Roxio Gamecap Problem

Question

So, I have no clue what this means, so I thought I'd come to the place where knowledge of this sort of thing lives. My friends gave me potential answers, but want backup on them if they happen to be right.

 

Whenever I start up my Roxio software, on any of my 2 computers, Audio is fine. A-OK. But when it comes to the video, this happens :

(Image insertion refused to work, it is a safe link.)

 

For the record, this is Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64, but it wouldn't work for any of my systems. Whether it be the 64, Wii, XBOX360, Playstation, or the Gamecube. None of them worked, it just kept showing up like this on both computers, one laptop (Windows 7), one desktop (Windows Vista).

 

If anyone has any ideas as to why this might be happening, please, let me know. I'm willing to try anything at this point. I did NOT pay that much for a device that doesn't work.

 

I've also set the picture proof as an attachment.

Yes, but everything is plugged in correctly. Why would it have no signal if everything is properly done? It still shows signal on my television, and the audio transfers to the PC fine.

Obviously it's not!

Wait, is it absolutely necessary to have HD cables?

 

If so, then that's definitely what my problem is, and I don't see why I didn't just get a cheaper, non-component cable needing capture card.

No, it is not necessary ( but you get a better picture). If you are using a composite cables (Yellow/Red/White) then you will have to set up the connections differently ( http://forums.support.roxio.com/topic/78805-customer-made-tutorials/ ).

 

 

In post 3 you said " everything is plugged in correctly" so we assumed you had the correct cables.

 

All of this has nothing to do with the "no signal" on your computer, but you brought up the subject of using none-component cables.

 

You never did say if you were getting a picture on your TV.

I'm using the cables, Red, yellow, white. No HD. I am getting picture on my television, completely fine. I'll see if that tutorial helps me at all and edit this post with results afterward.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

EDIT: I think you misunderstood. It's not Roxio - TV I'm having trouble with, I have the HD hooked up. It's XBOX - Roxio that I think is giving me issues. I'm using Red Yellow White XBOX cables. Is that a problem, or can it still be done?

 

PS, if you say it can be fixed by buying HD cables, you only THINK you're funny.

The cables (composite or component) just provide a signal to your TV, and that's ok....

 

Go into your Device Manager and see if you show this

The Roxio Game Capture device does require the Component (RGB) video cables. You cannot use the composite (Red/White (which are audio) Yellow) cables.

To be more specific, if you wind up with the Yellow (composite video) cable on the Green Component input, you will actually get an image similar to what you're getting since the video timing signal will trigger the input and let it capture something if the signal is big enough. Apparently it's not enough in your case, just enough to get a bit of a preview.

 

Below is how the component (RGB) and audio cables are supposed to be connected. Yes, you will need the component video cables, I'm not being funny.

Just a warning.

That diagram is incorrect for the order of the cables on the output side.

The Green and Red are backwards for video and so are the Audio.

That is unless my device is totally different than the diagram.

The cable colors should not line up from one side to the other.

In fact if you look at it that way then they should be opposite from one side to the other.

Terry, I'll have to double check when I get home, but I thought I recalled that the physical wiring internal to the device went straight through like the diagram shows. I'll check later.

 

In any case, there is no appropriate place for the yellow composite video cable to go.

Lets wait till the OP gets back to us. Remember, he IS getting a picture on his TV (he did not say it was a good pic, he said "it was fine").

It's a good picture. Full color, graphics are fine.

 

I checked the Device Manager and I do see the 2 Roxio GAMECAPs.

 

I'm just gonna stick with the idea that it's the wires I'm using and get RGB wires. It can't really hurt me to get them anyway.

 

I'll see how it's running after that.

 

 

EDIT:

Everything on the Diagram is correct except for the placement of the output wires. They're backward, but all the letters on the actual box in the diagram are the same as the actual product.
