Up until yesterday, I've never had a problem using my Pyro A/V Link to capture footage from my old Hi-8 camera. That being said, I haven't used it since I switched to Mini DV a couple of years ago. Anyway, I decided to capture some of my old Hi-8 footage yesterday using the Pyro and Premiere Elements 4. I had no problem for the first 20 minutes or so ... and then capture stopped and PrEl 4 froze. After killing the program using task manager I tried again. I was able to see and hear my footage playing in the capture window but as soon as I clicked the "Get Video" button, the footage kept playing in the capture window but nothing was actually being captured and the rest of the program totally froze. I tried several more times but had the same results.
As a test, once I re-started the program I hooked up my Mini-DV camera and it captured without a problem. Any thoughts or suggestions?
