Same setup as the other thread (Canon HF100 camera), only connecting via the component cables. No signal at all. I doublechecked that the camera was sending signal by plugging it into a TV, and it was good there. Tried pinning the input to component with pivideo –source, still nothing. Power cycled everything, and brought it up with the component cables connected (and no HDMI), still no signal coming in.
This is most likely a resolution/format issue. If your device is sending an unsupported format then PiCapture can’t deal with it. Please make sure that your source is providing 480p, 720p, or 1080p video. There is “special” support to capture 1080i at lower resolution, but this is an HDMI-only feature.
