Questions Before Purchase

Question

Hi All, Im looking at buying a Roxio Capture HD Pro, however have a few questions first,

 

Currently I have Sony 50w800b, PS4, xbone, samsung sound bar, TB xp4

 

1. Do I need to swtich the hdmi cable each time I want to change from PS4 to Xbone?

2. I run hdmi audio to the TV and to soundbar via arc and optical to px4 - How would the roxio pickup the audio if im using px4?

3. I know there is a 2 sec delay on the pc/laptop, however does the roxio introduce any input lag to the TV?

4. Is a laptop enough to power the roxio?

1. Yes, you have to have a cable going to the Roxio Game Capture device from whichever unit you're playing on, so you'll either have the PS4, or the XB One connected.

2. You'll need to change your PS4 settings to send audio through the HDMI cable if you want audio on your game captures/streams.

3. There is no lag going to the TV.

4. Depends on the laptop, but probably, yes. The bigger question is, does the laptop have the processing power required to support processing the video?

 

Hope that helps!

It should run it, but for 1080 capturing, it's on the hairy edge, or just below:

 

Minimum System Requirements:

  • Microsoft Windows® 8, 7, Vista™ SP2, XP (SP3 for 32 bit & SP2 for 64 bit), Intel® Core 2 Duo Processor 1.8 GHz or AMD Athlon x2 64 2.0 GHz, 2GB RAM
  • Dual Core 2.3 GHz above is recommended for 1080 30p/60i recording

Well you Should Worry :huh:

 

Why, it states Dual Core at 2.3ghz, This I7 is 2.2 at Quad Core with turbo of 3.1 GHz, which for me would give better performance then dual at 2.3

I think that it should work, if the video chip is up to snuff.

Work with FACTS not Wishful Hopes...

 

The I7 is a 2.2 GHz which is below the 2.3 required!!!!!!

 

Turbo boost is a joke played on the uninformed by the marketing department... It is not reliable and may cause crashes!

 

But you may get by with otherwise you'll just blame it on Roxio and whine to your friends in spite of all the warnings you got here...

Wow arent you rude!!!

 

The i7 2.2 would have more power than the dual at 2.3, its plain stupid to think it wouldnt. If the laptop doesnt play it, then il buy another.

So, to be fair, as far as what's stated by Roxio, the 2.3GHz is recommended for HD capture. Obviously, faster is better, but the 2.2GHz may work fine depending on how the system is tuned and what other applications may be competing for resources. And if you'd be capturing at lower rates, again, it should be fine.
