Roxio Set-Up Problems



Hello everyone first post here and having some troubles setting up the Hd pro to an old non-hd tv using RCA cables. I have the 5 connectors going into the RGC, the one yellow to the tv, then red and white coming out of the RGC and to the tv. With the connector set to HDTV the Xbox plays to the tv but the RGC says no signal in red with a blue screen. When set to tv the tv screen is black and the RGC records as its supposed to.


I went to device manager and roxio was set under sound, video and game controllers, uninstalled then re-installed it. It then went under others but soon went back to sound, video and game controllers.


Im not sure if it was installed wrong or if its my tv, any help is appreciated

The ONLY output from the GameCAP is either HDMI or Component...


There is NO Composite signal, so your TV must be able to use HDMI or Component (PR, PB & Y)


IF your TV can't do that then you need to replace it or buy a Converter ($50+-).


Xbox setup should be like this:

Sorry if I'm confusing, new to all this but it's an old tv and doesn't take HDMI. So I used the component cables, green/blue/red/white/red into the roxio and then red/white to the tv. The cable from the Xbox to the roxio had a spare yellow cable so I plugged that to the tv (watched the set-up on here from "Vaughn whiskey").

The tv won't accept HDMI, that's why the component cables were used. It works but just on one or the other (tv but won't record, or record but won't show on tv).

That makes No Sense...


Record comes ONLY from the the USB cord connected to the PC :huh: It could care less what you have on your TV or even if you have a TV connected.


With that said, explain in detail what happens before and after you hit Capture ;)


Also list your PC Specs (like my sig block) as a hunch is forming about your USB :glare:

The component cable that goes from the Xbox has a switch HDTV or TV.


When the switch is on HDTV the Xbox displays on the TV as it should but the roxio says no signal.


But when the switch is on TV the Xbox displays to the roxio, you can record and play on the computer screen, with sound through the computer but the TV screen is black with no audio from it.


As for specs, it's a laptop running windows seven, ill get more info tomorrow.

Is this what your using?


Does this help?



Connect Xbox 360: Using Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable



The Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable comes with some Xbox 360 console bundles. It works with both high-definition and standard TVs and monitors.




Note Set the switch to HDTV only if your TV or monitor supports a screen resolution of 480p or higher.

  1. Set the switch on the A/V connector for your TV or monitor:
    • High definition: Set to HDTV.
    • Standard: Set to TV



Note To connect to a standard TV, use only the yellow, red, and white connectors. Do not use the other connectors.

  1. Connect the connectors on the component HD A/V cable to the corresponding color input jacks on the TV. On a high-definition TV, if the cable has a yellow RCA composite video connector, leave it disconnected.
  2. Connect the A/V connector on the component HD A/V cable to the A/V port on the console.
  3. Turn on the TV and console.

If you do not see the Xbox Dashboard when you turn on your TV and console, you might need to select the video input

  • The console automatically uses the default display settings. If you want to try to improve the video display, you can change the settings on the console.

Sorry im trying the best i can, I tried explaining the the TV doesn't accept HDMI cables. It is set up as post #4 says just using the cable that cdanteek posted, but with only red and white coming out of the roxio to the TV with the yellow plugged to the TV too. I played around with the video input on the TV but as post #7 said it works on the one setting not the other.

Heres with it set to tv



Heres with it set to HDTV



Heres the switch (sorry about the picture)



And heres the compnent cable set up


the 6th yellow connector can be seen going off the dresser to the tv


Hopefully this will clear any confusion, and for some reason the laptop that has the program downloaded wont let me log onto the forum, had to go to a different one if that has any relevance.

Looks like it is plugged in OK.


AND it is working just as it should!!!


You cannot have it work both ways, not as a HDTV and a TV, that is why there is a switch on that output cable :huh:


As I recall there is not room to plug both that cable (to supply your TV) and an HDMI (for RGC) into an Xbox at the same time?

(I think I saw something about mutilating the plugs but that isn't something I will recommend)


Does that seem correct to you Ryan?


Other than another $50 converter to convert HDMI or Component Output to a Composite signal, I do not know any good way to do this... IF anyone else does, let us know!
