Using The Gamecap Pro Hd With A Different Capture Software


krlex

Question

Has anyone tried and succeed on using a different software capture suite with the GAMECAP HD Pro hardware? I used to have the previous Roxio capture device and it was possible to use their drivers with other, better and more complete, software suites, but seems like this time Roxio put a protection that doesn't allow it. I've tried to contact Roxio's customer service unsuccessfully.

 

Any thoughts? has anyone tried?

 

Cheers,

I don't think it will, few of the hd capture cards will work with anyone else's software ~ its' a proprietary thing ;)

 

Interestingly enough, Corel bought Pinnacle so in theory at least, it is the same company, just different product lines. The game capture console is just painfully slow and inefficient.

Avid designed Pinnacle products Corel bought. Sonic/Rovi/Corel/Roxio designed RGC Software. So your theory "it is the same company" means nothing.

 

If it's "painfully slow and inefficient" you have PC problems or a under powered PC your running the software on.

Hmm, maybe I have PC problems. Or maybe I am just too harsh when I am comparing it with Pinnacle Studio and Avid, don't you think?

 

On the other hand, the "Gamecap Pro HD" came out after Corel had purchased those companies so it would make "some" sense that the hardware would be supported, but of course, this is only a business decision and it doesnt have to make sense, it has to make money.

 

BTW @cdanteek, Avid didn't design or develp Pinnacle Studio, they bought Pinnacle in 2005. I was already using Pinnacle Studio before this.

 

Anyway, the bottom line here is that the "Gamecap Pro HD" is likely NOT to be utilized with any other capture device because the drivers have been somehow protected. When using the AVS Capture software it shows the "Gamecap Pro HD" on the list of available hardware and fails to connect with an error message that reads "PROTECTED". This is embedded on the posts I found where @grandpabruce suggested and it is in line with what @Jim_Hardin wrote.

If "Avid didn't design or develop Pinnacle Studio, they bought Pinnacle in 2005" that is eight years ago!

Why do you assume Corel had anything to do with the design or development of Roxio Game Capture HD Pro when they bought Roxio in February of 2012, RGC HD Pro came out in September of 2012 after only seven months of Corel ownership?

You're right @cdanteek one can't assume. I believe that if they had something to do with it the software implementation of the Roxio capture suite would be better.

 

One thing about the support scheme used now by Corel is that it is not nearly as good as it was when Roxio, Avid and Pinnacle were on their own. I've been trying to get someone in their technical department to answer my question unsuccessfully.

If you look at the history of Corel, they buy software company's, programmers, and developers. Not invent it or develop it.
