View Full Version : [all variants] Previous Frames in Stream.

I am currently in the process of converting some old VHS tapes to DVD. I decided, first of all, to capture all the videos to a suitable format before mastering the DVDs,
Part way through the process I decided to upgrade my system to 8.04 (actually a Mythbuntu not Ubuntu system, but they are very similar). Since then, all my recordings show previous frames within the stream - sometimes a couple of seconds out of sync. They seem quite random. 'Mencoder' seems to spit out 'Dropped Frames' error messages, but I've also tried with other software ('transcode' and 'lavrec') and get similar results. The only common part being the v4l driver.
Has anyone else noticed this, and more importantly, does anyone know how to fix this? (other than go back to the previous version)

Thanks in advance,

Gareth
