Well, im basicly new to all this, i just found my dads old JVC GR-DV1 and bought some SONY dv tapes. I have the docking station which allows me to view it on the tele. I also have a Radeon 9600 Series graphics card which i have an tv input slot which i was able to connect the dock to.
The good thing is, the computer recognises that there is an "ATI Radeon Theatre Capture Device" operating. The settings i have no idea what to set them to either.
I pressed play and such on the dock and waited to see the preview screen in "movie maker" it was extremely distored and looked as if there was an earthquake.
(i loaded the video that i caught on youtube. btw i only tested the camera so the footage was like 10seconds long.. thus the shortness)
I attempted to alter settings and cannot capture anything at all only a black screen. The tape plays fine on camera play back and on tv playback. Would this be a connection issue? or software?
If i can be of any more help would details id be happy. Going on a surf trip on monday (btw im australian ) and would hopefully be able to capture some footage and place on computer.
Thanks very much.
