Please Help With My Samsung Tablet Setup!

Question

Hi! I just got the Roxio to try to mirror my tablet to my laptop. For this, I have also bought a MHL cable for my Samsung Galaxy Tab S to connect the hdmi from my tab to the capture device. When I turn on the roxio software, it gets no signal from the tab, and I know that the MHL cable works since I've tried to connect it directly to a tv monitor.

Pleeeasee help anyone?

A couple possibilities here. But first, tell us what color the "No Signal" message is. Is it Red or is it Green?

 

And correct me if I'm wrong, but basically, you want to capture what you're doing on your tablet using the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro device? (The word, "mirror" is confusing.)

haha. I'm sorry. At first the signal was red and it said "no signal". I went out to try and buy a HDMI splitter which made my roxio recognize my tablet. Now the status says "Ready". The thin now is that the preview screen keeps flickering, jumping in and out. Picture, no picture, picture, no picture.

Popping up on the preview screen? Or on your monitor? Or both? Disappearing on one (which?)? or both?

 

Just like with the regular gaming consoles, you may have to manually set the output resolution on your Samsung tablet. The Roxio Game Capture apparently doesn't let connected devices know what resolutions are available, so the source devices try to guess and keep switching output resolutions, which can cause issues like you're seeing. So find the output settings on your Samsung and force it to something like 720p and see if that fixes the problem.

Oooh! My tablet has 1080p as output setting, while the roxio has the profile on 720p. Any idea how to change the output settings on galaxy tab s? And it was the preview screen in roxio that is flickering

Sorry, can't help with settings on the Samsung. Check your manual, check on-line... Also check for a 1080i option (in both). I think once you get them both set to a common resolution, things will work. The Game Capture software may not offer a 1080 option unless it's receiving a 1080 signal at the time.

Just some vague thoughts...

 

As far as the 1080 vs 720 - you're Samsung is Not putting out 1080. Roxio only shows what it sees...

 

The flickering or flashes you see are usually from the source trying to handshake with the RGC. Make sure you have it set to a specific output.

 

vague but something to chew on...
