Xbox Connector On Tv Out?

Question

I didn't buy the Game Capture yet because I want to know if it's going to work with my home setup.

 

I use the TV output on the Xbox connector with the component cables for my HD CRT television. Not sure if anyone can help, but in the videos section on the roxio site, they said that the Xbox Connector need to be on HDTV and it dosen't work when the connector is on HDTV for my HD CRT television.

 

Will it still work or I will have to use the Yellow-White-Red cable on my TV and component for capture?

 

Thanks

Hi,BenYeah

 

The scheme in your house is that?

 

X360 output video component => Component input TV CRT? 480i/p or 720p or 1080i/p??

 

If so, just buy RGC. It will operate normally. The ROXIO talks "HDTV" because the standard today's HDMI/component video and CRT TVs normally do not.

 

The only recommendation is TV have components 480p input. That's it.

thanks for the quick reply!

 

I'm not sure about the 480i/p or 720p or 1080i/p...I think it's 480i but I have to check.

My scheme look like this: Xbox Connector set to TV output --> Component Cables --> Green-Blue-Red TV input.

 

"The only recommendation is TV have components 480p input. That's it."

 

So if I have the input for component on my TV (Green-Blue-Red input) I should be ok or it has to be 480p and not 480i?

 

Thanks again Claudio

Hi Ben,

 

What is model TV? Post here to check.

 

I have a CRT TV with component 480i, my AVERTV HD working normal (RCA splitter).

 

But it only captures in 480i.

 

So I asked for information about in another topic, because as I already pre-order and want start doing tests with other programs.

 

In theory will work because have "pass throug" function.

Update: I got some support from Roxio. Here's the anwser.

 

"Ben, you can try capturing the video in your Television.

The 'Roxio Game Capture Device' is exclusively designed to support HD TV and PC."

 

So I guess I need to save to buy an HDTV! 8)

 

I'll continue checking for an alternative in the setup, but it I think if you need to use the TV output on your xbox connector to play games the Roxio Game Capture won't work.

It´s not true.

 

Video component is ANALOG input, not Digital (google it).

 

It will work.

 

Think about, if it supports 1080i 9input), it supports 480i because it also supports 480i in component video up to 1080p

 

But record will 480i only..it´s a problem. No 59,94 fps. 29,970 interlaced only.

If your TV is hooked up with Component cables then you should already be seeing an HD picture.

And if you are using them then I don't see a problem.

The Capture device goes between your XBox and the TV.

So what you see on your PC is independent of what you're going to see on the TV.

If you're using the Component cables already then the switch on the dongle from the XBox should be on HD.If not then there's some issue you already have.The only time it should be on Standard is if you use the Composite part of the cable (Red,.White and Yellow).

 

In the Video section of the settings for the XBox are you sure you're correctly set up?

It should basically be the same as a menu for Tv's.It shows what resolutions your TV can and cannot display.

The above statements are wrong.

 

Component cables are analog cables that can output non HD signals in 480i. You can not have the switch set to HD when outputting to an SDTV in that resolution.

 

The Roxio device should still work and capture in 480i on the non HD setting on your cables, as it clearly displays 480i as an option in the menu. I've checked this in the software tonight to confirm.

That is very true but the OP said their TV is HD and they can't set the switch on the XBox adapter to HD and see a picture.

So I would say that the TV is not really HD and that is the reason they have to have it set to SD,which would output the 480i pic that they would then be able to see.

Even though they are using the Component cable they are really only viewing the 480i SD picture.

Yeah, that could be.

 

Early CRT HD TVs would say they are "HDTV" if they only support 480p. However 480p isn't technically an HD resolution, so the 360 doesn't consider it one.

 

If you keep it on the SDTV selector on the switch, the system can still output 480p, which I would bet is what he is doing.

 

To the OP, when you go into your system settings on the 360 and choose your TVs resolution, what options are you given?

I recently bought a Roxio game capture card and I have one problem. The problem is, I correctly hook up all the colours but my 'Sharp' HD TV doesn't have green, blue and red component connections on it, All it has is red, white and yellow which are the standard ones so i don't know how to finish the set up.

 

Help would be great, Thanks
