  • Capturing with ADVC-55

    I have Edius 9.2 and am using ADVC-55 to enable me to capture from VCR player and DVD player. My VCR and DVD players are connected to the PC through firewire and my driver is a Legacy driver. I have the presets registered.
    I have two problems:
    1. When I stop capturing the clip does not register to the bin.
    2. When capturing I always have picture but sometimes I have sound and at other times no sound.
    Hope someone can help.

    does the firewire card have a Texas Instruments or VIA chip?

    any other chip will fail

    update to EDIUS 9.31 and provide screenshot of your device preset

    also provide screenshot of system settings/application/capture

      Firewire Card

      Thanks Anton,
      My firewire card does not have a TI chip. My card details are:
      IEEE 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (legacy).
      So should I buy a card with TI chip? Re 400 or 800 my ADVC-55 is six pin only. I think 800 requires 9 pin.

        Firewire Card, Device Pretet and pture CaSettin

        Hi Anton,
        Atached; screenshots of Device Preset Settings and Capture Settings.

        I don't think my firewire card has a Texas Instrument chip.

        In Device Manager it is labelled as '1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (Legacy)

          Texas Instrument

          Sorry Anton for a second reply to you.
          I have looked at the box which contained my firewire card and it does not have a TI chip.
          I had already updated Edius to 9.31

            Then you shouldn't need the ADVC-55 if the VCR and DVD player have IEEE1394 output.

            If the DVD and VCR are connected to to the ADVC55 and it to the PC via IEEE1394:
            - Analog sources like VCRs often need a TBC to provide reliable capture.
            - The ADVC generally respects copy protection
            - Although IEEE1384 in theory allows multiple devices on the same chain, it probably should be dedicated to the capture only.
            - The profile in EDIUS must exactly match the source.
