Hello Lord Smurf,
As I mentioned in the Audio forum I also am having problems with the audio sync. Here are my computor specs.
Windows XP home service pack 2
Pentium 4 Northwood H/T 3.2 Ghz 512cache proccessor
One Gig of DDR2 ram
160 Gig. sata II C: drive.
400 Gig. sata II dedicated to captures D: drive
ATI X800XT AGP All in Wonder graphics card
Recently reformatted all drives to NTSF format, only bare bones software and hardware devices installed.
I am capturing from a JVC HRS9911u S-VHS VCR
The following are test captures with the latest MMC9.08 and the recently released ATI video Driver 5.11. Also at no time did the ATI MMC software ever indicate any droppped frames with any of the captures I made. I Also had no dropped frames when I captured with the Canopus 110:
1.Captured analog source thru ATI using HUFFyuv
codec. After six attempts, the captured video would always freeze anywhere from the 2 minute to 9 minute mark. The audio however would continue to be captured, although it proggressivly became out of sync.
I then tried using the various other codecs that came with ATI like "DV video" The same thing happened, video froze and out of sync. audio.
I then captured both above scenerios except this time I used the ATI TV tuner. Same thing happened, video froze and audio continues to be captured although out of sync.
I then captured the same analog video except this time I used my Canopus 110 converter. The 110 and my computer captured a full one hour of analog video with no freeze ups and perfect video and audio sync.
I then completely uninstalled the ATI 9.08 MMC softeware and the 5.11 video driver. I then reinstalled the latest ATI 5.11 video driver, however I installed the MMC version 9.03 that came with my original installation CD.
I chose custom installation and opted to only install the 9.03 MMC software. I then attempted to capture from the TV tuner.
This time I captured 40 minutes of TV using the HUFFyuv
codec and had no video freeze ups. That was the good news, Unfortanately, just as all the above scenarios, the audio started out in sync. but ended up about 1 second ahead of the video by the end of the capture.
I even tried different audio settings ie 44k sampling instead of 48k sampling. Same bad result.
I can tell you that I would like to get this ATI card to work. I did some testing and comparing of the quality of the audio that was captured at 44k 16 bit stereo throug the ATI card. I then created an elementry audio wav. file using Procoder 2.0, and then burned with NERO. It blew away the same music audio that I captured with my Canopus 110 when I played them both on my stereo.
Lord Smurf I hope you can help with this one? I made a call to ATI but they were clueless. If you need more info. just let me know.
Is it correct to say that, the only thing that can cause audio sync. problems during capture are dropped frames?
PS I never got passed the point of creating an AVI file. I played both AVI files on Windows media player as well as dropping the AVI files right on my Adobe Premiere Pro time line, both with the same bad results - 777sp2
