I hooked up my Motorola 6412 DVR to my pc last night. I followed instructions posted on the internet on how to install the drivers and get everything up and running. I got everything set up and my system is recognizing the dvr.
The problem is that when I went to try and run CapDVHS, I don't see anything to record. When I hit the record button, the counter starts working, but if I check the file, it is empty. I also don't see any files within the software. Do I need to have the dvr hooked up to a tv set and then select what I want to record first? I was hoping that just by hooking up the dvr to my pc via Firewire, I'd be able to see what was on the dvr hard drive and then be able to download the data.
How does this work exactly? The instructions aren't clear about how you actually capture the video to your pc. The problem that I have is that I don't have a pc near my tv and dvr box, so if that's not the problem, I don't want to waste my time setting it up this way.
Any help with this would be most appreciated!
