Roxio To Ps3 With Pc-Monitor (Black Screen)

Question

Hey there!

 

Yesterday I received my Roxio Game Capture HD Pro and was really excited about it. To my total dissappointment I couldn´t make it work and I tried searching for my problem all over youtube and several forums, but without result. I have also tried all possible mixes of cable connections to make it work but not that either.

 

Anyway, here's what happened.

 

Before the roxio I played on my ps3 using my PC-monitor with a hdmi-cable, where I had an hdmi-dvi adapter to be able to get it into my monitor since I don´t have hdmi in it. (without sound, so don´t bother about that).

 

Then I got my roxio.

I connected my Game Capture to my PS3 by using Component-cables. I connected them on the Input side of my Game Capture and I had also connected the usb to my laptop and installed the software.

It worked fine.

Now I was about to plug the pc-monitor to thhe Roxio Game Capturer using my hdmi-cable, where I also.

With the hdmi-setup on my PS3, I would only be able to see on my PC-monitor screen, so of cource I changed it into Component/D-terminal option and I was able to see and capture my PS3 on my Roxio Game Capturer on my computer.

The problem is that I was now unable to see it on my PC-monitor since it refuses to switch over and show the component-screen.

 

What happends is that the screen fades into black and there is nothing I can do except for turning it on or off. Can´t even get to the Source-menue to change anything, because my screen "goes into sleep mode" instantly when I put the hdmi-cable (from the screen) into the Game Capturer. I tried having my computer plugged into the vga and then the PS3 into the dvi (hdmi-dvi adapter) And switching back and forth with the source-option, which worked when I just had the hdmi-setup on my PS3. But when the hdmi is plugged into the Game Capturer instead of the PS3 it just switches back to the computer, like it's avoiding the Game Capturer. Feels to me like the Capturer doesn´t send any information to my monitor, or?

Exaclty same thing happends on another screen I tested.

What's the problem? Am I not able because I'm using an adapter or? That seems strange to me if that's the case.

 

Basically it's:

Game Capture -> Laptop with USB

Game Capture -> PS3 with Component A/V Cable

Game Capture -> Monitor with hdmi-cable (dvi-hdmi adapter into the monitor)

(Don´t bother about the sound, I just want picture)

 

This is how it should be connected, right? Still not working.

 

Anyone? :(

Please clarify what you are trying to say here.

 

"Now I was about to plug the pc-monitor to thhe Roxio Game Capturer using my hdmi-cable, where I also.

I connected the hdmi-cable from the pc-monitor into the Game Capturer (the side that went into the monitor had an hdmi-dvi adapter).

 

When I'm normally playing PS3 using only the ps3 and the pc-monitor connected with eachother by a hdmi-cable, the video option is set to "HDMI".

But when using the Roxio Capturer I would need to change that to "Component/D-terminal" in order to be able to see and record in the Roxio Game Capture on the computer.

But when I changed to that option, the screen goes dark since it's not HDMI any longer, which means that I have to change the hdmi that was in the PS3 and put it into the Game Capture hdmi-output.

I think that is how it is supposed to be set and the monitor should start showing me my PS3 again.

 

Also, my PC-monitor is an HP 2010i .

Did you verify that you are hooked up the way it shown here http://img.roxio.com...dpro_qsg_en.pdf

 

The only difference in your setup is you are using a PC Monitor with a hdmi-dvi adapter.

 

Edit

 

The PC Monitor is external from your laptop?.
