    when you select the NX S input, be sure that you select the correct input setting, in the case of NTSC, choose Canopus HQ SD D1 NTSC 4:3 (not DV)

    set your project to Canopus D1 NTSC rather than DV, it will give you better quality when capturing via analogue

    make sure the S-Video cable is ok

    make sure you have chosen the correct S-Video input, front or rear are an option with NX if you have the optional bay

    I have tested using a PAL DVD that I created - trying to capture that DVD via S-Video port. It is not working. What else could be the problem?

    I tried the NHX-E1-S ... does S stands for S-Video here? Can't find the doc that describes it.

    As SR says it is probably copy protection - make a Test DVD in NTSC yourself and try that.
    Do you have a TBC - some will eliminate "problems"

    Model - Philips DVD727K

    Maybe you are right in one sense - playback at PAL60. If that is true, what about the info that shows up on my broadcast monitor?

    For a PAL DVD - it gives me 576/50p

    For a NTSC DVD - it gives me 480/60p

    There are dvd players that can provide true NTSC and PAL output.

    But the problems lies in the dvd protection in this case.

    I don't know of a dvd player that can play proper ntsc and pal signals.
    Not to say there aren't, but most PAL dvd players play out at PAL60, which is not recordable.
    Which dvd player model is it, out of interest.

    Yes - this DVD player can output both NTSC and DVD signals. I connect the DVD component output to my broadcast monitor - when I play PAL video, it shows as 720/50i on the info display. When I play this NTSC video, it tells me 480/60i.

    I tried DiscCapture - but this DVD is a commercial DVD that has CSS encryption on it. Don't get me wrong - I am not doing illegal stuff here. The organisation that I am doing work for has obtained legal permission for me to extract portions of the video for their own educational purpose.

    Right now - I have decrypted the DVD and is using ProCoder 3 to convert the VOB into Canopus DV (AVI).

    But I am still wondering why Capture won't work.

    Is the dvd player a proper ntsc dvd player?
    As I believe in Singapore you use PAL like we do in the UK, your PAL equipment can probably output a PAL60 signal so you can watch the dvd, but this signal is not recordable by Edius, or any other app by capturing as you are trying.
    As Pjssss has said, put the disc in your dvd player in the pc and use disc capture.

    Capture from SVideo input on NX card

    This will be the first time I am attempting a capture of a NTSC DVD from a DVD player via S-Video to my NX card.

    I played the DVD - I can see the output on my monitor (via component output). On EDIUS, I tried - NHX-E1-Composite, NHX-E1-S, NHX-E1-DV ... nothing works. The project setting is SD NTSC 720x480 59.94i 4:3.

    I can see the video on the monitor but n
