    Roxio Shows In Device Manager, Hdmi Light On, No Signal

    That's a slight exaggeration. The only thing I have "argued" about is you guys telling me to turn my Windows updates off, certainly no reason to stop helping someone. There is an update to this issue. I've notice that when I click on the "Quality" slider, all of a sudden it shows a second of preview. But what's more interesting is that the Roxio hardware has the HDMI light on when I hook up the HDMI cable, but after a minute or so it switches over to "YPbPr", and then the software says I'm using "Component". I have tested my HDMI cable on two different other units and it works fine. I have also gotten another HDMI cable and this strange behavior continues. Anyone ever heard of this before? It seems to me that my Roxio hardware is faulty. Is there *any* way to contact Roxio without paying?
  2. I'm trying to start over fresh. I can't get this thing to work. Right now I've got the editing side working, but can't capture. All cables are set up correctly. I've tried repairs, following the instructions around here everywhere (disable from device manager, disable firewalls and AV, etc etc - -but I still don't know what "you'll have to re do the SP1.1 << what is that?). I've uninstalled and reinstalled. The Roxio HD Pro shows up in my Device Manager and my HDMI light on the unit is on. When I open up Capture, it says No Signal in red. The LIVE STREAM and START CAPTURE button therefore are dim and unclickable. I am at my wits end.

    Roxio Hd Gamecap Screen Has Weird Distorting Colours - Help?

    In the capture box (when I had capture working for a day...) I had that happening, and got it to stop by turning down the Quality setting two bumps (it's to the left of the preview window when you're getting ready to capture). The other thing I did was download Razer Game Booster, it turns off a lot of things running on your computer so it's dedicated to just capturing. Good luck!

    Preview Screen Now Has Lines

    But I thought you said you weren't using Roxio HD Pro? Perhaps it's something to do with the Roxio HD Pro unit and the specific software that comes with it.

    Does It Work When I Use Same Monitor For Computer & 360

    Sure, use the picture if it helps! But it appears you aren't following the conversation: I already have the cable. It's not working. However, it appears from several other threads in here (which I found after reading for hours and hours O.o) that the Roxio HD Pro does not carry a signal through an HDMI > DVI-D cable. So I have ordered an HDMI male to 2xFemale splitter and that should take care of it. That is, if I ever get the capture to work again... buggy, glitchy crap and the company I bought this from won't give me a refund.
  6. I am reading through every single thread in this forum to try and track down how to get this thing running for captures (my most recent prob w/ the Roxio - - it seems every fix brings on a new problem...) so I am trying the steps above again but I noticed something new this time: Can you please tell me what SP1.1 is?

    Black Screen Using Hdmi-Dvi

    That was a completely separate issue, see title of that thread. I've had this problem from the start.

    Preview Screen Now Has Lines

    After hours and hours and hours of searching for issues with buggy Roxio software, I have stumbled upon the solution to this (at least in my case). I had put my Windows theme to Basic, because that is supposed to give you more processing for the Roxio to actually work when rendering, but it appears you must have it set to Aero or the above screenshot and similar preview issues will occur. Switched back to Aero and my preview window seems fine. For now. Who knows what's next.

    Did you get it figured out? I'm having the exact same issue...

    Won't Render My Video, Sits At "make Movie" For Hours

    Uhhhh... you are suggesting that I leave my computer vulnerable because Roxio software conflicts with programs that keep my computer in tip top shape and are used widely by people everywhere to maintain their computers. I suggest Roxio create software that doesn't force me to leave my computer vulnerable. Quality products don't cause these types of problems and are user-friendly for the average consumer. I assume this is why Roxio no longer does customer support, but forces people to pay them or wait around for days hoping someone knows how to fix their issue. :/ If I had known what I know now, I never would have bought this product.

    Install Seemed Fine, Capture/edit Buttons Fail

    So after more edumacating of myself on the 'net, I've learned that the advice in the other thread here (can't find it now - - so many posts, so little time) was not accurate for my situation. Do not download Service Pack 3 if you have Windows 7. The latest Service Pack for Windows 7 comes with the software and is Service Pack 1. Service Pack 3 is the latest for Windows XP and maybe others. With this discovery, I now no longer know why the Capture and Edit buttons started working If I figure it out, I will do my best to come back and report it. I've updated the post above where I state that was the solution to my problem.

    Because I'm too ignorant to choose which updates apply to me There is nothing worse than having to search for days to find the solution to an issue that wouldn't have happened with good software... I find the updates make this not happen. Until now. With Roxio software...

    What happens when you hit these buttons? Did you get it figured out?

    Preview Screen Now Has Lines

    Hmm... so frustrated. It seems with each fix of a Roxio HD Pro issue, I am presented with new problems. The Roxio software has started crashing my system. I have repaired it and will test that out in a few moments, but meanwhile, the following issue has persisted after the repair: Now, in my preview screen, I get no color except the green and purple stripes that don't belong there. The following is supposed to be full color, but the editing previews look like this, as does the preview video while it's rendering. After it renders it looks fine (other than the loss of clarity that so many are unhappy with :/). Does anybody know why it's doing this? Signed, ExhaustedFromDealingWithRoxio :/ PS: I appreciate people taking the time to help with these issues!

    Why would I want to disable Windows Updates? It keeps my computer up to date with everything on the 'net as well as protecting my computer.
