I am attempting to capture using vegas and having bizarre results.
Here is my setup:
Sony Hi8 CCD-TRV57 for playback. Analog out via RCA into a Sony DCR-TRV38 Digital Camera for the pass through. Out of the TRV38 via Firewire into a brand new SIIG 2-Port FireWire PCIe card.
IF i ignore the Hi8 and just play some MiniDV tapes in my TRV38 it captures fine using V12. However, if i try and use the TRV57 passing through the TRV38 the vegas capture screen show a second of the video but then says "no capture device".
If i play the 57 passing through the 38 using VirtualDub free software, it captures fine!.
So i know the signal path is working as it should.
Any thoughts or suggestions on what i should do? I'd rather capture inside of Vegas if given a choice. Seems like there is something i am overlooking inside of Vegas.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
