Roxio On A Monitor?

 Share

Question

Currently I play on a 22" BenQ 1080p monitor (Model: E2200HD) using Turtle Beach X12's for audio. I would like to use Roxio while continuing with my normal setup because I payed a few hundred for this gaming monitor. Not using it would be silly.

 

My current setup is:

 

Video: VGA from 360 -> VGA into monitor.

Audio: R/W cables (attached to VGA from 360) -> [3.5mm to RCA Stereo Splitter Cable (Turtle beach)] -> Turtle Beach X12's.

 

*I don't use the other side of the RCA stereo cables on the splitter piece. I just connect the VGA male R/W into the Splitter Female R/W and leave the male side unopen on the splitter piece.

 

The 3.5mm to RCA Stereo Splitter Cable can be found HERE under the "Parts & Accessories" section.

 

Now is there any way I can continue using this monitor while using the full Roxio capabilities? I'm thinking recording audio may be an issue because I can't use audio from my monitor with VGA, only to my Turtle Beaches. I'd like to record, do commentaries, and even do live commentaries/streaming. I'll probably need some type of adapter, right? I'm not really sure how I can set this up. If I can do everything but record audio, I don't mind. I'll most likely be doing commentaries over my gaming videos anyway.

 

Here is a crudely put together paint picture to help you understand my setup. Hopefully someone can help. Thanks

I have read that but that is using component cables on a regular television. I'm attempting to get advice on using the Roxio on a monitor that doesn't accept composite cables. I need to throw VGA in the mix somehow.

 

Well maybe that is the way Roxio designed there product to work?

 

This monitor only has VGA, no DVI or HDMI?

I'm sure it is how they intended their product to work. I'm also sure Roxio enjoys when people purchase their product over others which I'm trying to do. Just have a little bump in the road.

 

It has HDMI/DVI but when using HDMI I can't use my Turtle beaches for audio. Unfortunately it seems VGA is my only option. I haven't been able to find a VGA to component adapter/converter that would work. That is why I posted here hoping someone with superior knowledge on the subject would assist me in the correct direction while explaining if I can record game audio or not.

 

Would I be able to find a female component (with audio) to male VGA adapter of some sort? This way I can take steps "C/D" in the link you posted and just modify them slightly with this adapter. Though I'm not sure where the Turtle Beaches would fit in.

Sounds right.

 

You can use the Turtle Beaches when you use HDMI,I am.

All you have to do is is plug in both the standard adapter to your XBox and also the HDMI cable.They will both fit.They won't when you use the Component adapter on the XBox because it also has an optical audio out built into it the makes it too large to fit both cables.

Use the Red/White from the adapter to connect your audio using the splitter the TB provides.Use the HDMI cable to provide video to the monitor.

 

This won't solve the Component out issue from the XBox but it will let you use an HDMI connection from your Xbox while still getting audio for the headset.

 

As far as the connection goes,unless you have Component connections on your TV or Monitor then you have to use some kind of electronic device to do the conversion from an analog signal (Component) to a digital signal (HDMI).

To do all this you'd need a converter before the device to go from HDMI to Component and then another after the device to go from Component to HDMI.That would let you use HDMI out of the XBox and HDMI in to the monitor.

 

Another thing is here is a post that has a video showing how to hook up to a TV that doesn't have Component.Could work the same for your monitor.Just know that this is not an official Roxio setup,just someones work around.
