Question

Can i use the capture card as a transcoder and not recorder?

I mean without PC with a use of a USB A/C? I tried connecting the USB of the capture card in PS3 but that didnt work. I got no signal.

I hate switching between cables when i dont have the laptop near the tv.

Thank you!

OK, just not getting through... :(

 

FOR THE PASS THOROUGH TO WORK

 

 

YOU MUST HAVE USB CONNECTED TO POWER THE DEVICE!!!!!!!

I know that i need to power the device in order to work.

OK let me explain better.

The working connection: component cable from ps3(out) to roxio capture device(in), hdmi from roxio capture device(out) to TV and usb from roxio capture device to laptop. I get signal on TV, works fine.

The connection that does not work goes like this: component cable from ps3(out) to roxio capture device(in), hdmi from roxio capture device(out) to TV and usb from roxio capture device to something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Kodak-High-Performance-Adapter-8085003/dp/B003A4H2LI/ I get no signal on TV

WHY did you keep that a secret so long :huh:

 

What is the output capacity (milliamp) of the device?

 

Note that while the RGC only calls for 200 mAh a lot of the cheaper devices do not produce a clean signal to power the device or may fall off in voltage as the upper threshold in mAh is reached.

 

I will try to do some experiments today/tomorrow. I know I have powered the device using a different PC from the one I was working on and it worked fine ;)

I was able to test today and ran into the same thing you did :huh:

 

I tried a couple of USB Adapters that I had as well as my little Dell Mini 10 laptop and NONE would work!

 

It did run when connected to my other PC and I even tried it there booting to a drive that has never had the RGC Software installed, just to make sure there wasn't something in the driver that was needed...

 

The PC ran the Pass Through without any problems, but nothing else I have would...

I didn't get to it yet ~ I have asked some others to try but no one has reported back...

 

I suspect it has to do with the sign wave form of the converter (why I wanted to try a straight DC adapter) Whereas a Battery is happy to charge as long as the input exceeds its' voltage and could care less if it get a square, clipped wave or sawtooth!

 

But electronics are more particular and your PC Power Supply is more sophisticated ;)

Thanks you for this, i had the same problem, it sucks that you need power going to the device so i guess i will just have to switch wires when im not recording, this should definitely be warned in the product description :/ and cant you connect the USB to xbox to power it, or does it NEED the PC drivers?
