Discoloration Issue While Transferring Files

Question

When I am converting my video to a digital signal from my camera, the top quarter of the image on the Roxio monitor window is discolored. When I burn a DVD from that file, the top of the image is also is discolored. However, at the same time I'm transferring the file to a digital signal, the color on my camera monitor is fine. If I show the video on a TV screen from my camera, the color quality is also OK. Any thoughts?

Since my camera has only one video out and one audio out, I'm connecting the camera's yellow video out to the yellow plug on the Roxio video capture USB and the camera's white audio out to the white part of the plug on the Roxio video capture USB. (I left the red terminal open on the video capture USB.) The camera was recording at just standard play speed (SP) when the videos were taken.

We sometimes ask for a sample of the video that a poster is having trouble with. Could you post a 2 or 3 second section of the video where the color banding is easy to see. We can perhaps see what is happening. Please post a couple of secondsof the video on something like UpForDown or another files sharing site. It should be of the original captured video before and processing except for capture and trimming.

 

Other people have had this problem but I have not seen a good solution. Sometimes it is associated with the color setting on your video card; sometimes other. You can Goole for the error and you find lots of hits but nothing definitive.

 

Edit, I just wanted to mention that I have captured videos as old as 35 years ago and as recent as about 8 years ago and have never seen the banding. I have a current analog camocrder and don't see it there either. I'm not saying that you are not seeing it; just that there may be a setting or adjustment that would help things.
