Default ADVC 1394 & Windows 7 64bit

Hi. I've been workin with ADVC 1394 on Vista Home Premium 64bit without any problem. Using Pinnacle Studio 10, the capture and editing analog video allways went well. Now i've installed Windows 7 Ultimate Edition 64 bit. First, i couldn't capture anything, just a black screen. after reseating the advc 1394 i finally got signal. But the image wasn't good. It displays the video with a lot of stripes (poor english, can't explain better). Tried in another vcr and i diplayed the video correctly. I don't think a vcr problem, because even when isn't video playing, the stripes are still appearing. The display when it should appear the stop sign from the vcr, i can even read the words there. The Canopus ADVC1394 shows in device manager as AVC Video Player/Recorder.

My pc config:
Motherboard - MSI K9N2 Diamond
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 940
RAM - 8gb (4x2gb OCZ SLI Edition)
Graphics Card - 2x 8800 GT @SLI
HDD - Maxtor 500GB + Samsung 1TB

After many tries and many searches through various forums I finally managed to get the ADVC 1394 working on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit today.

What I did is that I disabled all OHCI 1394 devices in the Device Manager except the one for ADVC1394 which shows as "NEC 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller" in the device manager.

Then I updated the device drivers for the NEC by selecting "Browse my computer for driver software" and then "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" options. This then presents you with all the drivers available and the one to select is "1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (Legacy)".

After updating the drivers shut down and restart the computer and it should start working. I tested it with WinDV and recorded some footage which worked great.

Just make sure that before you update the drivers for the ADVC1394 DISABLE ALL other 1394 OHCI compliant devices in the device manager. One problem is that by doing this you will disable all the other Firewire ports if there are any. You may be able to enable them later on but I haven't tested if the ADVC will continue to work after enabling them.

Oh, and one last thing, before you even try to do any of the above make sure that you have set the jumpers on the ADVC Card itself for PAL/NTSC to Hardware controlled setting rather than software as the software controller utility which comes with the ADVC1394 is not compatible with Windows 7 so should not be installed.

Hope it helps!

That information is also available in this forum, it should probably be made a sticky.
