Here's my dilemma. I have a Hauppauge HVR-950Q. I'm trying to capture videos off my VCR, so i can finally get rid of these old VHS tapes.
The WinTV capture software sucks because the quality for what i need is too low and i can't adjust it.
I've had very little luck with VirtualDub, the video quality is crap (wavy lines on the edges) and i get tons of dropped frames.
I can't seem to get Ulead MovieFactory 6 OR Ulead Videostudio 11 to use the capture device. Both keep throwing a 'cannot connect to device' error.
I've updated to the latest drivers from Hauppauge and still the same issues. I've also use the hcwclean tool and re-installed the drivers, both to no avail....
I've been searching but haven't found an answer to the errors or any other capture software that may work with this little unit.
I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. I've got a 2.3ghz Turion x2 with 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. Video card is a Radeon X1250. Note this is a notebook, CPU is already maxed and i obviously can't switch out my video card.
I'm wondering if it's a Win7 issue, maybe installing XP in a new partition would work. i dunno. Figure that's my last resort if i can't get things to work in 7....
