    Lg Flatron E2240T?

    Sound will come over the HDMI cable... but... you need to make sure your game console is sending audio. If you have headphones plugged in, it may mute the output to the TV/Monitor. I believe there should be a setting in the console so that you can tell it to send the audio out to the TV/Monitor even if you have the headphones plugged in, but I can't tell you what that setting might be.

    Lg Flatron E2240T?

    A splitter and a switch do opposite things. A splitter will take the signal from 1 source (like an Xbox or PS4, or...) and sends it to 2 devices (your Roxio Game Capture and a monitor, or two monitors...). So you need a splitter which will output to two devices at the same time. I've never heard of one that would only send to one device at a time, but you need one that will output to two devices, not just one. A switch takes two source signals and lets you decide which one goes to a monitor.

    Tracks Automatically Alphabetizing On Cds

    Yep... that would be the option I was thinking of! Thanks!

    Burn Multimal Files

    ...or are you trying to "batch convert" video files using Video Copy & Convert? Please let us know what part of the Creator NXT2 suite of applications you're running.

    Tracks Automatically Alphabetizing On Cds

    For an Audio CD, are you using Music Disc Creator? Or are you using the more simplified application from the main menu? In Music Disc Creator, you can manually set the order by dragging the files up and down into the order you want. It won't reorder them when it burns them. If you drag several audio files in at once, it may initially order them alphabetically, but again, if you reorder them, they'll burn in that order. For an MP3 CD, yes, that's normal behavior, because Windows orders the files (not tracks in this case) in alphabetical order. An MP3 CD is simply a Data CD with .MP3 files on it. To keep them in the order you want, you need to prefix the files so they'll stay in the order you want, usually with 2 or 3 numbers, as in: 01 track1.mp3 02 track2.mp3 03 track3.mp3 . . . 99 track99.mp3 Somewhere, there's an option to tell it that you want to keep a particular order, and in that case the program automatically prefixes the files with a numeric prefix. Hopefully that helps?

    Installation On My New Serface Pro

    There should be no problems copying the files onto a USB drive. What is the error you're getting? Is it a read error from the installer DVD? If so, then check for fingerprints or dust or scratches, and if it's something that can be cleaned off, do so carefully and try again. (Always wiping from the center to the outside edge of the disc, never circularly.) If there is still a problem reading the disc, see if you can borrow a friend's PC and see if a different drive has any better luck. (Though you indicate you tried different drives.) Again, let us know what the actual error is, and if it's an error reading the disc, then take it back where you bought it and get a new one. Let us know how you make out.

    Install Disk Cracked :(

    There is not. However, if you contact Rox_Ralf, he should be able to help you. Click on the link for getting your CD Key reset, in my signature, below, and follow the links/instructions there to send Rox_Ralf a personal message. Explain your situation, and he can help you out. The rest of us here are fellow users.

    Recording On The Pc?

    1. The lag is normal. That's the time it takes for the Capture device to encode the signal and send it to the PC. You can NOT play your game using the preview window, unless you can see the future and anticipate what's happening by the delay time. 2. When you normally play, do you have sound on your monitor/TV? Or are you playing using headphones? If you're using headphones, there's a good chance you're not sending audio out on the HDMI cable. The RGC device can only capture/record what it receives. If you're not sending it audio, it won't record it. You'll have to dig through your audio mixer settings and make sure you're sending audio out the HDMI cable. 3. The preview window is low resolution so it uses less processor time. Don't worry about the preview window so much as the final captured video. How does that look when you play it back?

    Roxio Hd Pro Wont Work

    Which video lagged? If on the preview screen, that's normal. That's the amount of time it takes for the Game Capture HD Pro to encode the video stream and send it to the PC. It's usually about 1.5 - 2 seconds. A faster PC won't change that. You can't play your game by watching the preview screen, that's only to be able to monitor the signal. You have to play using the "pass thru" signal on a different display.
  10. Taking a leap here, you've got a bootable ISO image of a Linux installer, so you really can't just move all the files onto the HD of the system you're using and then run that, because you need to actually boot from the image you have? The suggestions above, swapping in a DVD drive, using a portable USB DVD drive, or a thumb drive are probably your best bets. For the USB options, you'll have to go into the BIOS settings, and make sure it's configured to search the USB ports for a bootable drive. Then you should be able to do what you want from the USB drive.

    Can you give us the exact text of the message? A screen capture posted here would be good. (Instructions for posting a picture are in my signature below.)

    Videowave To Dvd

    Quickest and easiest thing to try is a different brand of DVD blank. What brand (Memorex/Verbatim/JVC/etc.) and type (DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-R/W, etc.) are you using? Also, have you tried different DVD players, and do they all play the disc the same way? Like I say, get a few different brands and types of blank disc, burn your project to them from your .ISO file, and see if that makes a difference. For the record, Memorex discs have historically not worked as well as those by Verbatim (preferably made in Japan) or discs by JVC/Taiyo-Yuden.
  13. That was a question for the original poster, in case they had an "Unknown Device" entry. It could point to a bad install.

