In the past I had a very easy time getting my video camera working with the Vidiot. It was plug and play and super fun.
Now, I am unable to get a ‘still’ screen, regardless of what I try. Is my video input module fried or am I missing an obvious ‘neutral’ setting? (I used another video module as video source earlier, maybe it can have caused damage?)
The camera has RCA out, and displays fine on my projector if I take the Vidiot out of the chain. I tried still images and video, no difference. The signal is clearly coming through, I can see the image shooting extremely rapidly diagonally across the screen, with all kinds of distortion and craziness. When I unplug the camera, the crazy diagonal movement stops and all is quiet again. I think I tried all possible combinations of settings and patching. I spent many hours trying at least.
I hooked up my PS2 and it looks fine on my projector, but when the signal goes through Vidiot I can clearly see the menu screen of the game flying diagonally. There are many of them, so many smaller screens flying across diagonally. It’s like an extremely aggressive screensaver basically.
Edit: Big black diagonal bars also appear as soon as I connect the video camera, these move in the same diagonal direction at the same quick pace.
I am unable to affect direction or speed of what’s going on except by unhooking the video camera.
The video module I used is the critter & guitari video scope. Could it damage the Vidiot?
The identical setup worked flawlessly before, so now I wonder if I damaged my video input? Hopefully it is user error.
Thanks for any help!
