Question

Hello there. I am experiencing an issue with my Roxio GameCAP HD PRO. Let me describe my setup with cables and that: I have two monitors and two PC's. Yes, that's right, I am not going to stream gameplay from a console but from my gaming PC. I have a DVI Cable from my gaming monitor to my gaming PC the same thing between the streaming monitor and streaming/recording pc. The gamecapture is in the middle of the pc's, with the USB connected to the streaming PC, and two HDMI cables connected to my gaming pc and monitor. Input to Gaming PC and Output to Gaming monitor.

 

 

The trouble I am having is that basically, half the stuff I do on the gaming PC actually shows on my Gaming monitor. The other half of the programs I have open is shown in the little preview box in my Roxio software in the streaming PC. When I push my mouse to the very right on my gaming monitor, I control the mouse in the preview box, nowhere else. To make it clear: If I have my webbrowser(Google Chrome) up on my Gaming PC, I cannot see this in the preview box at the game capture software in my streaming pc. And programs that I can see in the preview box, Spotify for example, is not shown on my Gaming monitor. It does not work to click it up or anything, its like the computer is split in half. So what is the problem here? I have no idea. Please guys help me out here!

I don't quite understand your setup. Why do you have both a DVI cable going from your gaming PC to the monitor, and an HDMI cable going (I assume) from the gaming PC and the RGC HD Pro unit, and then on to the same monitor? If that's what you actually have, is there some chance that Windows is configured to "Extend these displays"? In which case, Windows thinks you have two separate monitors, and you'll get one thing on your monitor if viewing the DVI input, and another if you set it to view the HDMI input. And what you'll see on the RGC preview screen on the streaming PC will look like "half" of a two monitor system.

 

If that's what you have, go into the "Screen Resolution" settings on your gaming PC (right-click on the desktop, select "Screen Resolution") and change the button from "Extend these displays" to "Duplicate these displays". That'll get you back to the same thing on both the HDMI and DVI output.

 

Maybe that'll help? If not, we need a better schematic drawing, or some pictures of your setup.
