Hdmi Problems - Please Help

Question

Hi, I've just gotten Roxio Gamecap HD Pro, and I've been try to see it up so I can play my PS3 on my TV screen while capturing on my computer. My TV only has one HDMI socket, so I got a HDMI splitter cable plug so I could capture from my TV while my PS3 is connected to the TV via HDMI cable, but the plug won't let me have more than one device (a.k.a. my PS3 and Gamecap) on at once. My PS3 connects straight to Roxio Gamecapture fine, but I can't handle the 2 second delay in playback. I've tried various things like connecting the splitter cable plug from the gamecap and the PS3 instead of the TV but nothing works. And my monitor doesn't have a HDMI input, otherwise I'd be playing it on there. Please, is there anyway around this problem? I'm beginning to think I should have just gotten the SD gamecap.

Imagine that. Another gamer who clicked the Topic Solved button, and made his/her post disappear.

 

Magic will bring it back.

If you follow the instructions, a PS3 will only work with the RGC when a Component cable is used.

 

You should see the preview with hdmi but it will not capture due to the HDCP coding of the PS3.

 

I really have no idea what your connections are, they make little sense the way you wrote them. TV's don't have HDMI OUT so you cannot capture from any TV.

 

What plug would let you have 2 devices?

 

The SD version does not even have HDMI input...

It sounds like he wants to use one monitor/TV for both capture, and play. As you pointed out, Jim, he needs to stick to Component cables.

 

He might be able to do what he wants by using Component cables through the RGC HD Pro to the TV, and either a VGA or HDMI from the capture PC to the TV, then switch between those inputs.
