Hi there, I'd just like to ask for a bit of help here since I've been trying for weeks now to get my setup to work with the Roxio HD Pro, but with mixed results (which is very confusing... and frustrating).
So before I start, here are some of my computer specs:
Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 Processor, 2.0GHz, 2MB Cache.
1535 MB NVIDIA Geforce 9300M GS
Windows Experience Index: 3.7
So I finally got the roxio, installed the software, plugged the usb in and connected my cables. The setup is as follows:
Xbox360 Slim (250GB) -> Component/AV Cable -> Roxio -> Component cable -> TV
With the roxio unplugged, my TV displays games perfectly fine in 1080p. However when I load up the software for the roxio, the preview screen flickers blue, the "Signal" part shows "No Signal" then switches to "Ready" and then back again frequently. Despite the cables plugged into the roxio being Component, and the Component LED being lit up on the actual Roxio, the software on my laptop says HDMI and refuses to change. If I move the Capture quality slide bar, it will flicker from HDMI to Component, and will then usually crash.
Despite this, it HAS WORKED ON SOME OCCASIONS.
In some cases the software has loaded perfectly fine, with the signal on "ready" and the preview showing exactly what is on my TV. I have managed to record several gameplays this way. But it still persists in being inconsistent.
So I read a few similar cases on these very forums, and decided to repair my software after uninstalling the roxio driver. I followed this exact process:
Switch off firewall -> Plug in the roxio device -> Uninstall the roxio driver (in device manager) -> Remove the roxio device -> insert the installation disk -> Check for updates -> Repair the software.
This did not work and led me to completely uninstalling and reinstalling the software. I still get the same results.
So from this information is there anything that anybody can spot to see where I'm going wrong, and what I can do to get the roxio working?
As far as I am aware, my computer specs are adequate for the Roxio HD Pro, despite being on the lower end of the spectrum.
Also the HDMI port on my xbox is broken due to a faulty HDMI cable in the past, hence why I am using the Component cables. So HDMI is out of the question here.
The second component cable is new, the Component/AV connecting the Xbox to the Roxio is not. However the Component/AV Cable has worked perfectly on the 3 consoles I have tested it on.
Any ideas? Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks!
P.S. Would it be possible to use this setup;
Xbox 360 -> Component/AV cable -> Roxio -> HDMI cable -> TV ???? Just a thought.