    Local Network Streaming

    Zia, I think you will need your own streaming server on your network. Or, you'd have to capture your game play first, and then use something like VLC which apparently has capabilities to stream over a local network. I found that out by Googling, "stream on local network". Let Google be your friend. I don't think you can do what you want, live stream on a local network, without having a streaming server hooked up. And then I don't think the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro will talk to it. You'll need some other software in between. I'll gladly be proven wrong. Hopefully someone else will jump in here and add their thoughts. Here's another thread (link) talking about doing what you want, only they're using even different hardware too...

    Question About Bluray Plug In

    The other thing we don't know is if she was viewing the disc, on the various computers, or if she was watching the rendered video, which could display differently from the written disc. And in post #11, she says, "Mac and PC," which implies with little equivocation that she has both platforms available for viewing the final product. It's understood that Toast is strictly a Mac product.

    Question About Bluray Plug In

    Unless I'm mistaken, she's looking at the rendered video or disc, not the project.

    Old Vhs Tape Noise

    The micro cassette isn't necessary. You can simply feed the audio (red/white) output of your VCR into the line-in of your PC. You'll need a "Y" cable that goes from two RCA plugs to a stereo 1/8" (3.5mm) plug. The RCA plugs will go into the audio outputs of your VCR, and the stereo plug will go into the line-in of your PC. (Possibly a blue or red connector.) Then you can use Goldwave to record the sound onto your PC. If your PC comes up with a message that "you have plugged something into" an audio jack, hopefully it will come up with an option for you to tell it what you plugged in, and you need to tell it that you plugged a "line input" into it. Let us know how you make out.

    Question About Bluray Plug In

    If you look at your DVD disc in Windows Explorer, what files and folders does it show you? Expand the folders, then do a screen capture and save that to an image file, and post that here. Instructions for posting pictures can be found in the link in my signature, below. Also, what model is your Samsung TV?

    Recording On The Pc?

    Laptop - PC... same thing. Hopefully one of your monitors supports HDMI in? Or if not, hopefully you can output your gameplay on and HDMI output and on one of your monitor outputs. Connect a USB cable between your PC and the RGC HD Pro. If you have a monitor with an HDMI input, then you would connect an HDMI cable from your PC to the input of the RGC HD Pro, and then another HDMI cable from the output of the RGC HD Pro to your monitor. Then set things up so that you have the capture software on the screen not connected to the RGC HD Pro, and your game on the screen connected through the RGC HD Pro. Does that help?

    Question About Bluray Plug In

    Yes, but what parts of the video are cropped? Top/Bottom? Sides? The keys to the solution are in the details. And no, the BluRay plug-in will do nothing to affect your creation of a DVD. When you author in the different 4:3 or 16:9 formats, does it display as you expect on your Mac/PC? That is, if you author/create in 4:3, does that disc playback in 4:3 format with black bars on the sides? And if you author in 16:9, does that disc playback in 16:9 with black bars on top/bottom?
  21. d_deweywright

    Question About Bluray Plug In

    Are you using a set top DVD player, or a set top BluRay player? Does the DVD player have any options for HD output listed in the manual? If not, it can only output in SD, which should show up on your TV in letter-box (4:3) format. Of course, your TV may be trying to stretch the image to 16:9 format, which could result in cropping. How are you authoring your DVD, in 4:3 (SD) or 16:9 (HD) format? Are your source video files SD or HD format? The fact that your set top player is playing the disc indicates that it is probably authored correctly, but one or more of the playback devices (player or TV) is trying to automatically set the output to a format you don't want. Let us know more about your player and TV (make and model). For clarification, I am not a Toast user, so I won't be able to answer any specific questions about Toast, but it doesn't sound like Toast is necessarily the problem here.

    Frame Skipping When Capturing Old Vhs Tapes

    olicoolg, you've posted in a nearly three year old thread, regarding the Mac version of Easy VHS to DVD. Is that the product you have? You also haven't given us any information about your tapes, your system, or anything we can really work with. Please start a new thread, here, if this is the proper product, or else in the correct product forum, and let us know some more details about what you have. How old are your tapes? What are the specs of your system (processor, OS, etc.)? And what things (if any) have you tried beside "playing the tape and capturing." (Have you retensioned the tape?)
  23. d_deweywright

    Old Vhs Tape Noise

    If you could capture and post a few seconds of the audio here so we could hear it, that might help make some suggestions too. (You should be able to attach a .MP3 file. Use the link below in my signature about posting pictures if you have trouble figuring out how to attach a file.)

    102 Character Limit

    An alternative solution (if Brendon's solution still doesn't satisfy your needs) is to zip your files into a path/file that will fit within the limits of the filesystem (which you can't avoid), and then write the zip file to the CD/DVD. You can restore the full path/filename when you unzip the file.

    Video Preview Window Not Very Reponsive

    First question... if you look at your video after you capture it, how does it look? Do you see dropped frames, choppiness? If not, then don't worry about the preview screen. If the captured video isn't good, then tell us about your PC. Laptop or desktop? What processor? How fast? How much RAM? How much available disc space? What version of Windows? What video card/chipset?
