>> Stay informed about: Curious problem with Vaio (ATI Rage Mobility) and Pinnacle..
First I should say that I haven't verified this with my own eyes.
I'm trying to help someone 170 miles away to render a video.
A friend is trying to edit video down to VHS tape using a Sony
Vaio, Pinnacle Studio 8 and the Pinnacle Linx. The Vaio, he says,
is a PCG933A, which, I have read, is equivalent to a PCGF650. The
manual says this machine has a Rage Mobility chipset with 8mb sdram.
The Vaio has a composite video out, and he's running that and
the audio out to his VCR.
He has the video captured and edited, he just can't get it out
He says that the VCR sees whatever is on the laptop screen, so
he seems to have the cables set up properly. But when he chooses
"vga device" as the video out device in Studio 8, the video plays
on the laptop screen but the VCR sees "frames and frames of
I don't see how this is possible, unless Studio is somehow disabling
the composite out. If for some reason this is what is happening,
(how?) would a tool like tvtool help?
Any and all help would be appreciated. He's extremely frustrated,
to the point where he's about to perform "vigorous preemptive
on the laptop.
