Tough Fix Lagging Problems, Please Help.

Question

I've been using Roxio Game capture for almost a year now, and have been flushed with a long series of problems since use, so I've gotten quite used to coming on the forums and looking for fixes to these issues. Until now I've never had to actually post a problem because usually I can find a fix somewhere, but this time nothing seems to work. I keep getting lagging issues when capturing and noticeable frame rate drops; I've tried playing with the settings, I've tried uninstalling and re-installing about 4 times now, I've tried cleaning out my pc in case it was the issue, but my pc is working fine, my pc can run the capture and it has been for almost a year with fixable issues and over 50 captures taken without lag(a few other captures have lag issues, but they were fixed and not counted in the 50 without lag), I've tried switching between xbox 360 and ps3 in case it was an issue with the video game system settings, but after all this it's nothing but lag. Please help me roxio forums, you're my only hope.

For clarity, 'lag' is usually thought of as the play in the Preview Pane being behind the play in the Monitor...

 

Dropping frames or slow speed recordings are completely different!

 

Nothing can be done about 'lag' all cards, external as well as internal, have some.

 

Dropped frames & slow speeds are performance issues and we can usually address that!

 

Looks like you already tested for HDMI vs Component. ~ sometimes the picture adjustments you might make in Component could be a cause.

 

I would suspect a recent update in the PC...

 

And along those lines, Video Card (software or drivers) are the most likely culprit!

 

Another runner up is HDD free space. The gamecap needs 6.5 GB/Hr and your HDD must have plenty of free, un-fragmented, space to put that mass of data away in!

 

Posting your PC specs would be of interest too.

 

Let us know what you find ;)

What program do you really have? You posted in the "PC Game Capture" forum which is meant for users with the PC Game Capture program but you state you have an Xbox360 and PS3 which requires a different program. So clearly state what program you are using and your thread will be moved to the correct forum
