I had same issue today . I restarted puter. (opened CS3 which worked then closed CS3 nd Opened CS4 which then magically worked). Have not figured it yet.
FWIW You need 6 pin to 6 pin to power up the ADVC110
You also need to select Analogue Input.
(Suspect you already know this)
Do a test . Hold down button and see if you can get Color Bars to display.
Hey ...you do know you may not get Device Control so you need to run your playback and capture on the fly.
> Sony DCR-TRV830 Digital 8
Dewey, am I missing something? Why not just take the firewire in to Premiere and capture? It won't give time code, but the TRV830 will play the analogue tape out firewire as digital. (I am not certain it supports the function, but I think it does if it will play the tape.)
I didn't think that the digital 8 cameras had the firewire output. Correct me if I'm wrong Dewey, but I presume you are connecting camera via svhs, to the 110. then from there firewire to computer?
Craig & Howard - Thanks for the quick replies.
Craig - I can record from a VCR through the ADVC110 (which is connected to my computer with 6pin firewire). As well, I can capture the TRV830 through Nero Vision. So I'm pretty sure the ADVC isn't the issue.
Stanley - the TRV830 does play the video from the (old) 8mm tape. Just for some reason, Premiere doesn't get the signal (even though other programs do). I'd run the firewire (4pin to 6pin cable would need to be procured) directly to the computer, but the computer already recognizes the TRV830 in device manager through the ADVC unit.
Any way to force Premiere to see the TRV830?
ok, I did a search on this camera, and yes it does have firewire connection. So you should not have to use the 110 at all. just connect camera to computer and presumably, premiere should see it.
I'm going out this weekend to get a 4pin to 6pin firewire cable so hopefully that works.
The one thing that bothers me is that I can "see" the TRV830 and capture directly from it (with device control) from Nero but I can't see it or control it or capture from it in Premiere.
BTW, anyone have any thoughts on why no MPEG-2 export capability?
Trial version, maybe?
There was a Main Concept Encoder upgrade for PPro 1.5. It fixed a number of issues...Not sure if that was one that it fixed, but mine works flawlessly...
