    Until last week I was capturing my analog sources to my HD via my Sony
    DV-900 portable DV recoder/player.

    Now when I hook up the unit, all I get is a "DV in" from the computer

    I also tried using my VX-2000 and had the same results.

    I can record from VHS to a DV tape then capture it from there, but
    whenever I plus the DV cable into the deck/camera I can only to a one
    way transfer from the PC to the DV (or on toa VHS if I have the cable
    hooked up.

    I mess around with installinbg new software at times and the only one
    I remember installing was Pinnacle Edition 5 before the problem
    ocurred. Removing Edition 5 and doing a registry and .dll clean did
    not remove any programs that may be blocking the needed function.

    Even tried to re-install Premiere 6.5 and it didn't clear up the

    Any ideas ehat bit of software is blocking my ability to capture
    analog using my DV cam or deck as the intermediary?

    thanks, Rob Lagerstrom

    Check the menu setting

    A/V -> DV OUT

    and make sure it is ON.

    Good luck.

    Hate to sound lame, but which piece of gear or software are you
    refering to? My DV-900 doesn't show this setting and I can't check my
    VX-2000 right now because I loaned it to a friend.

    Your response mucho appreciated. If I can fix this I can avoid
    spending a few hundred $$$ on a canopus AVC 50 or 100
