Getting no video transfer using Easy Video 5, Windows 10, Samsung SV-671B, and red video grabber dongle. Blue light comes on OK but no video is trtansferred. Samsung says video output is on Ch 60, which works OK when connected to a TV. How can I fix this?
I am connecting using Scart to RCA. I did select the video grabber as the source in Video Easy 5, although I am not convinced that the model offered is the same as the one I actually have, which came with a copy of "Rescue your Videotapes" Version 4.
Windows 10 was an upgrade from Windows 8, which was running Video easy 4 but not with the Samsung which I just got to replace the Panasonic I used before which has packed up. I bought the upgrade to Video Easy 5 because 4 would not run with Windows 10. Consequently VE5 was installed after Windows 10.
My videograbber is red and white with a blue light and has the number 2310B018745.
Many thanks for your input. I think the driver issue might be the problem. I tried downloading the red & white Videowandler 2 driver, which downloaded and unzipped OK, but when running the installation it came up with an error message at the end of the installation process (No 0x80096002) "The certificate for the signer of the message is invalid or not found."
After doing that it (Videowandler 2) did not appear on the import options list within Video Easy 5. I am offered Magix usb videograbber 2 as an option, which I select, and then the "Composite" option which activates the "Continue" button, which clicks through to the import screen OK, but no signal is to be seen. However, the blue light on the usb videowandler is on.
I also tried selecting channel 60 on the Samsung remote, but that had no effect. When I checked the Samsung by plugging it into the TV, I had to select channel 60 on the TV.
So, it looks like I can't install the driver at the moment. What next?
Managed to get it working now. I have to confess I had the Scart in the wrong socket - D'Oh!
I also did your last suggestion but the same error message came up, so I did a restart and a new option came up in the import box for Line (USB 2861) which worked. The Macix Videograbber 2 option also worked for video but not sound. The USB 2861 works for video and sound.
