Ps3 Picture Quality Is Awful

Question

Hi all, got a bit of an issue with the Roxio Game Capture with my PS3 console. I have recently made the switch from Xbox to PS3 and i am enjoying it so far, until the same problem occurred with the PS3 as it did with the Xbox. Now i didnt want to complain about this with the Xbox because i just thought that the Xbox component cables were getting on a bit but after buying brand new Official Sony Component Cables the problem persists. I will run you by my PC Specification and whatnot to let you know that my system is way more than capable to run this device (although the recording quality is same as always i guess, its downing a little too). Also my TV is a 23" LG LCD with native 720p screen format.

 

System Specs:

 

i5 2550k @ 3.4Ghz x4

XFX Radeon HD4870 2GB GDDR5

4GB G.Skill Ripjawz @ 1333Mhz

64GB Samsung 830 Series SSD Boot Drive

160GB Games Drive @ 7200Rpm

250GB Storage/Recording Drive @ 7200Rpm

Zalman Performa CPU Cooler

Gigabyte GAH61MD2HUSB3 Motherboard

OCZ Fatal1ty 550W Gaming PSU

 

Now with that spec, the video quality shouldn't really be getting worse should it? I mean i can still play quite demanding games on high/ultra with this setup so a little video capture should be easy going, in fact i know it should be because i screen cap a lot and that is smooth and clear as ever. I am preaching out for solutions as I'm really unhappy with the Roxio quality right now, I was thinking about going up to the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro but if this is anything to go by i wont be making the switch.

 

A rapid answer would be amazing as i would like to get my Youtube channel back up and running properly as soon as possible.

 

Thanks, Camron.

Are you getting a good picture on your TV?.

 

If the answer is yes, check this option in your Roxio software:

 

Select the NTSC-M option in TV Standard setting for all resolutions (480p/720p/1080i). This applies if your TV is a PAL (Europe) or NTSC (North America).

Hi, the picture through the TV is the problem more than anything, i was just simply saying that the quality of the videos i record have decreased quite dramatically

Above is a link to my most recent video captured with the Roxio and i am very disappointed with the quality decrease in the device. But as i said its the picture on my TV, its to the point it gives me a headache to look at and none of the previous fixes are working.

 

Thanks.

See if this fixes your TV problem:

I also am assuming that when the PS3 is plugged directly into your TV the picture is ok.

 

It's all set up like that in the first place so I'm sure its the Roxio as, yes, the picture is fine with the cables directly from the PS3 to the TV.

 

Im really disappointed with this as I enjoy using the Roxio but while it is like this there is no way to use it at all in my opinion.

 

Thanks.

It would appear that you have a defective capture card. You could try a quick test to prove it for sure.....instead of your Xbox/PS3, use a DVD player or Camcorder (component cable) as your source, if that fails, then you will have to contact Roxio.

 

Maybe another fellow user will jump in with other suggestions.

 

Good luck

Thanks for the help, i will have to contact the retailer i bought it from, surely there is a warranty, thanks for all your help though, Cheers.
