  • ADVC500 Problems with recording VHS tapes

    I bought a Canopus ADVC500 needed. Now I have problems recording VHS tapes. He starts to digitize and then stops the recording.
    But does it work with my old Pinnacle MovieBox DV Firewire?

    My configuration:
    1. Player: Video Recorder is a JVC HR-S7500 (without TBC)
    2. Recording Device: iMac via Firewire Adapter (Thunderbolt)
    2. Recording Software: Final Cut Pro X

    On the ADVC, the DIP switch is switched or I have tested the following:
    1. Adjustment or Attempt: switch 1-4 off, switch 5-6 on, switch 7-8 off

    2. Adjustment or attempt: switch 1,2, 4 off, switch 3 on, switch 5-6 on, switch 7-8 off

    I do not know what to test anymore. Or is the Canopus broken?

    Thank you already for your help.

    Greetings Klaus

      It may be best to attempt analog capture with S-Video and red/white audio inputs, rather than via DV-Firewire.

      This would apply only to home videos. Most copyrighted VHS tapes have Macrovision protection, and most capture hardware and software will not work, producing only gray screens.

        Of course, Firewire works perfectly. I solved my problem by buying an ADVC300.
