ok just an update on this.
I got another HDD and installed windows XP 32bit on it, because no matter what i tried, W7 would not record, and only previewed in Black and white.
fresh XP install on a formatted HDD.
Amcap doesnt work. i open it, and it freezes, and shows an error message (attached as clipboard1.jpg) if i try to resolve the issue by following the steps it suggests, it force exits amcap and restarting it shows the same error (with the box still ticked, as if i hadnt changed anything) reinstalled amcap about 5 times now. no change.
Ulead: preview audio in both PAL and NTSC. (i can hear the menu screen from teh xbox as i move along)
however, NTSC previews video in black and white, and PAL registers as "no video input detected" ie no video to go with my glorious sound.
NOTE here: when i switch from NTSC -> to PAL in the settings, i get temp, but messed up, colour. hitting the ok button breaks the connection though. no video. See attached "clipboard03.jpg)
Clipboard04.jpg is what happens when i go from PAL to SECAM in options. note the error box which appears when i hit the "capture video" box.
ok so i stuck with NTSC to try get SOMETHING out of this POS easycap card. black and white with colour is a start. i hit "capture video" and a few seconds pass, nothing happens, and the "stop capture" box becomes "start capture" again. record time ellapsed: 00:00:00
it records nothing.
Im so angry and frustrated i nearly threw my PC out the windows. i need this working by next week.
just as a side note, im testing it with the XBOX360, but ill actually be using this with a VCR, (which i dont have my hands on yet) is it possible it'll work fine with the VCR and just isnt working with the 360?
im getting very desperate here...................
ALSO, i had to reinstall the easycap drivers twice because it didnt work at all the first time round.
