Intensity Thunderbolt works with some composite sources

PostTue Oct 06, 2020 4:45 pm

My Intensity Thunderbolt is connected to a MacBook Pro. Capture works great from a video camera, using composite video, so I got all of the setup correct for composite. But if I simply plug in a different composite source (in particular, either of my 2 VHS players) without even stopping the software on the Mac, nothing. Actually, one VHS player shows absolutely nothing, and the other shows the video signal in the application window, but it blanks out about ever 2 seconds. Any suggestions? I thought that all US composite video sources were compatible. I tried adjusting the levels for both video input and output in the setup tool, but that did nothing. I welcome your help!
