Using With Nvidia Gtx 660 Ti

Question

Now, I've had the Roxio Game Cap Pro for about a year now, and I haven't been able to utilize it for what I want. I'm certain the device works, and I've installed it properly. When using it with my X-BOX or PS3 it works fine. It's when I try to use it with my PC that the device simply doesn't want to cooperate.

 

I have an Nvidia GTX 660 Ti with HDMI output. The Roxio Game Capture device simply doesn't pick up a signal. So, I went out of my way to get component cables (DVI-I -> Component) and those too refuse to pick up any signal when using the device. I'm 100% positive that my video-card is outputting a proper, working signal that is picked up just fine by my monitor... so why isn't my Game Capture device able to pick up this signal?

 

The device is advertised as being able to be used with any HDMI output, yet it doesn't work with my video card on my PC. What is the cause of this?

Scroll down to see the connections in the following link:

That is what the RGC Pro is intended to do. You can check threads, in this forum, to see if anyone has been successful with a connection that you are talking about. Since the RGC Pro can't do game capture, from a computer, I am not sure that it will work.

The RGC was only released in November 2012.

 

And it WILL NOT work using the same PC to both Play and Capture :huh:(we thought it would but it doesn't)

 

In Theory, if you had Two PC's, one to capture and the other to play on, it should work ~ but I have not actually tried that ;)

According to this page picture #5 shows going from a desktop PC to a laptop to capture so I'd have to believe 2 PC's would work.Roxio says it does.

Hi, i have a desktop with a gtx 680. I have been able to hook up the game capture hd pro to that computer (usb) and have one hdmi cable to from my gtx 680 to the roxio device. So yes, you can play and capture from one computer definitely. Make sure to either have the computer restarted if you connect when the computer is on, or before turning on computer connect all cables to computer and roxio device. If device doesn't show up in roxio capture software, you will need to enable the roxio (multiple display) in nvidia control panel. Also, you need to select the nvidia hdmi audio in sound properties of windows as default device if you would like to capture audio. From testing if you capture when the preview audio function of roxio game capture is enabled, you get a background noise so better to disable that. If you would like to hear what is playing, use the hdmi passthrough of roxio device and hook up to a hdmi tv or monitor with speakers to so you can hear the sound, etc. Hope this helps.

Nobody else has been able to do this so it really is not much help...

 

I suspect that it is because you have a desktop with a real video card and probably 2 monitors as well???

 

Of course it typical on a forum that people don't post 'successes', only problems :lol:

Maybe nobody else has posted the solution yet? I could be the first, but also, i have 2 laptops where i connected the device (each by itself) as well, i tried my method and it works, you don't need a second monitor/tv to do this. It took some trial and error but it will work.

Ok i will post a picture when i get a chance. Hardware setup for laptop is hdmi out of laptop goes to hdmi input of roxio device. Usb from roxio goes to any available usb port on the laptop. Optional is hdmi out of roxio device to hdmi in of monitor or tv. Software i will post screenshots when i get a chance. By the way in the roxio faqs for this device, it does mention that you can use one computer-powerful one is recomended.

I don't recall ever seeing that??? Could you post a link to that statement...

 

I have only seen one person state that this is possible. ALL the rest say it is not. (I don't know)

I think this is what the user is referring to (from http://corel.force.com/roxio/articles/en_US/Master_Article/000014750-Roxio-Game-Capture-HD-PRO-FAQs)

 

How can I use Roxio Game Capture HD PRO to record my PC Games?

Make sure the graphic card with your gaming PC is DirectX 9.0c compatible and has an HDMI output. Then connect HDMI from the graphic card to the HDMI input of Roxio Game Capture HD PRO device. Use another HDMI cable to pass through the video to a PC monitor. Connect USB cable from the capture device to a laptop where you have Roxio Game Capture HD PRO software installed. You can use the same PC to install software and capture as well but it requires high performance PC in order not to affect your PC gaming result.

Then launch the Capture application to start recording your PC gameplay.

Thanks Walt!

 

It kind of contradicts what it says in the second paragraph, where is specifies you need a 2nd pc or lap.
