  1. I'm now thinking it could be a HDCP handshake problem? When just the hdmi cable is plugged into xbox and monitor it's fine but it seems perhaps with the converter the monitor is not accepting the handshake?
  2. ok no worries, thanks for the help so far!
  3. The capture card also pulled through. Perhaps could it be the component cable? I really don't want to have to dish out more cash for something that should work out of the box. Roxio game capture cards should come with an expenses warning!
  4. So here's an update! Have tried as suggested using the converter to a dvd player and it works fine. Also I've tried disconnecting the capture card and just connecting xbox through component to hdmi converter then hdmi to monitor and this gives a HD picture even when the xbox cable is switched to TV. It's cleary better quality than I was getting with the capture card connected. Could the card be the problem then?
  5. Ok i'll try this when I get home from work in about an hour or so.
  6. It's simply because the monitor I use for Xbox has no component inputs but has HDMI, VGA and DVI. The converter is this one... http://www.amazon.co...ils_o02_s00_i00
  7. Hi there. So my setup is as follows. I have from the Xbox to capture card connected with Xbox component cable and it is set to the HDTV setting on the cable. From the game capture card I'm connected through component cable to a HDMI converter and that is connected via HDMI to my monitor. When it's switched to HDTV on the Xbox cable I get a No Signal status in the capture software and just a blank screen both on pc and my Xbox monitor. The monitor doesn't detect the HDMI cable that's connected however as soon as i switch it to the TV setting the picture appears and I get a signal but with diminished quality and lots of input lag. Any suggestions? All cables are connected as they should be. I've double checked.
  8. Unfortunately this doesn't make a difference...
  9. Ok so here's an update... I've managed to get the colour normal [i did have the cables the wrong way and thought I hadn't] however on the capture software the capture video size isn't as wide as it perhaps should be. The "resolution" if I can call it that seems to be squashed. You can see what I mean in the 2nd screenshot I posted. The width doesn't fit to screen. I'm going to be investing in a component to hdmi converter soon so perhaps this will fix the issue but really it should be fine as connected?
  10. Anyone else have any ideas on this?
  11. Ah I see, this is an Xbox thread sorry!
  12. What are your Xbox HDTV settings set to?
