Audio Fine, Blue Screen, Data Getting Through

Question

I'm having a problem getting video to show in preview window when connected to VCR. Audio is Fine. Data Screen shows up (counter, date, time from VCR) but no actual image from the recorded tape. Just a blue screen behind the counter. So information is going through the yellow RCA wire, just not the video.

 

I'm using Easy VHS to DVD for Mac.

Mac is intel, quad core

I'm able to record 8mm tapes from my old camcorder without a problem.

VCR plays tapes fine to TV.

 

Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!!!

The only thing I can think of is that the app is sensing that the videotape has macrovision. If this is a commercial videotape then it probably is macrovision protected. If this is a home-recorded tape then try adjusting the VCR's tracking control.

These are recordable video cassettes with old wedding videos on them. I've tried the tracking but will play around with it some more. Thanks for trying.

If you can, try feeding the VCR output into your Camcorder and then to the Roxio unit.
