Q: Elgato Capture Card: Won't capture anythng

I bought this Elgato capture card yesterday and I've been trying to get it to work. I've updated my driver, and changed the video quality on both of my monitors, along with the profile (quality) on the software but I keep getting this message:

I don't know what it means by "video output format" but I want to be able to record off of it, so thank you in advance if you know how to help me.

Preferred Solution: Elgato Capture Card: Won't capture anythng

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Elgato Capture Card: Won't capture anythng

I'm not familiar with it. But based on the image, there is no input signal (upper right box - Game Capture HD "no signal").

So the error is likely trying to tell you to change the output video type of whatever you have connected.

I have a home made computer. Please note that i did not make it, I am not very tech-y. It has windows xp.
I just bought an Elgato Game Capture HD so i can play video games and put them on youtube.
the Elgato does not support windows xp, it does support windows 7 sp1.
My questions is what can i do?
I have all of the programs that i need on my computer already. I dont really want to spend another some-hundred dollars on a new computer and the programs and whatever else i might need. Just want to know my options. If i need to spend money on a new computer or something, please assist me with what to look for -cheaply. If i need to get a new computer, i would prefer a laptop, though this is not a necessity.

I have absolutely no Idea how to fix this,
I recorded some GTA V Xbox One, with my Newly purchase Elgato Game Capture HD.
The only settings I changed is the resolution:
I put it at [email protected] (with allowance to use 60fps or whatever that tick box was).
When fast movements are made in game, when I record for example and I jump and fall off a car roof, as shown in this video I made (https://youtu.be/refYFmQPooc). You see very early on in that video what I am talking about.
Any and all helpful replies are very much appreciated!

Just today I got an Elgato Game Capture HD so that I could record myself on YouTube playing XBOX 360, XBOX 1 and Retro Game Consoles. I installed the latest version of the Elgato Game Capture software which required me to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 and also required some sort of update for Windows 7. I also downloaded the latest version of the Elgato Game Capture HD Driver. I then opened up the Elgato Game Capture software only to find that it didn't recognize my Elgato Capture device. I went into the Device Manager only to find that there was a yellow ! under the Elgato Game Capture device. I double clicked it to see what the issue was and it gave me the Code 52 error. I tried typing something in CMD to solve the problem but that didn't help. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver but that didn't help. I know that the Device itself is not broken because when a console is hooked up to it then it would show on my HDMI monitor and Retro consoles are included.
Here are some pictures that explain my situation-

Whenever I plug in my elgato HD capture device my pc goes to a blue screen. So what happens is I plug my elgato into my computer and open up the elgato software (Game capture HD) And it initializes (I think that is how you spell it) the elgato and 5 seconds later it will crash... I tried to re-install the drivers and the Game capture HD Software but it still does the same thing. Here is a link to a video of my screen when it crashes -

When I'm trying to record something in theater mode it looks good and smooth and hd. But when I record it with Elgato it says "deinterlacing" and after that it looks laggy / crappy / not hd. I need to record good Black Ops 2 material with my ps3 / elgato please help me!

I heard that with ps3 you can get the quality better with some other wires, can someone explain how?

If you need anything else like my settings or computer specs please tell me!

I'm using Mac by the way.

Please help!
 

A:Elgato Game Capture Device PROBLEM with Black Ops 2 [HELPME!]

Sounds like a configuration issue in your recording software/configuration.

There is no reason to deinterlace the video as it's a progressive signal (ie: 1080P) and you want to record it as a progressive signal (1080P).

As far as cables go, that device doesn't appear to offer an input options. Looks like you should be using an HDMI cable. For the most part, HDMI cables either work or they don't.

Hi,
I recently purchase a DIY desktop computer but it does not come with a firewire port. I installed one on the pci slot and it was detected by the computer.
Now when I pluged in a 6 to 4 pin firewire cable to my DV cam, I could not do a capture in either the Movie Maker or Premier Elements. It says 'no capture device detected'.
I checked on the hardware under device manager, and it shows that the firewire card is working properly.
I also tried using the USB port on the DV cam to capture, but it was not detected. I heard that it requires a seperate driver from JVC manufacturer. My Cam model is GR-D270.
I would appeciate alot for any answer to my problems.

I have been having a spot of bother getting my video capture card to work right. I have 5 PCI slots, #1,network card, #2, Video capture card, #3, sound card, #4, #5,free. AGP display card. AGP and Network share IRQ 10 with a thing called "PCI Steering" ???. Soundcard seems to use IRQ 11 shared with another PCI Steering. (I have disabled bothe the PCI Steerings. I think they are used for extra hard drives, maybe!)Everything gets along until I switch on the camcorder, which is connected to the capture card, then the screen goes blank. Then reappears as the mouse travels across the screen, if the camcorder as been switched off. The sytem will not reboot if the camcorder is on. Any input would be appreciated.

