Distorted/garbled Signal, Ps3 W/hdmi Splitter And Asus Vh236H Monitor

Question

I just got my HDMI splitter to use with the Roxio GCHD Pro, but the picture/signal is garbled on the TV. Sometimes it comes through fine on the computer screen, but that's useless since the delay makes it impossible to play from there. After spending $160 on the capture card, $30 on the splitter and $600 on the new computer, I'm quite frustrated that this isn't working. I have everything set up the way it's supposed to be as far as I know, but nothing fixes the unplayable picture distortion on the monitor. Is the monitor just not compatible with this setup, or is there a setting that I need to adjust? I'll try anything that doesn't require buying more equipment at this point. Thanks in advance.

 

EDIT - I have the HDMI splitter set up with the PS3 HDMI cable to the top of the splitter, and the TV and capture card cables on the bottom, with the capture card cable connected at the bottom of the GCHD Pro, if that helps. When the cable is plugged into the top of, the picture is fine on the TV, but the capture card only gets the signal when it's plugged into the bottom. Do I just need another HDMI cable, or what? The monitor only has one HDMI slot and does not support component, so that's not an option. Needless to say, I'm really frustrated and just want this thing to work like it's supposed to.

Why would you even think you need a Splitter??? :huh:

 

From your PS3 you connect to the RGC Input side using Component cables...

(ps3's can't use HDMI due to HDCP protection coding)

 

USB from the RGC to your PC...

 

And then HDMI (or component) from the RGC Output side to your TV...

 

Why doesn't that work as intended?

I was told that I needed a splitter by someone else, and now I'm stuck with it. I don't want to pay $20 for even more equipment when I was told that this would work. I waited a week and a half for these HDMI cables to get here, so I'm fed up and over my budget already. Is there ANY way to just get this working with what I have?

You tried it and it doesn't work...

 

You have to use a Component cable from your PS3 to your RGC!

 

However... You can use an HDMI from the output side to your TV or Monitor :huh:

 

As a test, you can make up a Component cable set by using ANY set or combination of wires with RCA plugs on the end ;)

 

I have done this for testing with Composite wires (Yellow-White-Red) and an Audio set of wires (White-Red)... I just wrap tape around the RCA plugs and color them with Magic Marker to keep my signals straight ;) Dig around a bit and see what you have at hand.

 

Assuming this works as it should, you can go formal at your own pace -_-

Well, an HDMI splitter will get rid of the HDCP on the PS3 and allow you to stream games. It will also let you play lag-free, so if you're playing a game that needs to have 0 lag (like a fighting game) it won't interfere with your session. So, saying "I don't know why you'd need an HDMI splitter" is basically like saying "I don't have time to look up a helpful answer for you so I'm going to read you the instruction manual." I do, however, know that you need an HDMI splitter because I'm a stream producer.

Not all splitters do what you claim...

 

Likewise anything that takes place Before it reaches the RGC Device will have absolutely NO effect on lag :huh:

 

The 'lag' comes from the time it takes to convert the input signal to an m2ts stream and the processing of computer... ALL or which takes place after the signal reaches the RGC Device...

 

A proven troubleshooting technique is to Start with "Factory Specs" and go forward from there...

 

I don't work for Roxio but clearly I am trying to assist -_-
