Hi knowledgable HTF'ers, I am trying to caputure old videos on my PC for DVD conversion. Technically I'm pretty sure that I'm doing everything right, but I'm still having a problem with audio clipping going from my VCR to my sound card. I use Virtualdub to capture and it works fine, but the problem is that I have the line-in volume slider (in both the PC volume adjust program and in Virtualdub) set to the very lowest setting above "mute," and I still get a small amount of clipping during the loudest regions (i.e., the volume meter bars in the Virtualdub audio check window still go all the way to the end from time to time). My computer is an HP multimedia PC, model m270n. I am using a secondary capture card to capture the video in AVI, since the primary one used for the Mediacenter functions is a hardware MPEG encoder and it's harder to mess around with the captured video. In any case, my problem is audio and I feed the audio directly into the sound card to avoid sync issues. The sound card is called a "Realtec AC'97 integrated sound card." If anyone has either a hardware or software workaround to this issue I would love to hear it.
