Hdmi Setup With Roxio?

Question

Hi, I'm new here so bare with me....

 

I'm looking to split the hdmi output from my xbox via a splitter, then sending one lead to my monitor and the other to a hdmi--->component converter, thus enabling me to plug it into the Roxio.

 

I don't wish to spend my money to see if it works as I am limited for spare cash.

 

Any info regarding this and whether it would work is much appreciated,

 

Regards,

Should Be There

You can buy an HDMI 1x2 device and it should work.

We use them at work to split signals to 2 TV's all the time.

Does anyone know of the cost, if I were to do this?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

Google it.

I looked it up online and I think a non-powered hdmi splitter works with the xbox 360. Can anyone confirm this, or that this setup is going to work.

You posted in the Roxio Game Capture for Consoles yet your link is for Roxio PC game Capture ( http://www.roxio.com...re/default.html ) . Make sure you get the one you want.

 

 

Is this what you are trying to do:

I'm not familiar with that splitter but as long as the parts work then I'd say you're idea will also.

 

What you're trying to do is bypass the Component out to your TV.Also use the HDMI out from the XBox.

As long as your distances don't get too great you will probably be ok.

 

I can't and won't guarantee anything when it comes to conversions.

Also be careful when hooking things up to not hot plug and unplug HDMI cables.

It can cause issues,as much as burning out ports.

I've just brought the gamecap for my PS3, would like to run it thru the hdmi on my tv and save on some of the 100's of cables :mellow:

 

I'm from the UK also so if you do manage to get this to work with the hdmi spillter and the hdmi to component then let me know how it all work mate :)

 

Ideally thats exactly what I was thinking of doing myself so keep me/us posted or PM me, Cheers :)

So I've just brought a hdmi splitter and hdmi to component converter.

 

Unfortunately I am getting a 'no signal' on my tv when using the splitter, im wondering if I need a better quality splitter maybe?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

There is know way can can say that it is bad You could try it in a different configuration or have a friend or neighbor try it. Over the years I have tried "splitters" some work some don't, cheap ones and non-powered ones tend to not work.

Hopefully fellow user Should Be There will get back on here and report how he made out with his "splitter"

It was a non powered splitter which is where my problem is I think, I tried using the splitter from ps3, from tv and from my hdmi to component converter and no joy at all, looking into a powered splitter now, any help there would be appreciated :)

My parts haven't arrived yet, however I believe the ps3 has an encrypted 'hdcp' secure signal, (something like that). I don't think a non-powered hdmi splitter would work. I believe the xbox 360 doesn't have this problem, so in my case it should still work. Powered hdmi splitter's aren't too expensive, hope it works out for you bro!

 

Perhaps search that online for more info? :/

 

Hope I helped!

Just got most of my stuff, (except the hdmi splitter), connected it all to my laptop and it's pink and fuzzy? It also states that there is 'No Signal'. So even though there was no signal on your tv, did it still work on your computer Buzz? Any help is greatly appreciated :)

Thanks Vaughn Whiskey, i'll probably end up doing that.

 

Do you know if it's possible to do it the other way, as in hdmi in then component out to roxio.

 

Thanks again,

Ya i have the same brightness problem when i use splitters to avoid the bad passthrough on the roxio , The bad brightness only occurs when the green cable is unplugged from the output side of the roxio .

what?

the reason my capture is so bright is because my game brightness is at max because i was playing with settings.

The picture on my monitor is perfect, just the preview and recording of my roxio looks like this:

 

My link

make sure the cable for the xbox matches the settings in the roxio.

switch on TV via xbox 360 cable = 480i/576i

switch on HDTV via xbox 360 cable = 480p/576p/720p/1080i
