  1. Thanks Ozzy. I'm going to try both solutions. Much appreciated!
  2. Thanks for not giving up! I really appreciate it. You can view the power consumption of each device plugged into the USB port in the Power tab of the Hub properties. This information comes from the device and is not calculated by the computer. As a result, this is sometimes inaccurate or an estimate by the designer, but at least it's an indicator. Thanks for the suggestion, cdanteek. It's unchecked (on all of them). To make 100% sure it's not a power issue, the Roxio is on a USB 3.0 port since (900mA) and the same problem happened on it as well. The only thing I can think of is that there might be something wrong with the HDMI input signal from Xbox to Roxio or from Roxio to monitor. That's hard to test without moving the entire setup to the downstairs TV, but the Xbox was plugged into the monitor for ages and it always worked just fine. So I'm thinking either the Roxio is not giving out the input signal correctly or the monitor is not picking it up. Actually, the latter can't be it, as I don't get a signal in the software either. As you forums vets never heard of this problem before, I'm thinking of returning it and getting a new one.
  3. Luckily that's not the case here. The Roxio requires 200 mA and had an entire 500mA port for itself. Other devices like USB powered hard drives or a USB powered DVD burner worked just fine. The Roxio only doesn't work in that USB port but all other devices work just fine with it. When you have eliminated the impossible - whatever remains - however improbable, must be the truth
  4. It seems the Roxio doesn't like the USB port I had it assigned to. I plugged into another port and it seems to be working fine now. I suspected that there might be something wrong with the USB port, but every other device seems to work just fine, only the Roxio doesn't work with it. Very strange. I tried disabling the USB suspend setting, reinstalling drivers (USB and Roxio) and a BIOS updated.
  5. Thanks for your suggestion! After I read your posting, I wanted to re-create the problem to check if it might be the USB settings in the Power Option and restarted my computer; of course this time it worked right away. Which could indicate that it is in fact related to timer setting. I'm going to check it out a bit later.
  6. That's a bit of a conversation stopper, don't you think? The Roxio plugged into my computer is not functioning as intended. Naturally I'm going to the product forums for Roxio, instead of the product forums for my laptop, as all devices I use with the laptop work just fine. This includes a Hauppage HD PVR. So I'm still looking for a clever person who might know what causes the problem. Thanks in advance for all helpful replies!
  7. Hi Jim, Thanks for your reply. What gave you the impression my computer would be a desktop? Just to clarify, I get beyond No Signal on the laptop - but after a reboot, I always have to unplug the Roxio and plug it back in first for it to work. Afterwards it just works fine, but I can't just fire up the Xbox and play anymore, which is quite annoying. There is always some fiddling around necessary for it to work. About the desktop: I can't test the Roxio on another computer at the moment.
  8. I'm having a very annoying problem with the device. It's hooked up to my Xbox and my monitor/TV via HDMI and the recording device is a laptop with the following specifications: Intel® Core™ i5-2450M CPU @ 2.50GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.5GHz 6144MB RAM Windows 8 NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M If I turn on my Xbox I always have to unplug the device and plug it back in first, before I get a picture on the monitor/TV and the capture software doesn't recognise that the Xbox is turned on as well. It just says "No Signal." I looked around the forum, but most threads with similar topics are dead ends or don't cover my problem. Thanks for the help in advance!

    Blank Preview Screen Win 8

    Not on a laptop. I guess that is where the problem lies. When I use the software on the monitor that is plugged into the HDMI (which is the NVIDIA adapter) it works fine, but when I use it on the laptop screen (which is the integrated graphics adapter), it switches to the integrated graphics by default.

    Blank Preview Screen Win 8

    Here is how I fixed it: 1) Go to the install location of the Roxio Game Capture HD PRO software and open the folder Media Import (C:\Program Files (x86)\Roxio Game Capture HD PRO\ Media Import in my case). 2) Right click on the MediaCaptureGame1X application. 3) Choose Run with Graphics processor > Change default graphics processor... 4) Click on Add 5) Find the MediaCaptureGame1X application (C:\Program Files (x86)\Roxio Game Capture HD PRO\Media Import) and click Open 6) Under 2. Select the preferred graphics processor for this program: select High-performance NVIDIA Processor and click on Apply Hope that works for you. Long version: This guy: http://forums.suppor...en/#entry429123 got me on the right track. Thanks for that. If you are on Windows 8 and you have the Blank/Purple Screen problem, check with what graphic accelerator the actual capturing software runs. The name of the software should be MediaCaptureGame1X.exe located in this directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Roxio Game Capture HD PRO\Media Import By default it ran on the Integrated graphics device on my computer, but when I started it with the (in my case) so called High-performance NVIDIA Processor, the preview screen works just fine again. What you want to do is to make the High-performance NVIDIA Processor the default device for running the MediaCaptureGame1X.exe. This way, you can open the program still via the launcher shortcut on the desktop and it should still work.

    Blank Preview Screen Win 8

    I set up the Game Capture to record from my Xbox 360 via HDMI. I made a successful test capture and everything worked quite well. After a Check Bandwith Test in the Live Stream Options, the software froze and crashed. Now the preview video stays blank and I noticed that I have duplicated Input entries (see screenshot below). I tried reinstalling/repairing of the software, playing around with the input resolution (respectively on the Xbox360 as well), rebooting and so on, but nothing seems to work. I can capture just fine and also hear the preview sound; only the preview picture is missing. In cases like this I usually fall back on a clean software installation, but even though I deleted all obvious folders that could contain settings for the software, it doesn't seem to work. The software reinstalls with the same settings. Now I'm here hoping for friendly help Thanks in advance!
