Roxio Game Cap VS Roxop Gamecap HD pro

Question

So I purchased a Roxio Game Cap HD PRO and am returning it becayse of the 2-3 second delay rendering it essentially useless for live stream.

It also shipped out with a faulty USB cable just lime the older Roxio Game Capture did which is extremely frustrating.

The thing I dont understand is why does the original Roxio Game Capture that is capable of 1080p have ZERO delay

(Like its so non existent that it probably has the least amount of delay even when compared to 2018 200$ capture cards LOL)

But then the "better" roxio capture HD PRO has a horrible 2-3 second delay?

From what I see the only real difference is you can use an HDMI cable on the pro with the trade of being the massive delay.

I honestly love my RGC but the RGC HD PRO feels like more of a downgrade than an upgrade.

Thoughts?

It all has to do with whatever computer you are using, I believe.

Can't fix the delay. It was designed to Capture not to capture and use as a monitor to play the game with...

That said most users find a couple of easy ways around that!

Sounds like you are using your monitor to both play and capture at the same time. Two ways around it. IF you have a game/computer monitor use the Pass Through on the captue device and record using the Hot Keys. Defaults are Start Capture, F6 and Stop is F7. ~ there are others for pre-roll and add flags. Look them up under Tools, Options.

The Hot Key method also works on laptops. Bring up your game then start Roxio. Start your game and use the Hot Key to start capture with Roxio. If the same Hot Key is used in your game, just manually start Roxio capture and use the Tab key to give your Game window the focus.

Try it out and let us know how you make out of if you have problems ;)
