Very Low Quality When Recording



Hello guys, I am trying to record wii game footage via Component but the footage previewed/recorded is no where near passable as "HD" and is just as good/bad as those cheap £30 usb ones you can get.


It is very grainy, lines are visible when anything is going on on the screen, blurry and miscoloured in places and overall no where near the quality I expected from a capture card which puts "HD PRO" in the title. This is in both the finished video and the preview, the quality is put to max.


Using the output on the HD PRO linking up to my tv via Component cable it is perfectly fine.


It also by default sticks black borders around the video and some flickering green line is underneath the footage, but nothing cropping in vegas won't fix.



Computer specs:


Oprating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit


Processor : I7-2600k 3.4ghz

Ram: 8GB DDR3 1600MHZ

Hard Drive:

1TB 7200RPM 32mb Cache

500GB 7200RPM 32mb Cache<< Second hard drive used for recording

Graphics card: Nvidia GTX650 1gb.


Would really appreciate some help on this, I have found others reporting poor quality from component cables on various other website/forums, however I'd prefer responses from people who aren't blind with anger.


Thanks guys!

Well, the main reasons for the bad quality are these two things:


1. You're component cables AREN'T the official ones made for the Wii, and/or you don't have gold plated cables going from your Roxio game capture to your TV, which results in dull colors. You may have to mess with the Hue,Saturation,Brightness and contrast to get the colors right, but it won't be nearly as good as getting the original colors from the source. If you have an extra HDMI cable laying around(if you have an HDTV) then plug the component cables from your Wii to the Roxio, and the HDMI cable from the Roxio to your TV. Colors fixed.


2. Make sure you set "576p" in the Wii settings if available, and if it is, read above to fix your color issues.
