The fix is to turn on the laptop obviously :)

 

Of course you have to turn on your laptop :blink: How else do you expect the Capture device to get any power?

But I don't want to have the capture card on I just want to play without capturing because my laptops battery is broke so I need to run the charger across my room and I don't want to do that all the time I want to play on Xbox, is there anyway to fix this ????

Fix what? If you want the signal to go through the device you need the laptop. Get a new battery for your laptop

 

Why don't you just connect your Xbox to your TV?

So that capture card has to always be on for me to get signal through to my tv, and my Xbox is connected to my tv but if you mean unplugging my hdmi to plug in my other component cables just to get a picture it's a bit of a waste of time if I must say so my self, as I am in a competitive team and most day I have to quickly get on for a game battles match that my team mates have erranged and I might not make it Which makes us loose points and its all because of the capture card :/

Why blame the capture card if you have a broken laptop :blink: :blink:

 

If you are too lazy to unplug/plug in a couple of cables to play silly games then nobody can help you there

You are not really a nice person are you, the laptop is not broken the battery is and I'm not lazy i just happen to study sports and fitness at college so get your facts right before jumping to conclusions and you might see them as silly games sir but I see them as having fun in your free time. And in the previous reply you posted (get a new battery for your laptop) I'm not really wanting to spend that money for a battery but if you want you can dish out some money to get one for me.

TWO things have to be done for the Pass Through to work...

 

1. the device Must be powered on!

 

2. IT MUST BE CONNECTED TO A COMPUTER WITH THE DRIVER INSTALLED!

 

That's the way it works and it is up to you to meet those conditions ;)

 

You could try a passive or active HDMI splitter so you have one hdmi out for the RGC and another hdmi out for your TV...

^This or just connect your Xbox to the TV directly. Every capture card needs power to be used even if you're not recording.

But not everyone requires a PC with a Driver, that was a new one to me ;)

I don't think the splitter would help because I have the old Xbox elite and a pair of astro a40's and they need an optical cable input so I need to use component cables, I have cracked the plastic casing off the component cables to get the hdmi into the Xbox if you know what I mean so I can't really understand what the splitter would do

Hey Darren

In case you haven't noticed, these "Digital Guru's" are not the kindest of tech support people out there. Im not even entirely sure if they work for Roxio or they just enjoy these forums.

Now ill try my best to help you out.

The current setup I have is my Xbox 360 S is being routed through my capture card via component, and is currently not plugged into any PC/Laptop (havent been able to actually stream cause bandwitdh issues). I have tried doing it with HDMI but it would not work. I suspect that for it to use HDMI it needs additional power and therefore needs to be plugged into some sort of usb source. What I can suggest doing is getting like a wall pluging to usb (Kind of like the adapters that Iphones and various other phones give) and try and use that, which is alot more affordable if it does work. If you do though switch to the component plugins it should work.

 

Thanks Mike

Mike: We DO NOT work for Roxio but have many years of experience.

 

Your setup WILL NOT work!
