Flickering On My Preview Screen And Captured Videos..

Hi!

So I have a ''normal'' SD Roxio game cap for the 360, I have the component cable and all that hooked up so that it works on my Standard Def(I know I know, it's 2012 go HD....bla) TV and also runs alongside my Turtle Beach headset.

 

On the preview screen all I see is this, whatever this is..(See attachment)

The audio is PERFECT! Completely in sync with my xbox.

 

I live in Ireland so the settings on my Roxio are at default, input is 480p/576p etc..

The TV Standard is set to Pal b as it is at default settings.

Computer Specs:

2GB RAM

160HDD

AMD Athlon Dual Core, 1.90hz processor.

Some sort of ''graphics accelerator'' (specs taken from CCleaner)

 

Everything runs smoothly on my tv and Turtle Beaches, no problems.

It's just that jittery flickering I can't seem to shake on the preview screen.

I have now tried 3 different methods of setting up the device(using splitters and the like) one meaning I can't even use my Turtle Beaches, all of them have the same problem.

Now it's possibly my tv but that makes me sad as everything is set up nice and lovely in my room so moving everything into the living room *just* to record is silly, not to mention I only bought this to record games when I'm palying with friends and upload the insane moments that always happen as we play

 

 

Reason why I believe it's NOT my pc:

I switched the component switch thingy on my xbox to HD and fiddled with the settings on the capture bit, the picture in my TV went dark as expected and EVERYTHING RECORDED PRETTY WELL on my pc with no lag or flickering...just mild blurriness. The editing software works a treat too, it's just the quality. Do I need to change TV's? There's a HUGE SD tv I could try fit where my current one is but that's it.

Excuse all the writing my capacity to explain stuff like this sucks.

Hopefully someone can make sense of this and help me out, it probably is my TV. :'(

Thank you for reading!

Joe

Is this the type of cable that you are using from your Xbox to the Roxio capture card:

the switch on this cable should be on HDTV.

 

 

Change the TV Standard to ntsc_m in the Roxio options.

 

What O/S do you have XP/Vista/Win 7.

Hi, OS is Windows 7 ultimate, yep your correct, I have the official component cable!

I tried all the options, believe it or not. :)

Thank you for the reply BTW. I believe it's just the tv....it's on it's way out...here's a quick video on my HDTV:

As opposed to the best my SDTV could come up with...

different games but you get the idea, it's sad I can't play in SD and record in SD. Still, I'd best get saving for a new television.

Just to clarify so I don't look (more)nuts: my SD tv is in my room, beside my desktop and xbox. To record on the HDTV it required me to move EVERYTHING minus the old tv into my living room so it's why I'd like to get slightly better quality recordings on my Standard Def tv. Ease of use and less ''I WANNA WATCH MY SHOWS'' :P

Please explain what you mean by "To record on the HDTV" and "better quality recordings on my Standard Def tv"?.

 

How do you " RECORD" on the tv.

 

Did you mean watch on your TV.

 

Your TV (HD or SD) has nothing to do with the quality of what you get on your computer.

 

Is this how you are setup.
