Am using an XP SP3 machine with 1394 ports to connect to a JVC DVHS machine (model HM-DH40000U) and using Cyberlink PowerDirector 11 to try and transfer my content from the DVHS to the computer. PowerDirector 11 Ultra sees and identifies the DVHS correctly and even executes a play command when it is first connected, but nothing happens and my controls on the computer don't work. Was hoping someone on this board would have a solution for this. Under Device Manager, my deck does show up as an AV/C device with the yellow ? for needing a driver. I attempted to force load a driver for a JVC HDV recorder/player and some controls seem to show up, but it still will not capture. Don't want to use the CAPVHS application as that appears to only be able to capture in 720x480 mode... Anyone have any ideas on this?

Thanks, Bob

CapDVHS will capture 1920x1080 just fine. Other alternatives include TSReader, OS-X with the Firewire SDK.

What specifically are you trying to capture?

QZ,

Thanks for your response and sorry for my very delayed return... I've recorded a bunch of OTA programming with my DVHS over the years and am just looking for the best way to capture that into the highest quality MPEG4 stream possible and keep all the surround sound, etc... I know my DVHS won't last forever and don't want to lose any of the recordings I've done to this point... Mainly Super Bowl Halftime Shows...

Thanks, Bob

Capture the MPEG2TS from the DVHS deck using one of the tools mentioned above, then offline re-encode to MPEG4 if you feel the need to re-encode and degrade the picture quality.....

At one time I used the original non-Intel version of the Mac Mini with the JVC DVHS machine (model HM-DH40000U). The Firewire connection on the Mac Mini worked very well with the JVC. I used both CapDVHS and TSReader. You might try using a Mac Mini if you can't get your PC working.
