Video Capture Ends On Video Signal Gap

Question

Hello Everyone!

 

Does anyone know-

Is there any way for the capture software (Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus) to keep capturing the feed after it "detects" a break in the video signal?

I have a lot of old VHS tapes and if there's more than a 2-3 second gap on the tape, the software stops the capture and the VCR plays on...

 

Even setting the "timed" recording option will stop the capture after a signal break...

 

Thanks!

Hi - I have had this isuue with other video capturing dongles & associated software in the past as well. I spent many wasted hours contacting the various support departments with no result. I was hoping Roxio latest version would overcome this issue - I don't own it yet but will purchase it if it doesn't "auto detect gaps" but just keeps recording as requested.

 

Can any of the Gurus clarify??

There is nothing to clarify. It happens for some and not for others. Since we all have the same program the only variable would be the VHS device from which we capture. Of course the program can't "compensate" for every device.

 

Personally I don't find it a big problem at all. I don't want the program to capture the video into one big file since I would break it down into clips anyway. This way the splitting is done for me and each clip becomes a separate file. It may be a bit of a pain to babysit the capture but that is a lot easier then scanning through a huge video file and try to determine where "scenes changes" occur.
