I've come across an old VHS tape with home video shot in SECAM, I'm pretty sure it's SECAM L since it's from my uncle who lives in France. To watch it I've acquired a Samsung VCR, which is pretty crap but supports SECAM.
Now, when the VCR is hooked up to my TV and both are switched to SECAM I get the full picture in color. Unfortunately when I hook it up to the Hauppauge HD PVR to capture it with Total Media Extreme I first get nothing until I switch the VCR to PAL, then I get a B&W picture.
Total Media Extreme has a video standard selector in Device Settings but that doesn't work - it changes nothing when I select SECAM L (or any other format) and hit "Apply", and when I close the settings window and reopen it it resets back to PAL B.
I'm pretty sure the HD PVR supports SECAM, so I think it's a software issue.
Is there any way to force Total Media Extreme to SECAM, or should I use a different piece of software OR am I entirely wrong and the Hauppauge doesn't support SECAM?
