Default Capturing with ADVC-55

I am attempting to capture VHS into Edius 9 with ADVC 55. I have registered my VCR player as a preset device but can't capture. Before I explore any further could somebody tell me if Edius 9 should capture with ADVC 55?

if your PC has a firewire connection with VIA or Texas instruments chip, you can capture
make sure capture device settings are correct, please show screenshot of settings

to attach an image, click "go advanced" and select "manage attachments"

you can't capture HD via Generic OHCI

you need to make a Generic HDV preset

also, make sure the camera firewire output is not set to downcovert to SD in the camera setup

does you camera really record 8 channels audio?

VHS is SD, not HD or HDV. The ADVC is an SD output device, via IEEE1394 (firewire), like a MiniDV camcorder. So you will need an SD preset.

Later releases of Window generally need the legacy firewire drver. It is not automatically installed by Win8 or Win10.

yes correct, I assumed he wanted to all of a sudden capture DVC PRO HD

the correct settings for PAL DV for VHS look like this

Default Capturing Problems

Thanks Antonsvideo (preset settings)and dpalomaki (legacy driver) for your help. I can now see video when capturing - but lots of problems.
No audio when capturing - except now and then.
Pressing STOP does not stop the capture and nothing registers in the bin - but on a few occasions it did. Even when I stop playback on my VCR nothing registers in the bin.

Once again thanks
