    Capute 1 Second.....

    I had this when I was trying to capture PS4 footage. setting the quality to 10,000 kbps didn't work at first. I undid my overclock, then it suddenly worked. I re-did my overclock and it kept working for most of it.

    My Tv Won't Display 720P

    I don't know if you've managed to fix your issues by now with PS3 capture over Component. I have posted this before, but I will do it again just in case: SETUP OF CABLES Step 1: Check that you have a PS3 component cable. This cable contains 1 PlayStation plug, and 5 analog plugs, generally in the colors: RED, BLUE, GREEN for video, WHITE, RED for Audio. Step 2: Just to be on the safe side, make sure that you did not mix up the red analog plugs and that all plugs are plugged in and secured firmly into your GameCap HD Pro. Step 3: Connect a male-male component and audio cable from your GameCap HD Pro to your TV's component input *Note: I noticed recently that the audio in and audio out on the gamecap pro are not mirrored! Make sure that with your audio cables, white mirrors red and red mirrors with white to make sure that your stereo mix isn't switched around! (If this confuses you, I mean to say: make sure that all plugs are in the right color plug.) Make sure your GCP HD is plugged in and correctly installed on your computer with the latest updates. the led light on the capture device should light up purple, not red. SETUP OF PLAYSTATION 3 SYSTEM Step 1: After turning your PS3 on, go to system settings, then display settings. Step 2: Select output method and set it to Component. in the resolution selection, the most basic resolution is not unselectable. Apart from this, ONLY check 720p, then continue. If this displays the correct image then you should be good to go. Step 3: Load up the capture software provided with your card, if needed set the input to Component, and check the options to make sure that 720p mode is selected. Setting the resolution higher really isn't that useful. Most PS3 games don't go past 720p, with the exception of some titles. Sometimes, a game's box claims it's 1080p, but this isn't always true. Besides, when your system's resolution is 1080i or 1080p, switching to a game that has 720p resolution might reset the capture resolution to 480p. So again, setting the video output to 720p may look worse, but for games and capturing the footage, this is your best bet. A word of advise: Make sure you always load up the game first, then check the capture resolution before you start playing and recording. Do note that footage captured over component may look bland. To get the best results, I found these settings worked best for me: Brightness: 125 Hue: 128 (default) Contrast: 240 Saturation: 255 These settings generally work best when you set the game's gamma/brightness adjustment (back) to default. Another tip: As someone said earlier, there is a vast difference between hdmi and component and their quality. As component is analog, you may see translucent artefacts in your footage. HDMI is a lot clearer. To capture PS3 footage over HDMI, you will need to evade HDCP. You can do this with either of the 2 options: a HDMI splitter, or the Monoprice DVI-D/Toslink to HDMI converter. The latter is more expensive, but is proven to work with all HDMI capable consoles. With the monoprice you need to keep the following in mind: It only comes with a US power supply. For best results for people outside the US, you should use a travel power converter. You will need the following cables: 1 HDMI to DVI-D cable, 1 toslink (or optical male-male) cable, 1 HDMI cable to run from the monoprice to the GCP, then 1 more HDMI cable to go from GCP to your TV. You will also need to set your audio output to "optical" and disable all optional output methods. linear PCM is best for this. If you wish to use a different sound source (like analog), you can set "multiple audio output" on from the PS3 settings menu. However, a fair warning, the Roxio GCHDP has difficulty with transitions in games between loadscreens, cutscenes and gameplay while capturing over hdmi. There is no 100% fix for this issue. Monitoring your capture on a separate screen and stop the capture every now and then. I am not responsible for purchases made by you based on my advice. What worked for me might not work for you. I will also not be held responsible for abuse of the HDCP evasion by others.

    Anyone Else Having Trouble With Component Cables?

    I had to adjust the contrast by a little with some games, but this could have been because of gamma settings previously made in said games. overall these settings prooved best for me. Then again, I now use a HDCP work-around for the PS3 (monoprice sells DVI-D + Toslink to HDMI converters, great stuff) , and I replaced my roxio a couple of months back with another brands' card.

    Ps4 Records Only 480P And Glitchy Video

    One thing I found out, with the PS4's recent software update which allows HDCP to be disabled, a direct connection of the PS4 to the RGC will let the resolution only go up to 1080i, not 1080p! Personally I am using the Monoprice DVI-D to HDMI converter for 1080p, but I do have my share of problems. If you do not use the work-around method, I suggest first connecting your PS4 to your TV directly and setting the resolution to 1080i, then, while the PS4 is on, connect it to the RGC and see if your problem persists. good luck!

    Anyone Else Having Trouble With Component Cables?

