To me it looks like you set your recording resolution to high, or to
somewhat akward values. Try starting at the default 480x480 and bump it up
slowly. That might help.

I've got the same problem (on all channels AFAIK) when I set the X capture
res to the highest value. It looks kinda strange red-black striped
(sometimes purple too). I think it has something to do with being unable to
sync correctly onto the scanlines.
