    Strange... the only thing I can think of is that the one of the adjustments on the ADVC1394 analog input is making the video level too high ("hot").

      I think with the adjustment on ADVC is OK,i tryed to capture some video from analogue video camera and DVD players analogue output and the picture was OK,there was no flickering !!
      I think the VCR gives " too much color " comparing to other videos..sometimes the faces look soo red,like after sunburn..i cant change anything on VCR,color or brightness..
      I will try with DVD+VCR combo player these day,will see if it will be different..

        This is something really strange: now i changed to Scart-Svideo adapter..and the colors are really bad ! The VHS tapes are black and white on the computer or sometimes there's a color,but its really bad ! its interresting when im in the VCR settings menu,the background colors are ok,but from VHS tapes its really bad or just Black&White.. this is really strange,i have no clue why is this ! do you have any idea ??

          Unfortunately I don't know much about SCART since we don't use it in the US... However, some other users have remarked that...
          1. Not all devices output Y/C separated (S-Video), even if the SCART adapter may have an S-Video connector.
          2. Better SCART adapters are Input/Output switchable. I don't know how this changes the internal connections, but apparently it can make a difference.

            Finally i solved the color flickering ! i have found where is the problem..
            In the capture card's control software,i have to set the sharpness to 1 point(because on any other point its making some interference in the video which i can't see on computer,but when im burning the video to dvd i can see it on TV ) . I found this out accidentaly..:) so now i can play my dvd's on any tv and dvd player..finally !!

              There is another issue with RGB SCART that can cause this. Almost all European TVs will happily play NTSC (525/60) standard signals via RGB SCART, but many will display them only in black and white (or sometimes with weird colours) via other connections. If you accidentally author an "NTSC" DVD (525/60) instead of a "PAL" one (625/50), you'll see this problem.

              Cheers,
              David.
