What's the age and condition of the cables being used to hook everything up?

In the case of flickering video, swapping out cables can fix the issue.

Are you powering the unit with FireWire or the (optional) external power adapter?

If you can't try a different FireWire cable and/or (powered) port, you might have to get in touch with UK support - sounds like something might be faulty.

It could also be fuzzies in the overscan area. A short sample showing the symptoms would be useful in troubleshooting this,

Default Samples

Yes it looks fuzzy but im quite new to this product and i really need to put some videos on to dvd for a client. Here are samples of screens shots i took from the out put recording.

It was recorded from a sharp 6 head vcr
the tape itself is in excellent quality when played in a normal VCR there are no fuzziness or flickering there.

I recorded it via a firewire which is connected to my computer. I cnnected via the 3 RCA wires from the canpous advc 55 to the vcr , with a switchable scart, which isn't the problem because i have two and i tested them both and the flickering is happening.

Samples
ITS a Indian classical Dance performance.

Here is what it should look like this is normal:
