    be sure the input signal is connected and live when you set sync

    At no point do I see a green signal or sync present light. It has been red on all inputs. It may suggest a faulty board.

    I'll try reloading the drivers and switching the advc

    if you don't connect external ref, here is one way that it must work

    if this does not work, I eat a broom or you got a faulty SP card

    What I see is A rolling image on the external monitor (SP card) and black on the preview screen in Edius. It will not capture, the waveform does show an image.

    I will try the other suggestions tomorrow as I have a job this pm

    what exactly happens when you try and capture from the component of your DVD player? does the picture roll vertically in the preview monitor? if not, your problem is something else, like maybe the SP card stuck in NTSC mode

    you may want to start the ADVC controller and switch to ADVC mode, then do a test with component connected to the input and a monitor connected to the output, what do you see?

    then switch back to Edius mode

    Hi, I have had no success with any analogue signal on any of the ref settings, I do not usually need to worry as I work 95% of the time with DVCAM and XDCAM HD, I also have a J3 for digibeta input thru an SD card.

    The signal from the truck may have been a problem as the cable run was 160 feet, we didn't have time on the day to problem solve the situation as time was a pressure, we tried composite with no success aswell. I have tried the component from a DVD player aswell now with the same issues.

    I occasionally use my DV deck to do a conversion to DV from S or composite so this issue will not cause too many problems, I will try to get hold of an SPG to try again some time soon

    Very strange. I wonder if any other SP/HDV users can offer any comment, and what the view from Canopus is.

    in my case, use Input Sync while capturing is also ticked

    if I leave sync on free run, the picture in the preview window rolls vertically and the vector scope goes looney

    all my tape decks have broadcast TBC's so the source signal is rock solid

    I also tested with my Sony DXC D35WSP camera live composite and live Y-C to the SP card and it also fails

    it only works when I connect a BB signal to ref in and set sync to "Ref Input Sync", it also works if I set sync to "Input Sync" in dropdown, because all my video signals are stable, the SP card will lock to the incoming video

    so, this may also work for the original poster

    basically, the moral of the story is that ticking "use Input Sync while capturing" is as dead as a doornail

    And I should have added that the "use Input Sync while capturing" box is ticked. Also I am on Edius Broadcast 4.10, since the audio mixer is screwed up with 4.23.

    Hi Anton
    Just checked this again to make sure I wasn't being paranoid. Composite and Y-C definitely no problem. The sync in "Hardware Settings" is left on "OFF (free run)". I certainly agree with you that any other sync setting slows editing performance right down. I doubt whether it's a new revision of the card; I got my SP/HDV about the same time as you, and it was I believe one of the first available in the UK.

    maybe you have a newer card and they fixed something?

    in my case, I can't capture composite, Y-C or component without an external ref input, if I try, the picture rolls continuously

    Hi, have you ever had any success using a standard composite signal as a ref?

    unfortunately, the SP card does not support capture if there is no BB signal applied to the ref in connector and the stetting must be on external ref during capture with a tick in the input sync option just below that, this applies to composite, Y-C and component (if you ask me, this needs some overhaul by the makers)

    once captured, switch back to internal ref, otherwise editing will be a nightmare (if you ask me, this needs some overhaul by the makers)

    Hi Anton, the feed was coming from an OB truck directly from a DA, the BB was the same for all the truck.

    I forgot to mention I also tried to plug a DVD player in via component, same issues. I do not have a BB generator at home though so was trying the dvd player with sync to input.

    I appreciate component can be tricky, but I would have expected the composite to be happy to sync
