  • cant get advc300 to work - mac - final cut

    I have purchased an ADVC300 to convert video from my video deck, I have connected, and followed all instructions, but I am getting some strange results.
    In picture controller I am getting a black and white preview and no audio, not sure if this is correct?
    In imovie and finalcut, I cannot batch capture, because there is no signal and the device is not recognised.
    Please help, I am deperate, I have a monday deadline.
    Thanks in advance to anyone who tries to help.

    Sounds like your input television standard (NTSC or PAL) doesn't match the ADVC300's setting.

    Check the DIP switches, make appropriate changes and power-cycle the ADVC.

    If you're using a SCART connection, also make sure that it's output-capable and your device is actually sending the proper signal (S-Video or Composite) - not all devices put both S-Video and Composite signals on the SCART connection, which can end up with a connector that's not carrying the right signal.
