I have recently hooked up my Dazzle DVD Recorder HD to my Nintendo Wii and I am using xSplit to record it, however, the recording is in black and white.
I have read that amcap is the program to use in order to fix this, however when I install amcap, every time I launch it I get a blue screen of death.
I am therefore asking for one of two things:
a) Is there an alternative to amcap which would allow me to record in colour
b) Is there a way of stopping the BSOD when launching amcap
I have already looked for various ways of stopping the BSOD however none of worked yet.
Any help will be much appreciated

You need a capture device/software that supports PAL60 -- NTSC scan rates with PAL chroma. The Dazzle dvc100 supports that with amcap -- maybe that's what you have. I don't know why amcap is having problems. What OS are you running? Try running in compatibility mode for earlier versions of Windows.

I believe that the Dazzle DVD Recorder does support PAL 60 as I got it off of a recommendation from someone who uses it to record their Nintendo Wii.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that amcam is the software that supports it, which unfortunately isn't working for me
AmarecTV is a possibility, but it is a much more complex tool than Amcap. There is a guide here: https://kb.speeddemosarchive.com/Amarectv_configuration
You need to set up the the drivers to use PAL_60. If using AmarecTV, you use the "Device Setting" button on the "Graph 1(Device)" Tab to access the analog capture properties dialog window for the device. Next, select "PAL_60" in the drop down list for the Video property in the small pop-up "Properties" window. If PAL_60 isn't on the list, then your device does not support it.
I cannot give much more help than that. I never used AmarecTV very much, and never used XSplit at all because I don't capture video games, only TV shows from a set top box.
AmarecTv has been a great help, thanks for the suggestion.
Pal 60 is on the list, however the screen now looks like it has a purple filter to it.
I will keep trying to mess around with some settings and hopefully fix it.
Thanks for the help quiet.
