No Signal On Pc Capture Like Ps4 Hdcp Settings

Question

I am getting a problem like I first encountered with my PS4. The screen is flickering or giving no signal at all as my Roxio Game Capture Pro on my PC. It did the same thing on my PS4. I disabled the PS4 HDCP and the capture is great. I am just wondering if there is a setting on my PC that is preventing me from capturing. It was easy on the PS4 to find HDCP, but I can't seem to find the problem on my PC. I can stream PS3 and PS4, I am just having trouble streaming PC. I would like to capture, Guild Wars 2 and Elder Scrolls Online on my PC. Any help with this would be much appreciated. I have an Intel hd 4200 graphics card, it's 4000 series anyways. I have a Samsung series 5 Ultra laptop is the PC. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Okay, so that's probably the problem. There have been a few folks who've been able to make that setup work. And I'm going to suggest you won't be one of them, and that your laptop isn't up to the task. 1.7GHz processor (2.6GHz turbo) isn't great. If you want to have a machine that'll do that, consider a desktop, machine with a real video card, and a BIG processor. Otherwise, figure on two PCs, one to capture, one to output.

Thank you for your help. I trust it is good advice. I will probably tinker with it to try to squeeze a personal little mini miracle. I like tinkering with computers. But over time, if i can't make anything happen, I will consider your advice on a stronger setup. The only thing that gives me that little glimmer to tinker is, it flashed working, then not working, then working, then not working for a good half hour like HDCP did on my PS4. Anyways, I appreciate you taking the time to reply to the thread, and I could use a stronger machine for streaming the MMO games on high graphic settings. Thank you.

I agree with Dave as to the capability of the laptop....

 

But I am curious :)

 

You are running the RGC Software on Monitor #1? ~ The one shown by using Control Panel - Display - Resolution - Identify

 

I am guessing that you are using HDMI output from your Lap. Does the RGC software show the Green, Ready indication on the Capture button? (if it detects HDCP it will show, Red, Signal Protected)

It show's a red No Signal, and the live stream, start pre-roll, disk, start capture, and flag button, are all dimmed. The hookup is HDMI,

You guys led me to a Data Exection Prevention setting under This PC, System Protection, Properties, Advanced, Performance, Data Execution Prevention. Any thoughts on this setting guys?

I contacted Samsung support and had a live chat, they confirmed it is an HDCP issue, they have told me that this is a processor issue and HDCP, Intel determines it and my 2.5Ghz processor i5 core 3, will have this issue. Higher performance processors, it was said, should not have this issue. Samsung.

No clue how you figure we got you to the Data Execution Prevention setting, nor what it does? I know of no particular reason you would want to turn it off.

 

But, another thought on your capture issue. What is the output setting for your HDMI output? If it's set to 1080p/60fps, try changing it down to 1080i/60fps and see if that makes a difference, or possibly 1080p/30fps.

 

Let us know.

I don't know why you would go off on some wild tangent about something that has nothing to do with capture :huh:

 

Probably best to stick to the things we mention - we don't know everything but do have some experience ;)

Umm... if you're not getting a "Protected Signal" message on the capture screen, I'm not sure HDCP is the problem. Check your video-out settings for your HDMI port, as suggest above before completely giving up.

 

Also, there's no reason a higher performance processor would solve this issue. HDCP would be something added by your video card, and if that's the case, then the Roxio Game Capture unit cannot record it, regardless of the processor involved. I'm not convinced Samsung understands the issue.

Dave is right, HDCP has absolutely nothing to do with the CPU, it is strictly an RGC or GPU matter.

 

TRY what he suggests in Post #10.
