    Capture from DV Tape

    TVPOA Chan3 Level 1

      For several years I have been using a Panasonic DV camcorder as a DVCR for capturing to Prem Pro 1.5. Using DV out into a Capture card on a HP Windows 8 computer.

       

      Now I just tried it with PP CC and gives me a message "Can't activate Recorder. Try resetting camera".

      After much experimentation, I find if I turn the camera on in Camera mode before opening Capture then when it shows the picture from the camera if I quickly switch it to VCR I can use it in the normal way.

       

      I was wondering if there is a setting buried somewhere that could correct this condition?

       

      Also I tried a borrowed Sony DV VCR and it worked without any special startup.
