Sorry for the long post. I searched this thread but haven't been able to find any solutions to my problem and I am getting furious. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I have been recording from my Motorola 6412 for about a month now, problem-free.
Just recently, I have lost the ability to view and record from my cable box, and I don't know why. This change did not coincide with any other computer issues.
When I open CapDVHS, everything is as normal except that when I press record, no file information comes up in the boxes. I know it is recording something, because the timer moves and it creates a file of normal size (~1.5 GB for a half hour show), but none of my programs will open it (VLC, Womble)
Similarly, when I open VLC to view live cable, I select the source as normal, but nothing comes up. The play button switches to a pause, but I get no audio/video.
After the problems started, I went to my dad's house (same Motorola 6412). When I plugged into his box, I was prompted to install the drivers again, same as it did the very first time I installed them. I went through the process and successfully viewed and recorded as normal. When I went home and tried it on my box, it worked, but only temporarily and I eventually lost the functionality again.
The computer recognizes the cable box when I plug it in and the device manager still shows the drivers under imaging devices when I have the box plugged into the computer. When I plug the cable box into the computer while the cable box is off, the cable box will power up, so I assume the cable box recognizes the output connection.
Also, I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, and both capdvhs and vclan, but nothing has worked. I even downgraded to service pack 1, just to try something. Nothing has worked
Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
