Recording In Sd On The Rgc Using Composite On A Hdtv Without Component



I just bought the Roxio Game Capture today as I've been looking to get into capturing and watching back matches between fighting game players in our community in London. So I decided to go for the Roxio as it looked like a good product for my price range : not too high because I don't know much about streaming/capturing yet, but not too low to avoid buying a shoddy product.


The problem is that I have a HDTV without the traditional component inputs, instead it has composite inputs. I have set up the Roxio to try and use the yellow composite as a substitute for the green component cable as shown in this picture:




It works fine on the TV with good sound and fine colour but on the computer and the Roxio Game Capture bundled software, in the preview image and when I try to capture it is black and white and the sound is messed up.


This video shows my problems..





I can't get it to work properly but I guess this is down to the fact that both of the HDTV's i've tried do not have Y/Pb/Pr inputs and just have HDMI. Can anyone give me some tips on how to set it up so I can play and capture in SD properly with colour and regular sound? Or is my only bet to getting it working properly just to give in and get a component to HDMI splitter?




I've uploaded my computer's specs as an attachment post-105438-0-26614500-1343491022_thumb.png: I believe everything should be in order, just barely.

First...in your picture of the capture card you have a yellow plug going to the Component In Y jack.....were is that coming from?


That is were you plug in the Component cable from your Xbox. Here is pic




Using the above cable you plug the R/G/B into the capture input jacks, and the Y/R/W into your TV.


There may be other ways here
