Hi, I found this wonderful forum in search to find a solution for my VHS recordings.
For many, many years I used Pinnacle Dazzle DVC100 in combination with VirtualDub
without issue. Then Microsoft came up with 2004 and was like "hey, how about breaking working stuff again? Yeah, why not". Since then using Capture AVI produce a lot of Inserted frames with all distorted audio, with the same settings as usual.
With anything =<1909 all was fine, so I started to use a very old laptop to use 1809 LTSC as temporary solution, but I was looking for something new.
compatibility is very important, I found the recommendation for Hauppauge USB-Live2 in this thread: http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/vide...ti-wonder.html
So I wanted to give a go and installed the latest driver form March 2018.
In the first moment I was happy, because the recording is fine again, without any droped/inserted frames.
I am using utvideo
and PCM audio
Then, sadly, I noticed some scratchy audio, when it cliped over 0dB. I would say, it's also the fault of the tape, because the audio is "to loud". But when I use my Pinnacle, I don't have the issue.
I have also tried Win10TV (it's horrible) and the audio is fine here, too.
So it is only, when I use the USB-Live2 grabber. Is there anyway to clean up this during recodings?
I have uploaded one extrem example.
VirtualDub2 with clicking audio noise:
Win10Tv with clean audio:
(Notice how much sharper the VDub2 result is!)
Since other user may use the grabber, too, what can I try here? Is there any way to lower the audio output from VHS recorder?
The audio recoding is set to: "0 Capture device". Other input sources like "1 Analog Audio In (Hauppauge USB-Live2)" do not work. The preview window goes black and nothing shows. So changing the Analog Audio In recoding level in Windows mixer doesn't effect it.
The VHS recorder is a Panasonic NV-HS960
Do anyone have an idea how to solve this? Thank you very much!