PCI steering is what allows many PCI cards to function together on the same IRQ. It should be enabled. I have three PCI devices using IRQ11 and they all work fine.

If you don't use your TV, how would you otherwise monitor your capturing progress?
If the card's software lets you use your PC-monitor for that (e.g. picture-in-picture), then you would not need the TV.

I am thinking of getting the Black Magic Intensity Pro (or waiting for the Blackmagic Shuttle - preferably not though.) and I would like to be able to record my PS3 with it.

My setup for the PS3 is a PC Monitor which has a VGA slot and an HD Fury cable which changes is an HDMI to VGA Cable but at the same time changes the PS3's HDCP output (which it does for games and films alike) into an HDMI or something that my Monitor can detect. (im not totally sure how it works)

So my question is if I do buy the Intensity will I need two HD Fury cables, one for the HDMI in and out sections or can I use my HD Fury from my PC monitor to the Capture card and then a regular HDMI cable to my PS3? Or is there something im missing here?

Easiest way is to buy a TV Tuner card for your PC. That will come with all the software and hardware you'd need to record a video image on your PC.

Then it would be a matter of getting the image to the TV Tuner through coax.

That could be done either by using the Xbox 360's coax out, if it has one, or the TV's coax out while the Xbox is connected to the TV.

It's hard to give you more specific advice without knowing what kinds of inputs and outputs are available on the Xbox 360 and your specific model and brand of TV.

Hi, I've been looking, though not 100% ready to buy yet, for an HD capture card. It doesn't have to be 1080p HD but 720p is the lowest I'll go. I'm not looking to spend much, only $200-$300 at the absolute MOST. I want something that's simple to operate, great quality video (preferably uncompressed HD), and affordable. I've looked at the Intensity, so if a suggestion is made, please don't suggest that, I've seen it a million times (I keep coming back to that card). HDMI is an optional, I know that component analog can do 720p or 1080i (which will scale down to 720p), so if there is a card out there that has component inputs and can record 720p uncompressed without artifacts or bleeding (meaning I want full quality video, like if I was watching a movie). I have a large harddrive that I will be recording to, it's a 1TB SATA; I also have 500GB SATA and a 200GB and 40GB IDE ones. If anyone knows anything that can help me, that'd be great. I also would be willing to look at the option of recording through VGA input (since my Xbox 360 has the VGA output cable), and that could do 1080p video.

Can anyone help me out with this, please? Google isn't being very friendly for once so I'm not having much luck there.

Ok, I gave this 10 days, I really would like a response, I know there has to be more than one card that can do HD video capture. I don't even want 1080p capture, only 720p, is that too hard?

Does it have to be connected to the TV/VCR and PC at the same time?
 

A:capture card use/how to

Without knowing specific brand and model numbers, the short answer is that the capture card has to be installed in the computer and connected to a video source at the same time. Software on the computer then saves the digitized video data from the card to a file on the computer's hard drive.

Complete novice, just bought a 2nd hand Sony Mini DV ( TRV10E ). Would like to buy a video capture card that will work this DV camera. Any recomendation on what card and software is good and what interface / interface cables are needed, what is the recomended minimum spec for the PC. Card must support the PAL system, based in South Africa.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
 

A:Video capture card

Ifin it's mini DV you don't need a capture device, you need a firewire card. 100% better than an analog capture device since it's a true digital transfer. With the right software, you can control your camera's transport with your mouse. I'm a huge fan of Ulead products. Video Studio is about $100.00, easy to use, and will fill all the needs of an average user including DVD construction. I don't know of a particular firewire PCI card to recommend. By the time I crossed this bridge, I had a mobo that had firewire built in.

Recently I tried to capture a VHS tape using my Sapphire 9600XT video card. Needless to say it didn't work - no video in. So I've been looking into video capture cards. I'm not sure that I want to buy one, but I do want to know more about them. One that piques my interest is the Videomate TV Gold Plus (from vibecomputers.com). What can anyone here tell me about video capture cards?

-How does sound captured from VHS with one of these cards compare to the same sound captured with an SB Live! 5.1 sound card?

-If i convert a VHS movie to MPEG or MPEG2 and make a DVD, how will the new DVD's video quality compare to the original VHS tape when I watch it on my TV? In other words, is it worth it to convert my existing VHS movies to DVD?

-Is the most common use for these to watch TV? What exactly is the point - wouldn't most people rather watch TV on their...TV?

Anyway I've been wanting to finally get a DVD burner and I figured that a video capture card might be a handy companion purchase. Any thoughts would be appreciated

I don't think you'd notice a difference - sound quality isn't that great in VHS tapes anyhow.

If you don't use some sort of filtering or other postprocessing method, the quality will be the same at best, but it'll probably look worse on a computer monitor, because computer monitors display progressive video while TV displays interlaced.

