GSTAR capture V3

I am using a GSTAR-ex and I am having problems using the GSTAR CAPTURE program. It works fine with the software supplied with my usb dongle capture AVER hybrid but it lacks astronomy features.
The gstar capture program recognises the video device correctly but will not display any video and the light on the dongle only comes on when the AVER software is running. using windows XP.

ANY IDEAS ???????

Martyn, I have run into such problems when there is not enough current available on the usb bus to support the video capture device. If you have power crazy devices like 3g dongles, remove them and try again. If you are using a laptop with a built in camera, disable it when you use the video capture card.

Unfortunately, these things can be a little difficult to diagnose, but ultimately it is a process of elimination
