Dazzle DVC Problem: Audio/video out of sync

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

A little while back i bought a dazzle dvc and i've noticed that during capturing sessions of about an hour the audio and video are captured out of sync with the audio being about a second or more ahead of the video thus making it obvious. I've upgraded the software via their website but it still doesn't help. Anybody got any suggestions or ideas why this is happening?

I sometimes see this problem when recording long clips (>30 min). Solution is make sure that DVC is the only program running (besides Explorer and Systray) when recording. Hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete and kill all programs besides Explorer and Systray before recording and this problem will go away. Also, I run DVC v3.20. Running DVC v3.24 crashes my system completely.

Thanks, Kevin

If your Dazzle DVC unit came with v3.14 of the software, do not upgrade to 3.24. It will crash frequently. Call Dazzle Tech Support and they will send you a CDROM with v3.24 at no charge. They don't even recommend installing 3.14 and adding the patch to 3.24. Full official version on CDROM works fine.

Iam running Dazzledvc V3.62 and was having the sync problem full time.I downloaded the latest DirectX update 8.0 and that solved the problem for me. (I think DirectX now has 8.1)
