Blue Box When Xbox Is Set To 1080P

Question

I realize many other people get a blue box, but I ONLY get one when I set the xbox to 1080p. It seems to be a 4:3 sized blue box, with everything else being black.

 

Xbox component cables are in roxio's input, HDMI from roxio's output to the TV's HDMI input.

Har Har.

 

The center 50% of the screen or so is a pure RGB blue 4:3 box, everything around it is black.

 

Edit: And how to I set the topic to unsovled? Even if I click it on one post in the thread, the others still say solved, and if I go to hit them, the other ones get reset!

As a test, would you try hooking up a component cable from the Roxio output to your TV.

 

Thanks

You mean, reverse the inputs/outputs?

 

Or use an additional component cable as opposed to HDMI?

 

EDIT: AH, so that means "Click me to mark this as having solved the topic" not, "This post solved the topic".

Of course I don't mean reverse the inputs/output.

 

Just use a component cable from the Roxio capture card OUT to your TV.

I won't be able to do that till this weekend, don't have one with me.

 

I thought you meant reverse them because doing so improved image quality with the original game capture, for who knows what reason.

Both connections using component.

 

I keep forgetting to ask you....does it work ok if using the native 720p?.

 

Here is some interesting info (FYI) :

I'll test out 720 later today.

 

 

I hadn't noticed any input lag, though, maybe halo 4 is 1080 native? Is there a way to check?

 

The reason I play in 1080 is so the resolution will be higher in the recording, which is more noticable then during actual play.
