  1. I'm trying to record my pc with the Roxio Game Cap. Becuase my computer only has HDMI output, and I have a standard version, I have to use a HDMI to Component converter - (i bought http://www.amazon.com/Portta-PETHRV-Component-YPbPr-Converter/dp/B00J22LGYG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1440896032&sr=8-2&keywords=Hdmi+to+componentas my converter). Now with just recording PS3 gameplay without any converters, it works fine. But when using the converter and recording my PC, it doesn't work at all. It will say it finds a signal, and the screen will flicker on for a second, but then it will become distorted with lines, digital noise, and stopping play. It will say it is still recording though, but when I try to view the recording, it says "corrupted file". My cables are fully plugged in. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. I have 2 regular component to component cables and 1 PS3 component cable
  3. I can't go PC to RGC because I have the standard version -- the one that only has component support. That's why I bought the converter, because I used to record using FRAPS, but recently, it's been running so slow and recording so slow that I had to use hardware recording. The Roxio Game Cap (standard) says it supports PC capture on their website, and since I already had one from when I used to make PS3 gameplay, I figured that would work fine. Is there anything I can do? Really need this up and running.
  4. UPDATE: I ran another test and just directly hooked up my laptop to the screen. It works flawlessly. Then, plugging in the game cap, with now my PC going into the converter, and the converter going into my game cap, and the game cap going into my TV -- it works flawlessly. BUT, when I plug in the USB cable, and then check my game capturing software (the same result happens in the Roxio Game Capture software) the screen in the preview glitches out. I took a photo of what it looks like on my TV. (That camera isn't out of focus, I changed a setting on my TV and screwed up the focus somehow. I fixed it though.) http://postimg.org/image/5olj5qd3z/
  5. Okay so I checked this forum, and saw that you guys wanted to know if anything worked with the converter. I managed to get the only HDMI thing I wasn't using, my Apple TV. So I plugged in the hdmi cable into the converter, and then hooked up the component cables into my TV. I plugged in the power into the converter (I don't get why it needs power but okay...) and my TV flickers for a moment. Then finally, the picture comes up, as clear as a normal HDMI cable hookup. No color problems. No flickering. No errors. It worked. Which means either my Graphics Card doesn't support the converter, or the game cap doesn't support the converter... I'll look more into my GPU and see if it does have HDCP.
  6. Sometimes, when recording, the Roxio Game Capture program just freezes. Any attempt to click stop recording and the program fully crashes to the desktop. This appears to happen completely randomly. I found I seem to crash easier if I record for longer than about 20 minutes, my computer is hot, or if I'm using game audio as my line in (instead of my mic) My question is, how do I fix this? Here are my specs: Windows 7 Home Premium (Activated and Genuine) 3 GB's of RAM Intel Core 2 Duo (T8100 @ 2.10 GHz) Intel GMA 965 Made by Dell Is it my specs that are causing the problem? Or is it something else?

    Roxio Game Capture Not Installing

    Never mind. I got it. All you have to do is change the DEP settings for the install. It's working fine now.
  8. I bought the Roxio Game Capture and when I went to install the software, the disc wouldn't install the software. It would load up, ask me if I wanted to check for an update, and no-matter what I select, (yes or no) it will close. No error message, no "The program has stopped responding", nothing. Just randomly close. I think it may be my computer, because when I tried it on my brothers computer, the install worked fine, but we have the same specs, so I don't see why mine isn't working. Specs of my computer: OS: Windows 7 (32 bit) CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.10 GHz GPU: Intel GMA 965 BIOS: Ver 1.0 Ram: 3 GB'S of ram (but .03 GB's are unusable) Direct X: 11 Please help me. PS: I have my CD and CD code.
