  • ADVC300 - video signal from ADVC300 is turned in black / white.

    Hi, I just bought a ADVC300 because I wanted audio lock and time control, features that my Datavideo DAC-100 did not had.

    I do however one big problem: the video signal from the ADVC300 is black & white, tested the same setup with the datavideo DAC-100 and I get color.

    Here is my setup:
    Video8 camera connected to the audio/video in, color video
    ADVC300 connected to a Mac with firewire

    Dipswitch settings:
    SW1
    1: OFF
    2: OFF
    3: OFF
    4: OFF
    5: ON
    6: ON
    7: OFF
    8: ON

    SW2
    1: OFF
    2: OFF
    3: OFF
    4: OFF
    5: OFF
    6: OFF
    7: OFF
    8: ON

    Any ideas how to get it working properly? Many thanks for your advice / help.

    Try changing the PAL/NTSC dipswitch...

      Is your Video8 camera PAL or NTSC? The ADVC300 won't convert from NTSC to PAL, you have to set SW1-6 (NTSC/PAL) to be the same as the analog source.

      Also, as the manual states (yeah, I know, it's not clear, but it is there under the description of SW1 No. 6), you need to set SW1-5 to OFF when you have selected PAL (SW1-6 ON), otherwise you are telling the ADVC300 that you have SECAM source.

      Oh, and make sure you turn the power off before changing DIP switches.

      Ken.
