#1061, "dvgrab and Canopus ADVC-55"
Edited on Thu Jan-15-09 12:39 AM by nescivi

          

Hi,

I am trying to get a capture from a Canopus ADVC-55 working; I have an analog camera connected to the Canopus and I would like to capture it's image.

The output I get when I use dvgrab (no options defined, so defaults) is:

Found AV/C device with GUID 0x0020110114006b80
"" 0.00 MiB 0 frames
Capture Stopped
Error: no DV

The first line comes immediately, then there is a pause for a while, and then it gives the error message.

I'm on Debian unstable, with a 2.6.26 amd64 kernel.

gscanbus gives me this info on the device:

SelfID Info
-----------
Physical ID: 0
Link active: Yes
Gap Count: 63
PHY Speed: S400
PHY Delay: <=144ns
IRM Capable: Yes
Power Class: None
Port 0: Connected to parent node
Port 1: Not connected

Unit Spec ID: 0x0000A02D
Unit SW Version: 0x00010001
Model ID: 0x00000000
Nr. Textual Leafes: 1

Vendor: CANOPUS CO., LTD.
Textual Leafes:
Canopus

AV/C Subunits
-------------
Tape Recorder: 1


And shows under the AV/C controls in the status message,
"OK"
alternated with
"Winding stopped"

I am connecting to the Canopus through Firewire from my laptop, which has the 4-pin connector; so I am powering the Canopus from an external power supply.
The status LED on the Canopus is on and red.

Any hints on how to get this thing working?

Set the convert to be in the analog-to-DV mode, and use the dvgrab --noavc option. Most analog converters change direction based upon the AVC commands. dvgrab sends a Play command normally, and most converters interpret this to mean analog->DV, but some might not. Also, dvgrab ignores frames with a timecode of 00:00:00, and the --noavc suppresses that rule.

Ok,

turns out it was a power issue (now using the device with a 12V, 300mA supply). Took me a night of sleep to figure that out.

The device itself has no switches to set it into any modes.

But it responds to avc controls from Kino or dvgrab.

or
dvcont play
puts it in the right setting.

With the dv4l program and vloopback module, I can use it now in my application.

The status LED then shows green and I get an image.

I am having a similar problem.

The ADVC-55 has a red light on it at the moment. It is connected via Firewire.

When I use dvgrab i get the following return:

Found AV/C device with GUID 0x002011011400abcb
Warning: Cannot set RR-scheduler
Warning: Cannot disable swapping
"" 0.00 MB 0 frames
Capture Stopped
Error: no DV


I have checked the power and I have the required 5V adaptor, 1.5amp, plugged in and the LED is on, noting it is operational.

I am using Ubuntu 8.04.

gscanbus returns the following information:

SelfID Info

PHY Speed: S400

Please help.
