  1. I recently purchased the Hauppauge 1600 card. I've installed it and it's drivers. This particular did not come with capture software. At first I tried to capture video using Premiere but was unsuccessful, only to find out that the 1600 will only capture at mpeg2. Okay. Fine. Then I downloaded VirtualDub. Still no luck.

    I have my Sony EV)-210 Video 8 player connected to the card via yellow composite (w/ s-video adapter at the card end).

    This card has to work with something! Help!

  2. Hmm... VirtualDub wont work because it mainly captures .avi files only...

    Have you tried getting the WinTV7 files from the website? It might be just the thing you need!

    I use the card with WinTV 7 and MCE. You can also control it from various PVR software (e.g. BeyondTV, GBPVR, SageTV, etc.)

    You will need the original install CD to qualify for WinTV 7 download. Or, they will sell you one.

  4. Got it running with WinTV 7. Thank you. Life wasn't this complicated when I had an old Pinnacle card working with DC10 back in the day. Geez! I could use any software, choose the card and capture. Now that I think about it, I probably still have that card laying around somewhere...ten years later.

    Now that I have a connection, I am still having a B&W picture issue while using the S-Video adapter to the end of the composite and while viewing it through the "S-Video" channel. Composite channel is fine, full color. While on these forums, I've read that it could depend on whether the source (i.e. Sony EVO-210 Video 8 player) was capable of outputting in S-Video format. Do we really think this is part of the issue? If so, I'll just accept the composite, but I would sure like to get the best quality I can from these home video transfers at the beginning because my concern is that the quality will degrade once I start converting to AVI for editing in Premiere and converting to DVD later on. Or should I not worry about it too much?

    Thanks everyone!

    I'm not currently capturing SD with my HRV-1600 but there is an S-Video input on the current model card and a supplied adapter for composite in. This is what you get. The little adapter is for composite in. You need to select composite or S-Video in the WinTV software during tuner setup.

    Hmm... Looks like you are stuck with composite then... Check out your options screen, there should be one option that allow you to record in the highest quality possible (approx. 9000kbps, CBR); that should help a little...

    S-Video should work. It plugs directly into the card (no adapter). Win7 "Devices", "Tuner Setup" determines whether the input is assumed composite or S-Video.
