Default ADVC-55 PAL/NTSC Problem

I have recently purchased an ADVC-55 to capture some PAL tapes on to the computer. I have corretly set all the switches on the ADVC for PAL capture (switch 1 on and all others off) but the computer insists on capturing in NTSC. I can find no way in any program to switch to PAL. It seems as if the type of output is determined by the setting on the device.
I have tried VirtualDub, MediaConcept MPEG Encoder (Demo), WinDV and the Windows image capturer (in "My Computer"). None of them allow me to switch to PAL and I obviously get a garbled image. However, some times after reconnecting several times I system detects the input as PAL and everything works normally, but as soon as I disconnect and reconnect (making no changes in between) everything fails again. It's like the switch on the ADVC isn't working properly...
I have checked the source (an analog camcorder) witch I connect through an RCA Cable to the ADVC. It works fine on the TV (all PAL) with the same cables.
Is there anything that could be causing this behavior apart from a hardware fault in the ADVC? I have had these troubles on the two computers I have tried it on.
I appreciate any help...
