Video Capture for Vista 64-bit?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?S2V2aW4=?=, Jul 3, 2007.

  1. I am looking for a video capture device with drivers for 64-bit Vista. I
    would like to use it to capture video from my VCR that I can later burn to a
    DVD. Does anybody know of such a device? I have not been able to find one for
    64-bit Vista.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

  2. I should add that I am using a laptop so I would be looking for something I
    could connect to a USB 2.0 or IEEE 1394 port.

    Thanks!

    Canopus offers the AVDC-boxes, which convert analogue video to digital via
    firewire. There is a few more manufacturers, but I always recommend the
    Canopus, because they work good :)

    KWORLD DVD Maker USB 2.0 claims to have Vista 64 bit drivers. I got
    one of their analog TV USB sticks as a Fry's freebie and it works
    under X64.

  7. Thanks for letting me know about this product. I ordered it and received it
    today. I was able to get the video to work, but was totally unable to get the
    software to recognize my audio. Several other features of the software were
    unresponsive and unstable under Vista 64-bit. I think the next generation of
    the PVR software will be needed to smooth things out. A sincere thanks -- it
    was certainly worth trying.

    Regards,

    Kevin

    Hi, Cari.

    Thanks for posting that! It motivated me to try again to get my
    WinTV-HVR-1600 working for analog TV channels, as well as digital.

    I downloaded the new MCE_CD_31G.ZIP and ran its Setup.exe. I was surprised
    and disappointed that it finished installing so quickly. Looks like all
    that really gets updated is the Infrared receiver driver. Then I saw that
    the Installation Guide says it's for the 1600 "MCE Kit". That is, the board
    that runs on MCE, not on Hauppauge's standalone application WinTV2000. The
    connectors shown on that Installation Guide are different from the ones on
    my hardware, which I bought in January, and which is the HVR-1600 with no
    suffix. The MCE Kit apparently comes with a USB cable and a separate box
    for the IR's remote control; my older card has a mini-jack to plug cable
    directly into the card. The new IR32.exe software is for the new IR system,
    not for my old one. So that part of my day was a disappointment.

    But, in studying the old and new Installation Guides, I realized that the
    OTHER coax input on my card is where I must plug in my antenna to pick up
    analog (NTSC) channels. On the MCE card, both connectors are labeled "TV
    Connector", but both have subtitles, too. One says "for Cable TV input";
    the other says "for ATSC digital TV antenna". On my card, the first says
    "TV Connector, for Cable TV; the other says "ATSC Digital TV connector".
    I've been using this other input, which is for ATSC and receives only
    digital channels.

    I don't have cable TV, but the guy who built my house installed cables to
    every room for use by the cable company. So I have TV cables without cable
    TV. (Does that make sense?) I've connected my omnidirectional antenna in
    the attic to those cables. So my over-the-air reception comes to each
    room - and to my computer - via those ordinary coax cables.

    I moved the coax cable to that input that says "for Cable TV" and voila!
    Analog TV! ;<) I have a second tuner, a Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick, which
    plugs into USB, uses the same antenna (via a splitter), and gets ATSC
    digital channels.

    So, now, for the first time, I'm able to watch both analog and digital TV
    channels on my computer. ;<) Now all I have to do is figure out how to get
    my IR remote control working with MCE. NEITHER Hauppauge nor Pinnacle TV
    software will run on my Vista Ultimate x64, so I have to use Vista
    Ultimate's Media Center to use either or both of the tuners.

    Those Installation Guides have pictures and should be clear as a bell - but
    they leave me SO confused! Until I've figured out what they mean, and then
    they seem almost as clear to me as to the folks that wrote them.

    Anyhow, I can now watch on my computer about a dozen analog channels and a
    half-dozen digital channels, and I can record one while watching another.
    ;<)

  9. Vista 64 capture

    Hey Kevin, I was recently in the same situation as you and I came across a product: KWORLD DVD maker USB 2.0. I am using it right now on Vista 64 and it works great. I tried a few other products before this one and none of them worked. This one works great and best of all, it is the cheapest priced one of all the solutions I've tried and researched on the web. You can purchase it from tiger direct for $39.99. Anyhow, good luck.
