Hi

. . . . Samsung says video output is on Ch 60, which works OK when connected to a TV . . .

That is for tuning the TV to the correct RF channel to see the video from the Samsung recorder.

Are you connecting for the Samsung to the video grabber with a SCART to RCA connector (yellow, red and white) ?

Have you selected the Video Grabber as the recording source in Easy Video 5 ?

Was Windows 10 an upgrade from 7 or 8?

Was Easy Video 5 installed before or after Windows 10 ?

Hi John,

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.

Any thoughts?

Hi Alan

. . . . My videograbber is red and white . . .

You could try re-installing the drivers for the USB device, though I suspect as you can see and select the device it is working properly - unless

. . . . Panasonic I used before which has packed up . . . .

The Panasonic packing up has also taken out the video grabber.

Other possibilities are:-

The SCART lead - there are three types of lead available with RCA connectors on one end

  1. In only - these are wired to accept video and audio signals into the recorder
     
  2. Out only - these are wired to connect the video and sound out of the recorder to another device
     
  3. In and Out - these have a small switch on the SCART plug to select in which mode the cable works.

The Samsung recorder SCART sockets are signal direction specific ie one is for video and audio in, the other for video and audio out.

Hi John,

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?

Hi,

I just tried repairing the Videowandler 2 driver from the original DVD, but that came up with the same error message, so it looks like a Windows 10 compatibility issue.

Hi Alan

. . . . (No 0x80096002) "The certificate for the signer of the message is invalid or not found." . . .

You need to turn on the Windows Identity Foundation 3.5 in Control Panel, Programs and Features as shown in the image below.

 

You should then be able to install the drivers.

Hi John,

 

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.

Brilliant! Many thanks for your help.
