So I recently bought a Hauppauge USB Live2. For a few of my VHS, I have noticed that the audio is natively too loud.
I read in the link below that there seems to be a registry hack that could fix this, however I have not been able to find it.
USB capture devices, Pinnacle vs. Hauppauge tests?

Lordsmurf, do you happen to know how to perform this registry hack?

I also read somewhere that registry hacks might need to be re-done every time the Hauppauge is re-inserted into my laptop. I do not seem to find where I read this (it could likely have been for another Hauppauge capture device). Would you happen to know if this is the case for the USB Live 2?

Thanks again.

I don't think it exists for this card. It's specific to cards using empia chips while this one uses a conexant chip afaik. The drivers were lazily written, haven't seen any way to adjust the audio level on the conexant-based usb dongles in windows even though the hardware supports it. (The linux drivers let you adjust audio fine from what I remember, though the settings aren't stored on the dongle itself.) So, you need some external volume control or attenuator to avoid clipping. Alternatively, if you happen to be using a vcr or camcorder with a headphone out, those usually let you adjust the output volume.

I forgot to mention it in my first post, but I am using an Asus laptop with Windows 10.
Well, that is quite unfortunate. At least there is a solution with external volume control as suggested. I might need to try that then.
Before doing so, the VCR I am using is a Panasonic NV-HS950. Would you happen to know if there is a way to adjust the level of volume through RCA-output on the VCR? I have not been able do that, but perhaps I am just missing something. I have a remote control for the VCR.

You can't normally adjust the volume of RCA outputs on vcrs (though some older ones may have internal adjustments). The HS950 has a headphone output you could try though (using a minijack to rca adapter) which does have volume knob on the front.
