Roxio Gamecap Hd Washed Out Colors On Xbox, Hissing Audio

Question

Hi all, first time post here. So I've been using Roxio for a few months now and it works great except that when I connect it my image becomes dark and washed out.

 

I'm using a Win7 computer with Roxio GameCap HD. My Xbox is connected via component... here's where it might get a bit jumbled so I'll try and explain it as best I can. My tv is mounted to my wall and is an LG 3dtv that is extremely flat and therefore very difficult to be changing the cables every time I use it..

 

Now I solved my problem by buying an extra component cable which I'd need anyway. I also bought a coupler, both for component and rca. To give you an idea, this is the kind of thing I'm talking about.large__13_05_2007_18_19_3rcaComponentAdapter.jpg I have my cables that are going into my TV act as my Roxio output. (They're male-to-male cables) When I have my Xbox connected via my couplers, my display is find and sounds fine. When I connect to Roxio, the colors become washed out and desaturated. There's also a slight static sound, very low though.

 

To illustrate further, this is my setup Roxio: Xbox wires>coupler>component input to tv.

 

With it, it's the same except I remve the coupler and add Roxio in between. Any idea on how I can fix the colors? That's my main issue. Also,the colors issue is also recorded in Roxio so I know it's not my cables.

Move stuff around so you can the coupler and use short wiring... Just for testing to keep the variables to a minimum.

 

Also, can you test it with another device that accepts Component Input? Another TV or something?

 

You understand that the preferred hookup for Roxio & Xbox is via HDMI??? (guessing your TV doesn't have an extra HDMI input port?)

Sorry, I didn't quite understand that part.

 

I don't have anything else to test it with and my Xbox is of the older models that don't have HDMI ports.
