Does It Support 60Hz/ntsc Recording

Question

Does the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD support PAL as well as NTSC recording - so both 50hz and 60hz recording?

I am buying it in the UK if it matters (so if it supports both, or the US and UK versions are the same, then that answers my question).

 

I'd like to record my Xbox 360 gameplay which requires 60hz.

 

The same question was posted here: http://forums.support.roxio.com/topic/51831-60hz-support-recording-from-a-games-console/ but no answer. :(

 

Thanks

Well I am baffeled!

 

I looked through the 201B version and do not see anything mentioned... All other versions from Roxio have always supported PAL as well as NTSC but have always had a selection button...

 

I suspect it may be automatic, based on what it captures or what is loaded into it - although what could it decide if you load One PAL & One NTSC :lol:

 

I'll ask around, and in the meanwhile perhaps some of our PAL users will chime in and let us know... Also if you can, what about a mixed load?

Just bought Easy VHS to DVD in New Zealand. Connected the computer to the XBox 360 OK. Started HALO, which plays on a setting of PAL 60HZ. I can pick up the sound on the computer but Roxio had a message "No video signal". Went out of HALO and changed the XBox System Settings to 50Hz and the video of where I was in the XBox menus came through immediately to the computer which I could record. So, Easy VHS to DVD will record PAL 50Hz automatically. However, I can't play Halo with a setting of PAL 50Hz - it only plays with PAL 60Hz. Explored two options: changing Roxio or changing the XBox. With Roxio, I can't find any setting or option to change to pick up PAL 60Hz signals so I'm stuck there. With the XBox, I wondered if I could record gameplay on one setting (60Hz) then switch Xbox settings to something else, like NTSC, and replay the captured video as NTSC output...but the XBox 360 only lets me select PAL50, PAL60 or Hi Definition, not NTSC. So I'm stuck and really keen for someone to provide an answer on how to record PAL 50Hz Halo gameplay, preferably with Easy VHS to DVD, or with a different capture device if that is what it takes.

Thanks for the update! I have not received any answer but keep in mind it is a Holiday weekend for the USA... ;)

 

It would be like petting an octopus but I wonder if outputting from the XBox to the IN of a VCR or DVD Player, then capturing from the VCR/DVD Player Output would work?

 

Just don't get tangled in the wires :lol:
