I am having trouble outputting avi files from Pinnacle Studio 9 Plus to my VCR. I am using a video output cable from the Nividia video card in my pc and have plugged it into the 'video in' of my VCR. I have tried this process with the S-video cable both connected and disconnected (from the pc to the TV) and keep getting the same message from Pinnacle: "The deck could not be initialised". There are no options to add to the "playback devices" in Pinnacle other than DV camcorder and VGA display.
Can you please help?
Also, for anyone up to a challenge, I am not able to view my Pinnacle rendered footage on my TV screen during editing. Again, using Nividia, I can 'clone' my pc screen on to the TV but viewing anything other than the Pinnacle timeline interface doesn't seem to be happening i.e. I cannot seem to get a full screen image on the TV.
