Okay, these problems have been going on since I got this new computer. I'd upload screenshots but I have no idea where to do so that is still free and doesn't require an account. I have reinstalled and repaired the program numerous times after looking at some of the topics on the forum and yet it still does not change anything. What happens is when I attempt to run the Roxio through a component cable to my PS3 the device says ready and the buttons are lit up yet there is no preview video or audio. Pressing any of the colored buttons causes it to freeze and crash.
The PC problem might be a simpler issue. I can only seem to get footage of the raw desktop and none of the games I try to run. I am connecting the Roxio to my PC via a HDMI cable. Also, I do have it set up so that my TV monitor is the computer screen; also using an HDMI cable. Yet this shouldn't be an issue if they are both coming from the same place; Xsplit does the same thing and it gets footage easily enough. There is no audio from the games either (even though I hear it on the desktop); is it because I am running the games in fullscreen? Then shouldn't it record the whole screen? I will try one of the games in windowed mode to see if it may be that but I don't think it is. This time the device does record, it just records the desktop despite me playing games while it is recording. I played a game and tested it out a few seconds ago and it just shows the desktop, the game's icon running in the taskbar, with none of the game audio.
