USB that ruins everything

by Guy... / February 24, 2004 2:23 PM PST

Can somebody tell me why, in the name of God, I can see my recording in the TV in great quality but when I watch it in my computer through the USB it looks as if someone was puking on it?

Two factors. The tuner in USB TV dongles is not all that great and USB 1.1 bandwidth is very low. The USB TV dongles often degrade quickly as people DROP them and the tuner takes a jolt.

Fix? Get an USB 2.0 device and don't drop it.

Because streaming USB is the camera's WEB cam view. If you wish to view the image in the same quality as the camera then hook it up to the PC with a firewire 4 to 6 pin cable, they way it was meant to be hooked up.
