First time poster and i am having some trouble. Please bare with me if some of my terminology is incorrect. I'm trying to convert some old VHS tapes to digital via a PCI capture card.
I've bought a Avermedia CE310B
PCI card, brand new device, just arrived today installed into a brand new PC.
When i try play back video from the VHS player to the PC i get no audio and no sound.
My VHS player is a Sony SLV-SE7401 & its inputs and outputs are as follows:
- Output: Scart Line 1 (black color labelled euro AV)
- Output: Scart Line 2 (blue color)
- Output: Audio out (L+R red+white)
- Output: TV Out (RF)
- Input: Antenna Input
I've tried using a Male to Male RCA cable into a RCA to Scart adapter. The scart plugged into the VHS and the RCA into the capture card. I've changed around the resolution and swapped around from Composite to S-Video and back again (just to cycle the input) and i get no video and no audio output. I've tried both scart outputs on the VHS. The screen output either remains blue or black (depending on what resolution i set the capture to).
I tried another cable, gold plated JVC dedicated Scart to RCA and the same result as above.
When i plug in the RCA cables audio (white and red) into the VCR's "Audio Out" port i can hear sound through my PC's speakers.
I then tried an old TV Out (RF) to RCA cable (i think that is what it is, i used to use it on my old Super Nintendo) and i still can't get any audio or video out.
I'm not using any copy protected tapes, they are old family VHS tapes from 20-30 years ago. I know the VHS player works because it outputs over scart to a TV just fine and plays the tapes perfectly with audio and video.
Do i need to have it plugged into a TV to get an output to a PC as well or what am i doing wrong here?
Any help would be very greatly appreciated.