    My preferred settings for component are: Brightness: 125 Hue: 128 (default) Contrast: 240 Saturation: 255 If you wonder how that works out, here you can find some of my most recent games captured: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLzWPGrdS2M&feature=share&list=PL54W7FDh6yw7FpOtDBRFJOFWoaikr-LuN

    My Tv Won't Display 720P

    It seems you are still having some issues that have not been resolved. I don't own the same TV so I will help you in any other way I can, if my solutions did not work out for you, then I ask you to refer to your TV's manual for further support. SETUP OF CABLES Step 1: Check that you have a PS3 component cable. This cable contains 1 PlayStation plug, and 5 analog plugs, generally in the colors: RED, BLUE, GREEN for video, WHITE, RED for Audio. Step 2: Just to be on the safe side, make sure that you did not mix up the red analog plugs and that all plugs are plugged in and secured firmly into your GameCap HD Pro. Step 3: Connect a male-male component and audio cable from your GameCap HD Pro to your TV's component input *Note: I noticed recently that the audio in and audio out on the gamecap pro are not mirrored! Make sure that with your audio cables, white mirrors red and red mirrors with white to make sure that your stereo mix isn't switched around! Make sure your GCP HD is plugged in and correctly installed on your computer with the latest updates. the led light on the capture device should light up purple, not red. SETUP OF PLAYSTATION 3 SYSTEM Step 1: After turning your PS3 on, go to system settings, then display settings.

If this displays the correct image then you should be good to go. Step 3: Load up the capture software provided with your card, if needed set the input to Component, and check the options to make sure that 720p mode is selected. I really hope this works. It's late where I am right now so I can't do much more at the moment, but if you need any further assistence I will see what I can do The GameCap Pro HD is not perfect, but it can be a nice piece of equipment once you work around it's flaws. Good luck!

    I Have Something To Say.

    Now there is something I can agree with.

    Tv Video/audio Output Problems

    Basically, if your TV does not have HDMI, you will need to purchase (or use if you already own it) a component cable for your xbox 360. As such, your setup should be as followed: Xbox 360 > component cable > Gamecap Pro HD > component cable > display. Also, your xbox will not provide video as long as it does not detect a TV. you will need to use either 2 hdmi or 2 component cables. Please also note that you can not go past 720p resolution with your current monitor. If you want to record in full HD 1080p, you will need to use the following setup (which your TV according to it's spec sheet can not use, so a new TV purchase would be needed for this!) XBOX > HDMI > Gamecap Pro HD > HDMI > TV (offtopic) you can use the setup: Console > component > Gamecap Pro HD > HDMI > TV

    Rocording One Long Video

    Does it record to a single file, or multiple? Make sure that you have unchecked the box "set recording length to" (or something similar), ths might help. Or are you referring to the file being split into parts when loading it into an editing program such as CyberLink PowerDirector? I recently had an issue with xbox 360 footage recorded through HDMI where my recorded material wouldn't load properly into the program. check this topic to find what I was experiencing and how I solved it.
  10. I decided to look up some freeware video converters and came across the Any Video Converter. Gave it a try and I must say, for a bit of freeware it did what several top of the line programs didn't. It's a work-around but it beats having to settle for a lower resolution I'll set topic as solved now
  11. The framerate of the halo videos are at 29.97fps. The raw video capture files play perfectly with any media player but editing gives problems somehow. I have 1 program yet to try, magix movie edit pro. I'll give it a shot and let you all know how that plays out...
  12. Seems nobody really knows how to fix this. Well, I hate to be the one to say this... But I would be really happy if Roxio would offer more support for their crash-prone bundled video editing software. I, as well as other people paid good money to get the Gamecap Pro. When I pay €139.99 for a device (which excludes the needed cables), I expect something awesome. something that gets support when needed. Don't get me wrong. My captured videos of PS3 games has given me no problems at all. But since xbox 360 doesn't have HDCP and allows 1080p capture over HDMI, that is what I want. I've done almost anything on my side to fix the problem. My last option would be to purchase a component cable for my xbox, but I think it's preposterous that when a device offers HDMI support, the video output file makes it impossible to edit when there are cutscenes in the video. At the very least, Videowave should be able to handle a 6 minute video and offer correct A/V sync. I really would like a patch that allows me to choose whether or not a cutscene is also registered as a chapter marker in the output file. If need be I will upload the source and VideoWave exported video to YT so you can see what I mean.
  13. I'll give it a try, even though my overclock is stable. I don't have RAM issues and I'm not bothered by the slight loss in ram speed since my cpu gained over 1GHz performance boost. I doubt my OC settings have anything to do with the stability of the programs I've used. resetting my gpu settings (only changed the display setting for the capture software) would mean my video would once again glitch when capturing gameplay and cutscenes, so I'm not even going to try that. will update to let you know if it solved anything. EDIT Set my hardware back to stock, but no changes. software still behaves in the same way as described in my original post. Any other ideas?

    Wiiu Not Compatable With Hdmi Audio

    I set my WiiU to stereo and did a test recording, worked fine for me. Make sure your HDMI cable is plugged in correctly and if that doesn't work, replace either or both hdmi cables. a kink in the cable might cause loss of sound. Also, set the volume slider in the gamecap pro software all the way up before starting recording. Also, check your options. the sound recording input may be set to your microphone instead of the gamecap pro card. Good luck!

    Roxio Hd Pro Quality Problem.

    if you use the bundled videowave, when exporting set it to "same as source" (or something similar, my software is in dutch =_=") this generally works best, unless your video is over 1 hour long... for some reason, anything past 1 hour in this setting ends up with the wrong resolution and aspect ratio. at least, that's what happened with me.
