Game Capture Hd, Tv Unsupported?

Question

I just got the RGCHD and installed the software. I hooked up my Xbox 360 to the device using HDMI cords, and while the picture on my Laptop is fine, the picture on the TV is not.

The picture on the TV keeps flickering in and out. While it was flickering, I made sure my Console settings were on 720p/1080i, since it does not support 1080p. Still glitchy.

Then I decided to take it out to the front room (where I rarely get to the tv out there) and sure enough, it works on that TV, which is newer than the one I have in my room (Mine is an Olevia, not sure which model, One in living room is a Vizio)

Furthermore, Component cords work on both my tv and FR tv.

Edit: Olevia is like 6/7 year old

Could it just be because of HDCP? Or is there something else it could be?

If the TV in question works okay taking the signal directly from your Xbox 360, but not when you take the signal from the RGC HD Pro, then it's most likely the HDCP encoding that the Roxio unit adds to the signal. I think you pretty well proved that by using your newer TV. You can work around that by getting an HDMI splitter to go between the Xbox and the RGC HD Pro, then feed the other output to your TV, which won't have the HDCP added.

I will get a Splitter then. Thank you.

Well I got a splitter and it still isn't working.

I have Xbox 360 HDMI to Splitter Input Splitter Output 1 to RGC Splitter Output 2 to TV

Still getting nothing on my tv. It's a Maxhood 1080p hdmi 2 port 1x2 powered amplified splitter v1.4 http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-Splitter-1080P-Powered-Amplifier/dp/B00P8KN49G/ref=pd_sim_sbs_23_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=0WYKPQP887Z840RZEM2G&dpID=41ImDXW5xNL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_

If this is not a splitter you can use, can you send me a link to one that will? This is so much more of a hassle to set up than I ever thought it would be. So much extra money I have to spend >.<

Maybe a bad choice of splitters. Looking it up on Amazon, it says, "HDCP Compliant, will not bypass HDCP." And the symptoms you're seeing makes it appear that it will also add HDCP encoding to the incoming signal.

 

So, the question is, do you get a good image on the RGC HD Pro capture screen? Or does it say something like, "signal protected"? If you connect through your splitter to your new TV, does that TV work okay?

 

Sorry, I can't recommend a splitter that will work, since I don't have one. But, a passive splitter like this one (link) seems like it could work. No power, no adding HDCP.

I get a good picture on my RGC screen. Just nothing on my TV. I'm tempted to just steal the front room tv lol.

I'm gonna wait for someone else to recommend me one that actually works. I don't want to spend another 20 bucks and wait over a week just to find out it doesn't work again.

NO, but for $8 bucks, what the hell, and if it doesn't, just return it.
