    Mojo on Windows 7 64 bit

    Hi,

    I've tried plugging the Mojo for the first time into my Dell 690 workstation, on which I have installed Windows 7 64 bit. I'm running Media Composer 5, by the way.

    Anyway, when I try to capture with the Mojo, it "gets" the sound, but I don't see any picture.

    If anybody has any ideas, they'd be greatly appreciated...

    Thank you very much in advance,

    Daniel Garcia

    Re: Mojo on Windows 7 64 bit

    By reading the forum I understand that going to the Windows device manager and switching the firewire driver to legacy sometimes fixes problems with MC on Win 7.

    Re: Mojo on Windows 7 64 bit

    Hi,

    I have already switched the firewire driver to legacy, but I still can't get any video to show up on the capture screen, even though the audio comes in fine. Any ideas...? Thanks in advance.

    Re: Mojo on Windows 7 64 bit

    Hi Mr. Rike, thanks a lot for your answer, but please excuse my ignorance... Could you be more specific about what the Video input settings are? As for the cabling, I think the Mojo is plugged into the workstation through a 1394 port... It is the "old" or analog Mojo, which I bought in 2004.

    One thing I've noticed, is the letters "DV" don't seem to light up on the Mojo when I plug it into this workstation, and yet they did when I plugged it into my Dell 670/Windows XP 32 bit system, where it worked.

    Thanks in advance,

    DGG

    Re: Mojo on Windows 7 64 bit

    ...and please more details about Your setup, QuickTime version? nVidia card and driver?

    Re: Mojo on Windows 7 64 bit

    What type of deck/camera are you capturng from, and how is it connected to the Mojo?  Firewire?  Composite?  Component?

    Teh video input setting tells Avid where to expect to get a signal.  If it doesn't match the actual sigmal path, then you get no video.  Likewise, if the signal path is incorrect, or doesn't match the video input setting, then again, no video.

    Re: Mojo on Windows 7 64 bit

    Thanks a lot for all the answers...

    -Yes, confidence view is enabled.

    -Quicktime version is 7.6.6 (the latest, I believe).

    -The Nvidia card is Quadro FX 4500. On driver version it says: 8.15.11.8593

    I have tried capturing with composite and Super video, and in both cases I get the audio but no video.

    BY THE WAY! I have just tried capturing by plugging a camera (DV) straight into the 1394, and I get the same result: audio but no video. The thing is, I had gotten this to work already on Avid Media Composer 5, and the only change since then is that I have installed Windows 7 64 bit professional.

    So I guess this means that the problem is not the Mojo, which is a relief, actually.

    Any ideas?... Thanks so much for all the help.

    Re: Mojo on Windows 7 64 bit

    ...I think I finally got it to work by downloading a driver from the Nvidia website.

    Thank you SO much to all of you who took the time to help me, I was in a tight spot.

    Thanks again!

    Re: Mojo on Windows 7 64 bit

    Daniel - just to let you know that I have the same system as you - Dell690 with Analog Mojo. So, if you have any issues, please let me know as it may be possible for me to try them to check if I'm getting the same thing. The specs are almost the same.

    Re: Mojo on Windows 7 64 bit

    We just upgraded an 8200 fro Windows 7 Pro and MC5.  I was actually anticipationg a lot of issues using the analog mojo, but I was very pleasantly suprised that it worked first time out.  We followed all of the Avid guides pertaining to quicktime version and nVidia driver version.
