right now I finished my installation of the RGC HD Pro - after appr. 24 hours continuously! successfully!
I just wanna tell you my experience (more sheer despair) I made installing the capture box. it may help you...
1. after 6 hours of trying hundreds (feeled) of different cable combinations, software installation and deinstallation I found a real EXTRAORDINARY error for my failure. search for the fault in the picture:
thanks to the person who assembled this box !!! color blind?
2. if you use a component cable from the PS3 to your capture device AND another component cable from the box to the TV the signal passes through the capture device without connection the USB to the PC. so you can play without PC.
3. the video editor didn't work - dll error etc. I made a directX update at windows 8 (without switching off antivirus or firewall) and then it worked suddenly.
4. the last problem was the 1 second videos which is a topic in several threads here. I only could record with 576p. after a long search I found out that it was my LG monitor which was connected to my notebook. it has only a RGB connection to the NB and that's not compatible with the software. after disconnection the monitor it worked.
I hope some of my hints can help you!!! ;-))
now it's nearly 7 o'clock in the morning. good luck and greetings from Austria!
