Issues with Legacy VC500-USB
 
I have a Legacy VC500 from Diamondmm.com.

Searching on the internet, I learned that my device shares the same driver has the HDTV110 device.

Quote:

A previous version from 2008 with device ID 07de:2820 apparently used a TM5600 ADC. This version shared drivers with a hybrid ATSC USB tuner called HDTV110 with device ID 07de:0001 (which was outwardly identical to Diamond's TVW750U except for the different model number silkscreened on, but completely different internally)(https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/OTG102).
I tried the current driver from http://www.diamondmm.com/diamond-vc5...it-stream.html and also the one from here http://www.diamondmm.com/hdtv110-dia...tuner-usb.html

I tried on WinXP 32bits, Win 7 x64 and Win 10 x64. On some of those OSes the drivers couldn't be installed, when I finally got it to install I only had the VC500 video listed on the device manager and it doesn't seems to work as when opening the capture device from VLC only showed a black screen.

Does anyone any experienced that kind of issue before?

Are you trying to use VLC player for capture? Why? My VC500 works in Win 7 with VirtualDub (no one could pay me to use Windows 10). I'd say offhand that VLC can't see the device, which I guess you now by now. I just thought it was curious that VLC could be used that way. The fact that two devices use the same chip wouldn't necessarily mean that they are implemented in the same way.

I wasn't trying to use VLC to capture. I was using VLC simply to see if I was getting an output as I was unable to capture using VirtualDub.

Anyway, I found my issue. It turned out that I was not able to configure my VC500 with the provided software (ez grabber). It was staying configure with component input. I had to use DScaler http://deinterlace.sourceforge.net/ to switch the input to S-Video and I am now able to capture using VirtualDub.

Do you know if there is any other alternative to DScaler to switch the card input?

I was in a hurry so I also placed an order for a black magic intensity pro 4k... which I might return as it got some pretty bad reviews.

EZGrabber is the software that allows you to configure the VC500's capture drivers. You don't use EZGrabber to capture, you set it for your capture software. The VC500 has to be connected to use it. What you don't need to install is ShowBiz and the other junk software.

Is there something that has to be configured using EZGrabber that can't be configured using VDub? If so, what is it?

I was unable to switch the input from RCA to s-video using vdub.

metaleonid 02-09-2017 02:59 PM

You mean from composite?

mtetreault 02-09-2017 03:03 PM

Yes exactly, I meant composite.

metaleonid 02-09-2017 11:09 PM

Have you resolved?

mtetreault 02-10-2017 03:06 AM

I used a software called dscaler to change the input to svideo and then I was able to use vdub

Diamondmm took the "VER 1 (2010-05-19 driver)" driver (according to https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/OTG102#Notes_About_the_Windows_Drivers) off their site.

Do you happen to have a copy of it ?

The internet archive seems to have the driver available still. Didn't see any working links to the full install, but at least the driver package seems to have been cached. I would assume it would be the Vista 64-bit one you would want (the VC500XT is the newer revision.).

Also attached it just in case.

I have no idea whether it works on newer OSes or not.

I found this, wondering if I could get the full install.
Anywho, I'll try this tomorrow at work on an old windows pc.
