Recording N64 With Roxio

Question

Hello, I have the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro and I wanted to try and record the N64 without buying a PVR. And so far I got it working, even the audio is fine. But the only problem is that the screen in the capture software is black and white. On the TV is color? Can someone help me figure this out?

That was Easy!

 

You are using Composite for your video input!

 

The RGC requires only Component or HDMI to work!

 

I find it amazing that you even got it to work to that extent :lol:

 

IF you really want to do this... you are going to have to buy a Composite-Component Converter. These are under $50 and there are quite a few to pick from.

 

Keep in mind that you will only have SD quality and probably end up with a 4:3 picture in a 16:9 capture... you can tinker with that part right now - even in BW, you can still get an idea what the output will look like ;)

Hey do you think this would work?

 

(TV) > (HDMI) > [Roxio] < (HDMI To Composite) < (RCA Coupler) < (N64 Composite Cable)

 

Here is an example that I made in Paint:

I don't like the word "coupler"...

 

It has to be a Converter and that means something that requires POWER!

 

It is impossible to change a Composite signal to Digital signal without electronics and electronics need Power ;)

 

Maybe that is what you meant and in that case, it should do just what you intend.

Just wondering if you managed to get this working, Predator, and if you did can you let me know the set up/equipment you ended up using? Would be fun to capture some N64 :)
