View Full Version : Vegas 7.0 and Premiere CS3 won't recognize hv20
2008 June 20th, 22:47
Hooked up my HV20 to import some footage and Premiere CS3 says in the capture window "Can't activate recorder. Try resetting camera". Loaded up Vegas 7.0 and in the capture window it says "Device is not available." IEE1394 device is selected, but nothing is happening.
Windows XP sees the device. Restarted computer, camera. Tried plenty of times and same bogus result.
It's worked fine until now. I did, however, install all the items listed in the 24p pulldown thread today: http://www.hv20.com/showthread.php?t=218... don't know if that would have something to do with the problem.
Any ideas anyone?
Have you tried a system restore to when it last worked?

Yeah, tried a system restore and still having trouble.

How about deleting away all that "stuff" on the 24p pull down you put on before you were having trouble? And then trying it...

What happens if you power down everything, turn on the camera, and then turn on the computer? Does the camera show that a connection exists? Have you tried using a different firewall cable.

The same thing happened to me once or twice. Along with that, Premiere Pro started to freeze in a nonsense way.
Try re-installing Premiere Pro. Somehow I fixed it and made it work, so why couldn't you :)

The weird thing is Vegas is doing the same thing, as is HDVSplit. It's not just exclusive to Premiere.
Removed all applications installed since last import -- AVISynth, XVid, and Quicktime. Still does the same CRAP.
However, I CAN capture footage in Standard Def. Hooked up my old ZR500 and could capture in Vegas. Also, could do the same with my HV20. Thank God, was hoping it was not a camera issue.
Am I just always a victim of Murphy's Law? This is truly a what in the **** situation.

In many NLE's you have to set the timeline properties to match the video standard that you are trying to capture. Are you sure that the two match?

First of all, if you let anyone touch your camera to play around with it, more than likely they jacked up menu settings.
There is a menu option for the HV20 that's available when the camera is in PLAY Mode called DV OUTPUT. However, when the camera is connected via firewire this option cannot be accessed. Without firewire connection the option is available. If "DV LOCK" is selected, you're never going to be able to capture in HD, even if the screen on the camera when connected shows "HDV/DV" on the screen.
