  1. If you look at Jim's image, you need to have a BDMV folder (not file), and inside that folder there should be more folders, as listed below:

     

    AUXDATA

    BACKUP

    BDJO

    CLIPINF

    JAR

    META

    PLAYLIST

    STREAM

     

    Inside the STREAM folder, should be .m2ts files, which are the actual movie files.

     

    Does your BDMV folder contain the folders listed above? And does the STREAM folder contain .m2ts files?


  2. Rob D., I had an AVCHD project I was working on once that also bombed out when encoding the menu while creating the .ISO file. I found that if I changed my project to be a BR project, and encoded that to a Folder set, it worked fine. The difference between an AVCHD project, and a BR project, is that there are some extra folders in the BR project. So, I deleted the extra folders, wrote the folder set to DVD, and it played fine in a BR player.

     

    Not sure if that will help you or not, I hope it does.


  3. So, you connected an output from your old TV, and that worked okay? No extraneous noises in the capture? Then you've pretty well proven that the capture device is good, and that the problem is with your VCR. And that would make sense that the sounds you're getting occur in different spots on the tape if you rewind. It's not the tape, it sounds like it's the VCR.


  4. Okay... no, that cable as an example won't do what you want. That particular cable appears to only use the USB connection to provide power for the video signal, not taking a video signal in through the USB port.

     

    But, if we go back to Jim's post above, he says that all of the devices he's tried have the same type of delay between the signal and when it displays on the screen. I know even the Roxio VHS to DVD device has a couple second delay. I think you will have a very hard time finding anything without that delay, because you can't simply send an HDMI signal into USB, it has to be converted into a different format, and that conversion is very processor intensive and takes time. And then, once the signal comes in through the USB port, it has to be rerouted to the monitor.

     

    I'm not saying it can't be done. I just don't know what device might have that capability, sorry.


  5. The Game Capture HD has a pass-thru HDMI port, with no delay. But it DOES add HDCP copy protection to the signal.

     

    From the link you included, are you planning to use a phone or tablet to watch as you play your game? That's not what you're getting there. That cable is for taking a video signal FROM a smart phone or tablet and playing it on a TV or monitor with HDMI input. I don't think your phone or tablet will accept an input signal.

     

    Tell us exactly what you're trying to do there.


  6. Creator NXT 3 is also Win 10 compatible, and may have better features than Creator NXT 4 if you can find a copy of it.

     

    (It's not listed on the Win 10 compatible list now, but has been so listed, and if you search on Amazon, it's still available, and listed as Win 10 compatible. No guarantees that any recent MS updates won't have broken something, and obviously, being an old version, Corel/Roxio won't be fixing anything in NXT 3.)


  7. It sort of looks like a .NET issue. There's another thread here (link) that guided someone else through manually installing the .NET framework, and then downloading the Game Capture HD Pro SP2 software. See if anything there helps.

     

    The SP2 download is a full installer, and should work with your existing key. But you may need to manually install the .NET framework first. Let us know if anything from that helps.


  8. Creator NXT4 is listed as Win 10 compatible. Someone also had another screen shot from Corel/Roxio's site showing Creator NXT 3 as Win 10 compatible.

     

    If you do much video work, it's a fair warning that the version of MyDVD that comes with NXT 4 is vastly INferior to what came with previous versions.

     

    Now, not listed as Win 10 compatible is Creator 2012, which a number of people have said is running fine on their Win 10 systems. I am among that crowd.

  9. I'm installing straight from the disc.

     

    Okay, so in post #4, with the link to instructions to first copy everything from the disc to your hard drive, and then installing from the files on the hard drive, which you said you did several times... did you do that? Were there any errors when you were copying files to the hard drive? And did you actually then install from the files on the hard drive?


  10. So if I understood the problem correctly the cameras .avi output format is the problem here?

     

    No... that wouldn't be the problem at all. The camera may capture to .AVI files, but if you're streaming, then the internal file format is completely irrelevant because you're going to be looking at the output signal, either HDMI, or Component (RGB), which is an electrical signal, not a file format. So, you need to connect either an HDMI cable from your camera to the RGC HD Pro, or an RGB cable from your camera to the RGC HD Pro. Is that what you're doing?

     

    Or are you trying to copy the files from your camera to your computer first, and then expecting to do something to stream those? That won't work. You need to input a video signal into the hardware (RGC HD Pro) and then you can stream from that.

     

    As for capturing, you wouldn't use the RGC HD Pro for that, you would simply connect your camera to your computer, probably using a USB cable, and then copy the video files directly to your HD, and then edit those as desired. "Capturing" through the RGC HD Pro would involve conversions that you don't need to do.

     

    So, I think you need to clear up for us exactly what you're trying to do.


  11. The list of input/output formats that are shown for the RGC HD Pro specifications refers to the input/output video formats allowed by the video editor, not the formats that can be saved when recording.

     

    And so you're aware, the .MP4 format is only created after it first captures in .M2TS format, then it gets converted. And unfortunately, if there's an error during the conversion to .MP4, the .M2TS file is lost. So your best bet is to always capture in .M2TS format, and then manually do your conversion to another format afterwards.

     

    As for your reference to your camera, I assume you're only using that as a source device while your testing things, and not actually capturing from it?


  12. I was advised that this was the best way to transfer my already digital files recorded on a DVR to transfer them to a storage device i.e. a portable hard drive rather than use a disc each time as with a disc after 4.7 GB the file gets compressed & you lose quality. I wanted to have them on a hard drive to have as a back up & in the best quality picture.

     

    The best way IS to transfer your videos to a portable hard drive, but not by going through an Analog to Digital conversion first. Just copy directly from your DVR, assuming it will let you. My DVR allows me to attach an external HD by USB. So copying your programs directly to a HD is the proper way to do it, and avoid any conversion to standard definition.
