So I want to record the things on my XboX and PC tower. I have the roxio software and such on my laptop. Both the XboX and the PC Tower plug in via HDMI so when I want to record one or the other I just have to replace the HDMI cable on the input of the roxio (basic setup).
I'm on a 21" monitor and it's a black border around the outside of the picture about 1 inch thick all around. I never have this problem with my xbox and roxio which is plugged into the same monitor nor with my Tower when it's plugged directly into the monitor without the roxio device.
Laptop = Used to Capture
Monitor, XboX, PC = Has Footage I want to Record
