    Capture from TV Tuner

      I can't seem to figure out how to use Adobe Premiere to capture from the installed TV Tuner. I am able to use the Capture feature in Windows Movie Maker just fine, but the Capture function in Premiere only checks the firewire port...

      Any ideas?

            Yes... that is ALL Premiere will do, since that is all that is written in the program code

            When I used Premiere 6 and a Pinnacle Dv500 card... Premiere only SEEMED to be doing the capturing... it was actually placing a program call to the installed Dv500 software, and the Dv500 software did all the work behind the Premiere screen

            As far as I know, no such software add-in has ever been written for any version of Premiere Pro

            For an analog source (tape or, maybe, TV) look at...


            Or Canopus brand http://www.videoguys.com/canopus.htm

            "Matt with Grass Valley Canopus in their tech support department
            stated that the 110 will suffice for most hobbyist. If a person
            has a lot of tapes that were played often the tape stretches and
            the magnetic coding diminishes. If your goal is to encode tapes
            in good shape buy the 110, if you will be encoding old tapes of
            poor quality buy the 300"
