How To Play In Hd?


Arok Lazarus
 Share

Question

I'm sorry for asking so many questions but I really couldn't find any answer on this so far.

 

I know I can play in HD while the capture card records in 480p (at least I think that's possible right?) but how do I play in HD with component cords?

I do have an HD compatible Xbox 360 and an HDTV. I play in HD all the time when not recording using my HDMI cable. But since the Roxio uses component cables only how can I play in HD? Do I have to get the Xbox 360 component cords with the HD toggle on it? Or can I have an HDMI cable and a component cable plugged into my Xbox and running at the same time?

 

(On a similar note how would I do this on a PS3 as well?)

No problem Arok Lazarus, ask when you have questions.

 

Easy. Connect your COMPONENTE CABLE on X360, turn ON, go to setup and make correct signal output (COMPONENT 480p, 720p or 1080i). Turn OFF.

 

Now connect X360 COMPONENT cable on RGC input side. Take the Component cablewho came with RGC, connect in RGC output side and connect to TV. Turn ON X360 and TV. Get image.

 

Connect USB cable to PC*/NB*/NBK* and enjoy.

To be able to use the device you have to have it connected via Component cable.You need the XBox Component adapter/cable.

It will still be HD from your XBox.You might check your Video settings once you switch.

 

On the XBox it's physically not possible to have the HDMI cable and the Component adapter plugged in at the same time.

The casing from the Component adapter covers over the HDMI port.

The only way you can achieve this is to remove the casing from the XBox adapter.Not exactly a good solution but it is possible.If you try this be very,very careful.

Thanks again man. I did what you said and it worked like a charm. I just tried having it set to 1080i but these lines would go across the screen. Not a huge deal but certainly detracted from the quality. So I set it to 720p and that is working like a charm. Any idea why the lines would go across the screen? I'm using a Universal component cable so maybe that's why. It's not connected into any other systems but maybe the interference is still going in through the other inputs.
