Xbox One "no Signal"

Question

I've looked through a few of the threads relating to Xbox One issues but haven't found anything that seems to help.

 

I've got everything hooked up correctly. At one point last night I even had the feed playing on my TV (though the Roxio software still said "No Signal"). But today I can't get back to that stage.

 

The software says No Signal. The TV screen does not have any input and gives me the "No activity, will turn off after 2 minutes due to inactivity" message.

 

I don't know if this is related to HDCP, choosing the right Output in the Xbox, or what, but I've done enough research that I feel like I need some direct help at this point.

 

Thanks!

If it were "correctly", it would most likely work -_-

 

The pass through works (Xbox through Roxio to TV) and that tells us little to nothing.

 

You didn't mention the COLOR of the No Signal (which tells us a lot)

 

It does seem like it could be that you didn't SET you output on your Xbox which has to be set to anything but Auto...

By "correctly", I mean simply the two HDMI cords and the USB cord through the RGC device itself.

 

The No Signal is red.

 

I set the Xbox to "HDMI" per instructions from other threads, but that alone did not solve the problem, it seems. Thanks for the help.

 

(The computer was used several years ago to make recordings, and I double checked that it still was meeting the requirements needed by the software as well)

Thanks!

 

HDMI is pretty hard to get wrong :D

 

The Red, no signal is an indication that the Capture software is reading the RGC device OK but the signal going into the RGC device is not valid...

 

If you have anything else around with an HDMI signal output, you can use that to prove this. (even with hdcp, it will show up but you can't record it)

 

Double Check your Xbox One display settings to make sure you have Resolution SET as well as TV connection... HERE click on 'display' ;)

UPDATE: I found another USB cable and used it, got a green Ready signal and managed to record a few minutes of a game. However, when I watched the recording back, the visual was very pixellated. I can try to upload it to Youtube if you'd like to see what I mean. Anyway, here are the tests I did with the old USB cord, before I found the new one:

 

My Resolution is set to 1080p and my TV Connection is set to HDMI.

I checked both a blu-ray player and DirecTV box, and both gave red No Signal messages, and neither appeared on the TV screen when fed through the RGC.

The LED lights that indicate HDMI or YPbPr do not light up either.

Rather, the video playback seems to try to combine all the screens into one screen as it captures. For example, if my controller is highlighting a "1" for 5 seconds, the recording it perfect. Then, if I move my controller cursor to highlight a "2" elsewhere on the screen, the capture flashes quickly between stages of "1" and "2", and it continues to do this for each change in the video. By the time I've scrolled through several "numbers", the capture displays all of those individual stages in one screen. (Hope this makes sense)

Need a screen cap of that, no idea what these 'numbers' are :huh:

 

USB cords almost never go bad but it appears you had one ;)

 

When you have a green Ready, you want to check Options and make sure it is recording at the value you want. If the resolution does not appear (1920 and only 480 is there) it is because your Xbox or the Game itself is only outputting the lower resolution.

 

Are these 'pixels' only in te capture file? Do they show in the capture preview screen? Do they show on the TV you are using?
