Video transfer from VCR to PC

  nick35 10:55 02 May 04


I want to be able to transfer from a VCR direct to my PC. I have connected from the SCART on the VCR (it has no s video) to my Pinnacle DC10 PCI card. The sound is fine but the picture is in black & white. The SCART I have used has a S Video connection & audio leads. I have used the S Video connection & the 2 audio connections.

I have also tried using a TV/VCR & also a Digital Camcorder (still with the SCART with the S Video & audio connections) but the picture is still in black & white.

I am using Pinncle video 8 software

Any ideas

I use Dazzle Fusion and Pinnacle Studio 8 to transfer my "Beta" tapes. My Beta video recorder doesn't have scart so I use the phono sockets. All working perfect. Because the sound sync was slightly out I was advised by Pinnacle to update Studio 8 to version 8.12 which I did. No noticeable difference though.

Make sure the capture settings in Pinnacle are for PAL not NTSC.
