Playing Ps1 Games On Ps2 - No Tv Output.

Question

Yo yo,

I've been using the HD Pro for a while now for the PS3, PS2 and it's working like an absloute charm.. until I tried a PS1 game in the PS2 today. I bought a used PS2 since my old one wouldn't read the discs and I wanted to go back in time.

 

THE PROBLEM:

Now the PS2 works with the game cap using component cables, it's absolutey fine in doing so. Today I've tried to play a PS1 game on the PS2 and record it with the Gamecap but for some reason, the moment the PS1 logo on the tv vanishes the screen flickers a few times then just goes blue.

The Gamecap software plays preview audio and displays the PS1 footage fine, it even records it and produces useable files for editing but for some reason there is no TV output going on at all.

 

I restarted the console and the TV output started working again all the way until the PS1 logo faded out, flicekred a few times then there was nothing being displayed on the TV and the software continued to work just fine.

 

What on earth could be causing that? I can't think for the life of me why the software would work 100% with the footage but the hardware seems to stop giving me an output.

I'm currently using a component in - HDMI out and I've had no problems until now.

 

Any ideas?

None!

 

Of course the RGC Device is a Pass Through... so there is some issue with the signal.

 

I assume if you connect the Component from the PS 2 directly to the TV it works OK???

It works just fine! Would it maybe work if I used a converter on the PS2? Convert the AV cables to Component?

If all else fails I'll just use my HDMI splitter so I can plug that into the tv and the cap card instead of using the card as a middle man.

You CAN NOT Record from a PlayStation using an HDMI cable.

 

You CAN NOT use Composite Video with the RGC Pro.

 

I am not familiar with the PS2, but I though I read where it has Component output?

 

If so, then it should work!

 

But I believe that is what you have stated does not ^_^

 

I'm not looking over your shoulder nor do I have a PlayStation to test with, so I do need these answers.

99% PSX games are 240p output only. Because this no will work in PS2 captured by RGHD.

 

Some PS2 games like Megaman X Collection not work in Componente output, its because 240p limited.

 

To record PS3 via HDMI input on RGHD is necessary any HDMI powered splitter.

While it may be 240, I do not see how that makes any difference to the RGC :huh:

 

We have had more than one user report using a PS2 successfully with the RGC...

 

You CANNOT use HDMI as the signal is Protected with HDCP coding.

Hi Jim,

 

Its a not fault on RGHD, its limited by PS2 device. Capcom never fix this on some games.

 

PS2 work normal by component 2 hdmi converter.

 

On direct input in RGHD its ok, no record HDCP signal but use a powered HDMI splitter...You can. Every source HDCP (Bluray, PS3, cable channels...) is beat by splitter. Tested in various capture cards too.

 

Try it. Its beatiful thing!!! :D

I HAVE a powered HDMI splitter and it does not work! "Signal Protected"...

 

You appear to have a Splitter that eliminates the HDCP coding as there are some that do, and that lead you to a false conclusion.

 

May I ask which one you are using??? This is mine:

But since the RGC does accept Component, why not eliminate the Splitter and use Component into the RGC and HDMI Out to the Monitor? <_<

It isn't an "old model" it is a different brand and I had no need for more ports ;)

 

And that is what I was saying, some are wired to eliminate HDCP encoding, (probably not legal) some are not.

 

Thanks for the info!
