I am trying to convert S-VHS tapes to DVDs using the Canopus ADVC110. One plugs in the RCA and s-video cables into the converter, and it is outputed via firewire. However, since I have a Macbook Pro with a firewire 800 port, and the ADVC110 only has a 400 port, I bought a 400 to 800 firewire cable.

Despite purchasing cables by both Dynex and Belkin, the audio fluctuates greatly (depending on how I move and tilt the wire around). It is like tuning a TV antenna. Does anyone know why this occurs? Do these firewire converters usually have audio problems? Video has not been affected. Any help is appreciated.
