I have just about tried everything possible after reading all through the forums for ideas, I was having a discoloration issue on the preview on vhs s on my first computer,,colors would turn green mostly on the faces and be the same on a burned disc,,That computer is running windows 8,,So any ideas on how to fix that would be great,,My second computer is windows xp,,I meet all the requirements,,The problem is no audio or video,,I have repaired,,uninstalled,,re installed after dropping the firewall and same thing every time i hook it up,,no picture,,no sound,,lol,,Any idea s would be greatly appreciated..

I should also have said the sound and capture is recognized in my devices,,and says working properly on the no picture or sound computer,, and on the green faces issue It would play a dvd with no color issues and some vhs tapes would have less green then others and I took a short clip from computer to try advanced settings,,and the improve colour option did not get rid of the green or any option it comes with..

Thanks for the reply,, For the windows 8 computer / green, I had it hooked up with the 3 rca's,,I was going from a dvd vcr combo unit at first,,and then I tried a vhs player, Hitachi and it seemed to have less green discoloration,,so I am using the straight Vhs player for the second computer as well,,I do have EVD 3 plus pro,,Only about a month old,,and I know the cords are hooked up right and working because the first computer had everything working,,just the color changing going on,,Thanks for your time Jim..

I am not going to try to troubleshoot 2 pc's at the same time, Pick ONE! :lol:

 

General... no program should crash! If it does, it is no longer installed correctly (corrupted)...

 

Combo unit often have to be Set within the unit menu for the output you can use.

 

IF you are using Commercial Tapes, things like Macro Vision will cause color shifts but they are usually an In & Out effect.

Lol,,That sounds fair,, I will pick the windows 8 desktop with the color issue,,as it is much further ahead then the xp desktop,,I had the combo unit running with the 3 rca's,, I tried multiple tapes like jungle to jungle (disney) A older movie with not as much color and it seemed to have very few discolorations,, These were all store bought vhs's,, Is there a way to tell if it's macro vision? By the company maybe ? This is like even in the credits,, one name on the top would go green for a few seconds,, That sounds about right like it is a in and out effect,, So would a pre recorded vhs / blank tape be a more solid video to go off of,, I think you solved the problem,, I tried a disney cartoon as well and it had less discoloration,,but still more then the old movie i tried,,Also I did switch the source on the vcr to dvd,,Watched the dvd and it had a perfect picture,, The dvd would work through a s video cable as well,,Then I try the vcr side with a s video and it just reads a toshiba picture,,which is the make of the vcr/dvd combo..

I had one of those on Laser Disc :lol:

 

There is some question as to the legality of copying Commercial Tapes... So I don't really want to go into that!

 

But for your home movies, one thing I would double check is that you are using Composite outputs from the VCR (Y/W/R) and not Component (PR, PB & Y) by mistake :o

That works for me about the copyright laws :) My mother is just trying to get all her old vhs's onto dvd's to have everything kind of upgraded,,so i bought her this program to do it and am now trying to fix it and get it working for her,,I will double check that when I get to her house tomorrow Jim,,I appreciate all the help and the quick responses,, 80 % of her video's are commercial so atleast we learned it's not possible to transfer these,,and that the program is working correctly :) Thanks Jim,, Have a great night..

I phoned to get the model # It is a Phillips DVP 3150V,, and as she was finding this # on the box she noticed this actually records vhs to dvd,,lol,,which gives us another option to try :) ,, I guess when you get older you over look all the features,,haha,,but funny for her to find out she already had what she needed,,But she did ask for it,,Thank you guru's for helping and looking into this,,but I'm sure my problem is solved :)
