Video Capture with Pinnacle DC10+ Card


I am trying to capture video from an analog Sony camcorder using Linux Video Studio, the front end to the mjpegtools, through a Pinnacle/Miro DC10+ PCI capture board, for which I compiled the necessary Zoran zr36067 modules specifically.

I capture video, but...

My PC has crashes soon after (it stops responding altogether) following 'use' of the video device.

This has occurred consistently 3 times. I recall that the last time it was when I was browsing for a new output file, whilst the video was still in the preview window.

I also notice that there is no audio in my captured file, and there was a very slight issue of 'non-interlacing' (stripiness) in my test. I am concerned that if the video was more fast paced it would be a worse issue.

Please help if possible.
Thanks.

First thing is to look in your logs, especially /var/log/messages. Look for messages near the time crashes occured. If unsure what they mean, post them.

This bit looks suspicious:

DC10plus[0]: zoran_open(X, pid=[25797]), users(-)=0

It seems that the driver has problems talking to the device. Which version of the driver do you have?
