Roxio Game Capture Hd Pro Vga/dmi Help!

Question

Wassup, I'm new on here so I apologize if I don't present myself accordingly. Anyways, I recently purchased a Roxio Game Capture HD PRO, and it has arrived and have it at hand. I wanna set it up so I can begin recording gameplay and hopefully begin streaming on my Twitch.Tv account soon, but I have a problem. I have an XBOX 360 Elite hooked up to a desktop monitor that I don't use anymore, through the VGA cable that Microsoft sells to be able to connect the console to the monitor. The monitor is a "Dell E228WFP 22-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor," (http://www.amazon.co...s=dell e228wfpc)

 

And like I've stated before it has a VGI connector in the back, as well as a DVI port. Now here is where the problem is, the RGC HD PRO only accepts component and HDMI source, my monitor again is VGA and DVI, and I've been trying to experiment with this setup, and I was hoping if someone can please verify (if you've tried or had similar thinking) that this may work before i make a purchase for the necessary wiring. Would the RGC HD Pro allow me to capture gameplay/stream using an XBOX Component cable for the video input ports, and to use a Component to VGA cable (http://www.amazon.co...TKZR2NB32DGGQ85)

for a video output source to be able to play on my monitor? And incase of sound, I have one of those Red and White to 3.5 female jack cable that comes with the Turtle Beach X12's (http://www.amazon.co...to female 3.5mm) to get sound. Will this setup work?

 

Again the setup will have XBOX Component --> RGC HD PRO (video n audio in) -->Component to VGA cable to monitor + rca red and white to female jack (it gets plugged in before the audio from the Component to VGA) If this does work, and someone can verify for me, what cables do you recommend i get in order to still have good quality on my monitor? If there is a similar setup using HDMI cables too plz let me know. Thanks

I don't think your component to VGA will work! Notice that there are No Comments about it...

 

Farther, your Xbox should use an HDMI to the RGC, which in turn will only support HDMI out!

 

It is possible to use HDMI Out and connect a DVI-D but while mine worked first try, many other users have had problems with that adapter...

 

Maybe you could use the old monitor hooked up to your PC and to run the software on? That would free up the other to use with HDMI??

The only HDMI capable screen that I have is my home TV, which I could use from time to time, but if I want to stream close to every night will require me to kick everyone out of the living room to do so XD. Any other setup options do you have for me to still use my VGA/DVI-D monitor. Because I've heard something similar to what you recommend about the HDMI out and DVI-D link up, but people have said that it doesn't get audio, and it's going to be pretty tough to play games like call of duty with no audio :(. If you have any other suggestions you have then please let me know. As of now I think I have to buy an ASUS or BenQ monitor, or atleast one that supports HDMI for me to fully be using my Roxio with no problems, correct?

ChimpChomp, wassup? Dude, if you can't afford to get a HDMI monitor yourself, have the rest of the folks, in your house, pitch in to get you one, to keep you the hell out of their space. :);)

Hahahaha :) ! I wish, all my siblings are in college, so majority of the money goes into their tuition, books, etc, plus I'm only 16. I guess it wouldn't hurt to explain my situation a little better, I play CoD competitively, and I wanted to start to record and stream just to brand myself to at least get known by top AM teams, not to toot my own horn, but I'm pretty good at the game, but it sucks to practice and not go anywhere with the skills you aquire, know what I mean? So the RGC HD Pro was my ticket to begin showing people what I'm capable of. ANd right now my family is in the midst of moving furniture out of the house and buying new stuff, so hopefully I can slip in a request for a HDMI monitor, thanks for your response tho :D

No, I don't. I concentrated on getting an education to be an engineer and succeeded.

 

I do wish you well though, on your endeavor to become a professional gamer. I would think that your first step would be getting the proper equipment to do so.

I meant that in general. And yeah getting the right equipment is a must, but it's gonna take time, thanks for your kind words :)

First thing you you want to TRY is the HDMI on your family TV... We want to know that it actually works...

 

The monitor idea is also good, but borrow one first, again to test before buy another computer product you don't need ;)

 

For Audio, isn't there a headset connection on every Xbox?

Yea the HDMI on the TV does work, I used it on my XBOX a few times before I went to the small monitor. Theres no dedicated audio port on the XBOX 360 as far as I'm concerned, I think the only way to get audio while connected to HDMI is by plugging in one of these (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004M5A3V0/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_2?pf_rd_p=1944687622&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B002P35JMO&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=000KJHQ9FJCR2AH18Q3Z) then I could get audio feed to my headphones. But do you really think that the component to VGA cable could really work? I'll try and ask someone I know if they may have a spare one before I make a purchase to see if it'll work, but please keep me posted if you have any further recommendations.

All right, I did try some things and have to conclude that you have painted yourself into a corner :lol:

 

The only resolution to be able to use VGA is to use an expensive converter. That is a lot of money and effort to produce a sub-quality viewing picture :huh:

 

For less than the cost of that you could get an HDMI Monitor (make sure it is HDCP Compliant) and your done!

Alright, will do. One more thing, if I was recording on my computer the RGC HD Pro video feed from my XBOX, how do I sync the gameplay and what I'm seeing on my capture software, there is always some 3-5 second delay going on and it's quite bothersome to me. How can I change it?

Thank you for all your help :D
