VCRs, DVD players and Camcorders

Convert your home videos into professional-style DVDs with menu-driven interface and music

Roxio Easy VHS to DVD allows you to create digital backups for VHS tapes or analog camcorders in digital DVD format

Edit your video/audio files and add meta data like title, artist and genre information to tracks

Transcode videos to popular media formats for devices including iPod, iPhone and Sony PSP

 

The above is the description advertising this program. Where are they? I have one edit feature and that is to 'clip'. Also, my screens do not look like the ones in their advertising video, hence...I have no editing screens.

 

It took me 4 days to solve the problem on my own about even being able to see my video, and now...I can't edit it like it was advertised? I am really feeling ripped off in more ways than one. On top of the expense of the program, I have had to shell out $33 more dollars on top of it. Anybody know anything about the editing, and why there are no help files with the program?

Where did you read that S-video is not a good connection? It gives the best quality and is the best connection just like Roxio says.

I don't remember where I found it. I did a search and information about the S-video connection came up. It stated that you could not use this connection from your VCR to your computer without problems. I traded in my cables with that connection, got one with the Composite video connection, and wa la! I now can see my videos. So, I have to figure the information on the net was right, and Roxio saying it was preferred to use the S-video connection is wrong.

No you are wrong and so is your information source. S-video will give the best quality and is the preferred method. Anybod y who claims otherwise does not know what they are talking about. You seem to have other problems with your system if you can;t get it to work with S-video.

 

If the composite cables work then thatis what you should use.

You still have not told us what version you have.

 

Go here http://forums.suppor...sion-do-i-have/

 

Once we know that, we can probably tell you why your S-Video does not work.

 

I also have used S-video many times and it works just fine. Please get back with the info.

 

edit

Also make and model # of you VCR.

It says 201B23A ENU and 201B23a VHS.

 

If you can tell me why the S-video cable didn't work, you will be the first! I tried for 4 days with the tech help from Roxio, and they could tell me nothing except to keep using the S-video connection. I even asked them about what I had read on the net. I finally just did the switch on my own, and it worked. Do you know why all the features are not showing in my program that was advertised for it? I'm really about ready to get my money back on this program and go with another brand.

From your post #1 above, it is obvious your install is corrupt. How about answering the rest of sknis questions regarding your computer and operating system?

Sorry, didn't see that. I have a Dell Studio running Vista with Service Pack 2. All of the specs of my computer have been verified by Roxio to be capable of running the program. All my drivers have been updated. I never got far enough into the program until this afternoon to discover the features advertised when I bought it were not there. I was too busy/tied up just trying to get it to show the video picture!

LOL...don't feel bad. After 4 days of this, I don't know if I'm coming or going. I have a Magnavox DVD/CD Player with Video Cassette Recorder. Model MWD2205.

 

In this model the S-Video output is ONLY used when in DVD mode. The VCR output is only available on the RCA jacks or coaxial connector (page 7 of the user manual)

This is why you are not getting any video into your Roxio USB unit.

I didn't read my manuel, just went to the net with it. Plus I'm not concerned now since I am getting the video. But I am returning the program as there are no editing features in it. Even the clipping thing is not working, or I don't know how to make it work. There is no 'save' so I have to export it every time and it makes another new file. Very difficult program as far as I'm concerned. They need to change the name of it. I have ordered a new program from Honestech that has nothing but good reviews. Roxio's had a lot of bad reviews, but I had never had problems with any of their programs before, so ignored them. I should have paid attention.
