V-Stream Expert DVD Maker ...Trouble



I just purchased and installed a KWorld / V-Stream DVD Maker. I ran the included Power Producer 2 Gold to capture some VHS video via the component video/audio input. It captures the video and audio, but the picture quality is poor. There are hundreds of black specks running vertically in bands as if there was some RF interference. When the video is burned to DVD the specks are magnified plus (+) signs. I have switched cables, tapes, players all no help. I have tried reinstalling both the card and drivers, also no help. There is no interference either. Anybody have any ideas? Bad card? Bad convert cable?
