My aim is to transfer some vcr tape recordings to pc files. After I bought a Dazzle dvc90 I realised (foolish me, not reading the specs before buying !) that it needed a high speed usb2.0 connection to the pc. I only have usb1.1 ports at present. I am willing to buy a usb2.0 port pci card, but before I do that (and waste more money) I will appreciate advice on the following 2 points :-
(1) At present, when I connect up the Dazzle and run the Pinnacle studio 9 soft, I get a black preview screen. If I press capture, the file is created but it is black. The question is - is there any way of knowing if the system at all works (even badly) with the usb1.1 connection ? When I connect the vcr output to the Dazzle there is a flicker, that is all !
(2) My second question is - does the vcr RF output need somehow to be tuned in by the Dazzle just as the tv needs to be tuned to the vcr freq? Or any vcr RF output will be recognized by the capture device ?
Thanks for reading. Regards, pcd1.
