View Full Version : video "snow" in picture when capturing video

Hello this is the first time I have been on this forum. I just bought my vt3 last week and now I am going through the manual and trying to figure things out. Problem: when capturing video it is slightly "snowy" or in other words has some video noise. I am coming from my camera directly into the VT card. I have tried both composite, and SVHS outputs from my camera, I have tried playing back tape as well as a live feed and the picture still has video noise. I am monitoring the video from both vt vision and my output monitor which is connected to the video output of the toaster card and the results are the same. I have swapped the 16 pin octopus cables and the results are still the same. I believe the switcher is also set correctly. video clips that were previously installed on my toaster before I got it back from the dealer seem to play just fine. Does anybody have any ideas why I am still getting noise in my video coming into my toaster?
