  • Solved one problem of HDV capture.

    I hope my discovery will help others in this forum.
    I am using 4.61 and capturing from a Sony Z1.
    In my PC I have installed a firewire card and a Storm 2 card.

    Every time I captured HDV the footage had signs of drop-out and ran slightly faster than normal. I gave up trying to use HDV.
    After reading a recent post
    http://ediusforum.grassvalley.com/fo...ead.php?t=5215
    I re-visited my problem. I ensured all the settings listed in the thread were correct but still it did not resolve the problem.
    After much trial and error I discovered that disabling the Storm card in Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager cured it.
    It seems you cannot have the firewire card and the Storm card both enabled together.
    I can now capture HDV. Hurrah!

    Storm has its own Firewire port - if I remembered my old Storm - before I traded in for the NX. IF so, why bother to use another Firewire card then?

      The FireWire port on the DVStorm board is not OHCI compliant, and thus, cannot ingest HDV streams.

        Ah - I forgot that the original author wanted to capture HDV ... and Storm is a SD only system. Yes ... thanks.

          One other thing you could do is create a second Hardware Profile in Device Manager that does not include the drivers for the Storm.

          You could then select the non-Storm Hardware Profile at boot time if you know you will be doing HDV captures. This would keep you from having to manually disable and re-enable the device.

            If you go into device manager and DISABLE the STORM You can capture HDV from the other firewire port

            Then - I use to enable storm in devise mangaer -RE BOOT and then start a SD 16:9 project import my HDV footage - EDIT with realtime SD OUTPUT VIA STORM s-video to sd monitor then when it came to make sd dvd Just do it and for Bluray change project settings to HDV 1440 X 1080I and RE jig any pixel based effects - Like PIP and 3D PIP

            Cor what a FAF - I bought an NX in the end..........................;-)
