    Low Volume With Game Capture Hd Pro

    Well I dug a bit deeper and there's a volume slider in the software window directly below the live feed from your capture device. That volume slider apparently does control the output of the volume to the monitor/TV because I upped it to 100% and it was very loud again on my TV. I screen captured it below from the Roxio YouTube video because I'm not currently at home. Thanks for the help!

    Low Volume With Game Capture Hd Pro

    Jim, Yes when I took that screen capture, I was on the HDMI input for my computer that's also hooked up to the TV. Basically my setup is as follows: Samsung 55" LED TV HDMI 1 - Cable TV input HDMI 2 - Xbox 360 HDMI 3 - Home Server PC The Roxio is inbetween the 360 and HDMI 2 now. I also have the USB running from the Roxio to the same Home Server PC that is connected to HDMI 3. When I took that screenshot, I switched to HDMI 3 to verify the screenshot. Before I purchased the Roxio unit, when I was on HDMI 2 playing the 360, my volume was so loud that I could turn the TV down to 8-10 or so and it would be an acceptable volume. After purchasing the unit and hooking it up, I need the volume up to about 20 or so on HDMI 2 just to hear it. What would putting an HDMI splitter between the Xbox and Roxio device do? What would I be checking for? I guess my main question is, does the Roxio act itself as a splitter and does this in turn decrease the signal strength of the HDMI signal, therefore decreasing the volume? If that's the case, wouldn't a splitter decrease the volume even further? Again, I'm just asking because I don't know. I know that if you split coaxial cable, you're going to lose signal strength over distance. I don't know if that's the case with HDMI or not and furthermore, I don't know if the Roxio is even capable of causing that or if losing volume intensity is even a byproduct of "halving" the signal strength...

    Low Volume With Game Capture Hd Pro

    Sorry Jim, but that's not it. I probably should've specified. It's when I'm actually on the input that the 360 is connected to and playing live. Just to double check though I did look at my mixer settings and they're cranked across the board.
  4. I've noticed that when I run a direct HDMI line from my Xbox 360 to my TV, the volume is considerably louder than when I have it run through the Game Capture HD Pro. Does anybody else have this issue? Is this normal because it's splitting the HDMI feed? I appreciate any input.
