No Video Signal. Tracking Doesn't Help


novideo

Question

If adjusting tracking doesn't help, what else can I try before just returning product?

--- I have tried 2 different VCR players (both work fine hooked to 2 different TVS)

---- I have tried 3 different tapes - one is an almost new Disney tape

 

The 2 VCRs only have S-Video connection from the DVD, not the VHS.

 

Audio works fines, just "No Video Signal"

 

for ROXIO Easy VHS to DVD3 Plus

If those are commercial VHS tapes then copyright protection may be kinking in.

I can only use the RCA cables from the VCR to the Roxio unit (to the PC). The S-video connection doesn't come from the VCR portion.

(I only mentioned them to show I had considered copying from them, but only the DVD side comes from them.)

I'm trying to copy from a VCR/DVD player to the computer thru the Roxio device to make a DVD copy on the computer.

I know what you are doing, (you have a DVD/VCR Combo). The DVD output is using the S-Video and the VHS/VCR output is using the composite RCA cord.

 

So answer my two questions I asked in post #6.

I haven't been able to copy the device mgr... but there is no USB 2861 device..

there are 2 copies of Roxio Video Capture USB. There is also :

Intel® Display Audio and

Realtek High Definition Audio.

 

Question #1: I am not plugging the S-video into the Roxio or using it at all.

2 entries like this are "normal" for the newer Capture USB Device:

Tony is asking you to TRY a DVD with the S-Video hooked up!

 

What you are doing fails... repeating the very same conditions will produce the same results :huh:

My apologies, I was reading your post completely wrong.

 

Your Device Manager has the right entries.

 

So you are using a composite cable (Yellow-Video, Red/White-Audio) to the Roxio unit. And this same cable when connected to a TV works fine.

 

Have I got it right now?

VHS tape output is "not a good strong" signal, and some users have had problems with them.

 

As a test, you could try using a external DVD player and try it, or use your existing combo DVD/VCR using the S-video output from the DVD section.

 

Some users have success by using a external DVD player as a pass-thru. Take the VHS output and feed into the DVD player IN, then take the output of the DVD into you Roxio unit..

 

There is also the possibility you could have a defective Roxio unit.
