I am a total noob to video synths, the vidiot is my first endeavor I received as a gift. I’m not sure it’s related but I did receive one of the DOA units with the cable flipped from a few months back. I followed the video to correct that and got lovely colors and shapes out of the vidiot. However, I cannot get any kind of external video into the vidiot. I’ve tried several old video cams and several vhs players, and while I can see the output from them on the loop through (I think that’s what it’s called) no matter what I do I can’t get the vidiot to process the signals. I’ve read every help post I can and watched all the videos out there and it seems people can process external video easily with theirs but I see no sign of the external video in no matter how much I fiddle.
Am I missing something? Or does the unit need fixed beyond the cable flip?
