This is my first post to a Bulletin Board -- I'm deperate. Like others I am having problems with lip-synch on captured analogue video using the Pinnacle included PCI video card and my Dell computer (3.0 GHz 160 GIG SATA HD 1GIG RAM). Capture from SVHS deck is fine with 0 dropped frames but long movies (CASABLANCA recorded from TV or from a new VHS tape) eventually get out of lip-synch. Since main reason for original purchase was transfer of old VHS home movies to DVD I am at a loss. Options I am considering include purchase of ADS A/V w/Premiere bundle that converts analogue to firewire (but I already own Premiere) since they claim a "Lip-Sycnh" lock in their advertisement; giving up on Pinnacle and trying to use my Sony Digital 8 camcorder as some kind of Xfer medium to Digital and thence via firewire to the computer; or ???
Please help if you have found a solution. I have tried all the Pinnacle suggestions such as killing all other apps etc. but believe this to be a more generic problem with either the hardware card or the Pinnacle software. The problem occurs even before editing when simply viewing the captured video (captured at highest quality).
BTW ... what is a "Poll"? and what are the "Options"? -- sorry, I'm a NEWBY
