Help Me Setting Up The Ps3

Question

I'm too stupid to understand what the manual says. After watching some tutorial videos on Youtube, I still don't understand at all. All are confusing to me so I started this thread hoping someone can help me.

 

1. WHAT I HAVE

 

- A non CD/DVD drive laptop

- A PS3 (actually 2, 1 jailbreak and 1 no)

- A Roxio Gamecap HD Pro device

- A Component cable with 3 plugs: read, white and yellow

- A HDMI cable (actually 2, because I have 2 PS3)

ASK: Is this enough to start recording? Do I need more devices/Items?

 

 

2. WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND

 

Let me take a picture of the manual included in the package.

Please notice the red underlines.

 

ASK:

1. "FOR PLAYSTATION 3, LEAVE THE HDMI CABLE CONNECT..." --> CONNECT TO WHAT? WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER END OF THE HDMI CABLE?

 

2. "HDMI DOES NOT WORK FOR PS3 DUE TO HDCP..." --> IF IT DOESN'T WORK, WHY YOU MENTIONED THE HDIMI IN 1. AND LATER????

 

 

3. "NEXT, FOR HDMI, PLUG THE OTHER END OF THE HDMI CABLE TO HDMI IN OF ROXIO...." --> MY UNDERSTANDING IS THE HDMI IS CONNECTED TO THE PS3, AND THE OTHER END CONNECTED TO ROXIO DEVICE. RIGHT? SO WHAT'S ABOUT THE HDMI FOR TV?

 

 

4. "FOR PLAYSTATION 3, CONNECT EITHER HDMI CABLE OR... AT THE BACK OR SIDE OF YOUR TV" --> SO IF ONE (01) HDMI CABLE IS USED AT 3, THEN AT 4 IT REQUIRES ANOTHER HDMI CABLE. IN TOTAL, WE WILL NEED 2 (TWO) HDMI CABLES????

 

 

5. WHAT DOES "RCA AUDIO CABLE" STAND FOR?

 

 

6. I ONLY SEE COMPONENT CABLES WITH 3 PLUGS: WHITE, RED AND YELLOW OR BLUE, GREEN AND RED. BUT WHY THERE'RE 5 HOLES IN THE ROXIO DEVICE???

WHAT IS "Y", "PB" AND "PR"???

 

 

 

Sorry for my bad English.

Can anyone give me the flowchart for setting up Roxio Gamecap HD Pro with PS3, not the verbal manual.

The cables that you show are not component cables but composite cables. As the manual says, you need the Red, Blue and Green component cables which are not supplied with the package.

 

RCA audio cables are the the standard red & white audio cables.

 

Have you downloaded the tutorial video on installing for PS3?

You can also download the setup guide from that site

 

That error message you show means you have tried to start a 2nd instance of the program

Did you download the Quick Start Setup guide from the link I posted as well as the tutorial? It is different from "your" manual

You will need this cable from your PS3 to the Roxio unit.

Yes I downloaded the pdf file.

So what I understand is:

 

- Connect Component cables: PS3 ---> Roxio in ports

- Connect HDMI cable: Roxio out ports --> TV

- Connect USB cable: Roxio -->PC

 

Right? I only need only 1 Component cable?

 

This official picture makes me confused, because there're 2 component cables.

For PS3 you have to use component cables for the input to the Roxio device. For the output from the device you can use either the HDMI or the component cables. This is explained clearly in the setup guide.

In this picture, the UPPER set of wires are the Pass Through to your TV or Monitor. The ONLY pass through choices are Component as well as HDMI. HDMI OUT should work in this case so it is shown.

 

Assuming you get the wiring right, I am still a little concerned about the error message you showed in Post #2. If you still get that message, let us know.

 

Nice pictures by the way ;)

Well, after uninstalling and reinstalling the software several times, it doesn't cure the error message I shown at post #2.

 

Then I installed the software to another location other than C: drive, now the soft ware is OK.

 

Today I got the Component cable.

Well, can you look at the my recording screen? I still need help.

Here's the description.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jzJfUOS5hI

 

At first, I plugged Component cable from PS3 to in Port of Roxio.

Then plug the Usb to PC, turn on the PS3.

It says no signal.

But you can see my PS3 screen on Roxion screen about 1 second. This is strange.

 

(Look at 0:29)

 

Then I plugged the HDMI cable from PS3 to in port of Roxio.

Now Roxio says: Ready to capture.

But actually it has a black screen.

 

And the PS3 screen still blank on Roxio screen for a second....

 

I don't know why.

Glad you are getting closer to success :lol:

 

The Delay you see in the preview window is normal to almost all capture devices. There is a lot going on inside the device to convert the signal from Input into something the software can use, which is converted even again into MTS.

 

You will still need to use a Monitor or TV to 'play' the games on.

IN THIS VIDEO, THE GUY PLUGS COMPONENT CABLE FROM PS3 to ROXIO output PORT

AND IT WORKS.

How can this be?




And below is my video.


I plugged component cable from PS3--> Roxio output port. Still no signal but I can hear the game sound from Roxio's PC screen.

If your recording on 'C' drive? "10+ GB free recommended for video recording"

MP4 recording does NOT work! Stick to m2ts and all will be well -_-

 

The mp4 does work but only if you keep your recording less than one hour. Even then you are wasting your time! The way it works is that it saves as an m2ts file then After you stop, it converts that file into mp4 (time consuming). At the end of the conversion, whether successful or not, it deletes the m2ts file :huh:

 

Wiring... Yes we have found that Component can be input on either side of the HD Pro. HDMI cannot!!! The HDMI he shows is the pass through going to the monitor/tv that he is using to play the game on.

I used 2 HDMI cables: 1 connects from PS3 to Roxio device, 1 connects from Roxio to TV.

This time the signal from PS3 was transfered to PC and I can see PS3's XMB in my laptop.

However, it says the signal is protected, and off course can not be recorded.

 

 

Then, I switched to component cables to connect PS3 with Roxio device, and a HDMI goes from Roxioto TV. This time only the sound signal transfered to my PC. There's no pictures. So I thought my component cable is bad.

 

Today I bought a new component cable, and things don't change.

 

Is my Roxio device broken?

Make sure you change the settings in your PS3 to Component/D-Terminal when using the component cable!

I know this.

Let assume that you were using HDMI, now you have the Roxio Hd pro and you want to record a PS3 footage.

First you turn off the PS3, then plug component cable from PS3 --> Roxio.

Then connect the HDMI cable from Roxio device --> TV/monitor. This is my case so I don't use component cable to output signal from Roxio device to TV, so I don't need to switch the setting to composite cable.

Wrong!!!!!!! The PS3 has 2 OUTPUTS hdmi & component. You are using the Component output to the Roxio unit so the PS3 has to be set to that OUTPUT. As shown in post #19 . Look at this video again http://www.youtube.com/embed/eXy1G_7XBgo?&hl=nb_NO&fs=1&autoplay=1

 

As already stated the PS3 only works with a Component cable as the HDMI cable has HDCP protection that the Roxio detects.

After recording several gameplay footages, I recognize that the file size is always too big. Almost 8GB for max quality setting for 60 minutes.

If there's an option let user choose the video codec, it'll be better.

No! and it would be a mistake.

 

Use the output of the Editor to do that or a 3rd party converter.

 

Also, my testing indicated it would be 6.58 GB at 15,000 kbps for 1 hour???
