SET UP - I am using the capture card for a slightly different purpose. I am trying to capture and record a security camera and stream the results. I have a separate monitor to view said security channels, and another that feeds into my computer. I have an HDMI cable coming from my security system feeding into the HDMI input on the capture card. I have the PC output going into the usb on my computer. Then I have a VGA output from the computer to the computer monitor. Then I have the HDMI output heading into my second monitor so I can monitor just the cameras on that screen.
PROBLEM - I have moved the inputs and outputs to every logical reconfiguration and I have never been able to get the separate monitor to show anything. The most success I have had is getting the channels to show up on the computer capture software, but the channels are being displayed in no numerical order. Channel 1, 7, 17, 4 are coming through, but only 1, 2, 3, 4 have cameras running. So my conclusion is that for some reason the card is losing input data and displaying random output on the computer monitor. Again nothing I have done has been able to show the security channels on the separate monitor.
I have set this up and have used the same setup with gaming and I have had no problems with the split screen nor capturing my gameplay. I am using the exact same cables and connections, but nothing seems to work. I have tried everything I can possibly think of.
Has anyone ever tried using the roxio to capture and stream security systems before? Does the channel output confuse the inputs even tho I am using HDMI on both input and output? Can someone give me a hug? My brain hurts
