Perfect With Component, However, Hdmi's A Different Story.

Question

Basically, long story short, when i use my Gamecap HD with component, the quality and the framerate is perfect (excluding the odd drop of a frame or two every 15 minutes or so). However, when i switch to HDMI, it becomes choppy and distorts the quality every 3 seconds or so, I do not understand why this is the case considering the fact that Component works so smoothly.

 

My Specs are more than sufficient, but i'll list them out anyway incase there is a problem with specific hardware not being 100% compatible;

 

Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.5Ghz (Stock)

4GB Ram (800mhz i think)

GTX 460 HAWK OC'd @ 950Mhz

800W PSU (Shouldn't be any power problems)

 

I'm at my School at the moment so i can't upload any example Footage, however i shall do later.

 

Cheers anyone who shines some light on this c:

I have absolutely no clue what the problem is. The overclocked video card isn't a problem. Try only recording in 720p. I don't know why Roxio hasn't optimized the software yet, this shouldn't be happening on anyone's PC. As a last resort, record at 720p at 10mps instead of 15mbps.

STOP overclocking the Video Card and check for any driver and software updates for it... (remember they are almost monthly :lol: )

 

See if that makes any improvement.

 

Dropped Frames? Check properties of the HDD that you save on. Is it NTFS or FAT32?

 

I understand you may have to get back later, not a problem ;)

 

My graphics card being Overclocked should have no problems whatsoever, i ran very heavy stability tests for prolonged times to check system stability and even multitasked at the same time with no problems whatsoever, so i don't see why that would effect it whatsoever, and anyway from what i've heard, the Gamecap HD doesnt even require anything more than a Onboard GPU and a Decent CPU.

I have tried recording to both my internal (500GB NTFS 7200RPM) drive and My external one and the results are the same either way. I have even defragged my HDD.

Im tempted to return this soon, is it possible to return even though i have had it for more than 30 days, simply due to the fact that i am not satisfied with the performance?

Getting banned for using Logic (which was apparently guessing), lol @ this Jim Hardin guy.

 

@tbrewst i actually have tried that already, and i also today reinstalled a fresh copy of windows 7 without prevail, it seems the software itself needs another service pack for the HDMI aspect of the device :o but thanks a lot for the help

@Solution yeah its a bit of a bummer, if you find a fix, let me know please pal :D

Alright, try this then. Set your Windows theme to Windows Classic, set the Roxio capture program to high priority in the task manager(you'll know which one it is, the program with insanely high CPU usage) and set the priority to high. Start capturing then minimize the window. Let me know if that works.
