Question

Greetings all: A few months ago, I bought myself a Roxio HD Pro Capture Card-it costs me quite a chunk of change. However, it does come with a nice editing program and is fairly easy to setup and use. No complaints there. I hooked it up to my PS3 and discovered that I get an "Blocked Signal" when I launch the capture application. "Hmm"-I thought. After some research I discovered that Sony has done this, due to copyright issues and that you need AV component cables and can't record directly through an HDMI. Fair enough, I can deal with that. I haven't yet gotten the cables I need to record the ps3-all in due time; I am a patient person. This however, seems stupid to me and sony's copyright issue, kind of defeats the purpose of having a game capture device. But anyway, the issue I have encountered over and over again has to do with audio and video lagging, I DO have the correct cables for my psp; which I have hooked up and tested and the animation and sound is delayed-I know this is a common problem; I have tried the suggested fixes on youtube and I am still encountering the same problem. There is a time delay that effects the game and the recording. Even when the capture button is not pressed: there is a delay between the sound and video from the console to the pc Does anybody have any suggestions as to how to correct this issue? As I have said: the youtube solutions do not work for me. and the profile for my psp is 480i. I actually like having the psp game on the big screen, as it doesn't hurt my neck; but the lagging makes it irritating. I have even looked at a few FAQ's and it says that the time delay is normal for the device-that doesn't seem right. My initial PC setup was a custom built xp machine with a 2.4ghz processor, GeForce graphics card ATI/Intel Chipset and some other stuff I can't remember, but it was low end. Luckily, shortly after I got the capture card: my motherboard went belly up. So, now I'm running windows 7 Ultimate Edition 64-bit AMD 3.6 gig processor DDR3 RAM a new powerful video card: the guts got an overhaul and I now have 11 usb ports as opposed to the 8 I had before. My fans and all that were also cleaned right out What is causing this common lag problem?

The lag is there and there is no way around that!

 

You have to use a "play" Monitor and ignore you 'capture' monitor.

 

The HDCP Copy-protection has nothing to do with Sony, it is worldwde and has been for some time now.

 

It is also found in the output of the RGC Device.

The psp cables are a smaller version; that hook up to the top of the psp and have red, yellow, white, blue & green ends

Two Monitors!

 

One is for 'Play' from RGC Device directly to it (pass through - it can be a TV)

 

The other is your PC's Capture monitor ^_^

 

There is a way around this, you use use your PC's for your Play monitor and start/stop capture blindly using the Hot Keys. (for those of us that don't have a monitor in every corner of the room ;))
