  1. I've been using Dazzle 150 for over a year with no problems. Starting 2 weeks ago, anytime I turn the Dazzle on (plug into power outlet) I get interference lines on my TV. It seems to only affect my satellite because I don't get the interference lines when capturing from my VCR. Iím wondering if the Dazzle box has gone bad but not sure if that is true why it would only affect the satellite and not the VCR. I guess what seems so odd is that it has been working fine for over a year and it all of a sudden started having problems. Does anyone have a suggestion on what is causing this or what I can to do to fix it?

    Thank you,

    Eric

  2. OK. I went to Circuit City to buy a new Dazzle 150 to replace the one I had. The old one ended up being a little over 2 years old and was past its warranty. Before hooking up the new one I decided to plug the new Power Adapter into the old dazzle 150 and the problem went away. So, I will be returning the new one I just bought and picking up a new power adapter.

    Will any power adapter do or does it have to made for the dazzle product?

  3. Not sure about the power adapter, but I can help with that interference thing if it ever becomes a problem again. I had a problem similar to this with the DVC 150, which BTW now works fine for me and I use it often. Tomk gave me some freeware apps that let you better control the DVC 150 and get more out of it than Moviestar lets you. I could give them to you if you want.

    Try moving your DVC 150 farther away from your capture source. I had interference problems like this, I moved it about 2 and 1/2 feet away and now its fine. You also might want to try reinstalling your drivers.

    You might want to pm Capmaster, he has a dazzle product too. Also try posting here: www.dazzlegeek.com[/quote]

    As long as the power adapter has the right voltage and amperage and pin polarity and plug that fits right then it should be ok,really crappy cheap adapters will put out d.c with too much a.c. ripple causing interference so get a good quality adapter.Also the old dazzle adapter might be putting out too much ac ripple.
    I think,therefore i am a hamster.

  5. Thanks for the replies. Today I went to Circuit City, Best Buy, and Radio Shack but none of them had a power adapter to replace it. Pinnacle's web site is not much help. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement power adapter?


    Dazzle 150
    INPUT: 100-240V ~ 50-60Hz 0.4A
    OUTPUT: +5V---2.8A

    Otherwise I'm not sure... I have one but that doesn't really help you too much.

    And there are little connectors that attach to it so you can match the connector on your existing power supply.

  8. Thank you very much for the link. I guess I was just looking in the wrong places and getting a little frustrated.

    That adapter only goes as high as 2A. He needs one capable of 2.8A

    You're right, that one won't supply enough power. They have lots of universal AC to DC power adaptors to choose from though...

    Yeah, he shouldn't have trouble. My search results were lousy with promising page hits, so he should be able to find a selection of different ones