Well I for one don't have a television, only this 20" LCD monitor (with Pinnacle PCTV Rave TV card). Some video applications I use have filtering to provide nice quality TV, and I can capture to DVD / whatever without extra AD/DA conversions in between.

My basic goal is to transfer some VHS tapes to DVD. I want to capture the video out the back of my VCR (RCA jacks) and into my PC so I can edit it and then burn to DVD. Can anyone recommend a good pci video capture card to do this?

Also, I have a 1394 firewire card in my system which I use to dump my camcorder video prior to burning to DVD and works great. I tried using my camcorder, but the AV jack on my camcorder (Panasonic PV-GS15) is for AV out only to play on a TV or something like that. Some units have jacks that are for both in and out, mine is not. However, there is the DV jack on the side of the camcorder. This is the port I use to transfer video out to my hard drive into my 1394 firewire card. I have talked with Panasonic and they confirmed I am able to record both audio & video through this DV port. At first, I thought great, all I need then is a cable with RCA phono jacks on one end to connect to my VCR out, and a DV connector on the other end to go to my camcorder. Then I realized, the "VCR output" is analog, and the "DV input" is digital. D'Oh!

I tried the Plextor digital video recorder device, but it didn't work well at all. I was dissapointed because I'm a Plextor fan of other products. Anyways, after upgrading both the firmware revision and the software of the device to the latest revs it worked better, but still poor video quality by anyone's standards.

I know they sell devices which have both a slot for VHS ... Read more

A:PCI video capture card

TV capture cards will also act as analog video capture devices. I think this is an older card in OEM format Ė you have to download the drivers and software. But the price is right and Hauppauge is one of the best. http://www.softwareandstuff.com/CRD10186.html

Iíve been wanting an inexpensive TV tuner for the computer and ordered one myself. If you want to wait a week I can tell you how well it works. Only my first 99 channels are analog and I donít really need the digital input for the computer. I bought a HDTV for that, but it might be nice to grab CNN on my second monitor.

If you donít want to mess with OEM this looks to be a complete kit: http://www.dvcentury.com/Merchant2/...OD&Product_Code=96-999-8699&Category_Code=ETT

If you are sure you donít want a TV tuner for the computer you might do better with a pure capture card. You could look through Pricewatch for a good price on a name brand capture card: http://www.pricewatch.com/m/mn.aspx?i=214&f=1 Quite a few of the cards listed under capture are Firewire cards that assume digital input. You canít use one of those and it appears the cheapest capture cards are also TV tuners. My guess is that you get what you pay for as far as download speed, but there is only so much throughput you can get with a RCA plug. I had an old off-brand tuner card that couldnít be upgraded to XP, but it worked fine as a TV tuner.

If nobody here has a specific capture card they can recommend you might try here: http://epis... Read more

I am not a genius when it comes to my computer or video editing terms, so please talk to me like an idiot!
I am a photographer, I am learning to do dvd slideshows for wedding receptions, and am wanting to incorporate video clips into these slideshows. So I have bought Premiere Pro 1.5, and am now in the market for a good capture card. The only problem I have is there are so many! I need to know the best choice for what I am needing. More than likely I will be taking the video clips from all kinds of camcorders and other dvds. I was looking at the Hauppauge WinTV PVR 350 PCI, but I wasn't sure if that was the best bang for the buck. Please Help!
Thanks in advance.

I've been looking for awhile for a capture card with component style inputs and while browsing newegg, I found this.
It's the only one I have found with actual component inputs (that isnt one of those $1000 super high-end cards you can only find on professional sites.)
My question is will this thing be able to record input from sources such as 480p, 720p, etc? (as opposed to only 480i)
Many if not all cards have s-video but this still does not allow for anything better than 480i and manually trying to deinterlace videos has proven less than successful for me.
Iv'e searched but cannot find any reviews or further specifications on this card.
Will you be able to plug in a 480p or higher source (in my case, ps2 and xbox) and expect this thing to record it at those reses? I really hope so, this is totally driving me crazy!

Hi guys,
At our church we run our services live using Ustream and a capture card. It has all been working fine for a few months now, until last week when we turned the PC on and the live feed had static and black screen. I don't know why it has done this, and I have done all that I can think of to fix it. I have uploaded a picture of it to show you what its like.
The card is a Leadtek TV2000XP Deluxe. Our system is running XP sp3.
The input is AV-in, and we have tried updating drivers, pulling the card out and in, pulling the cable out and in again, and no luck. Please don't suggest running a new cable, as it has been working fine, and it runs through the roof and will be a major pain to replace.
Any thoughts? I need this up and running for next Sunday. Thanks in advance!

I just got a new All-In-Wonder Radeon 7500. I havn't had a chance to play around with it too mcuh yet, but it looks like the captured video takes up a ton of space.

I havent tried all the resolutions and such yet, but it seems that even the low grade stuff takes up a fair amount of space. I've downloaded full movies at high resolution that take up only around 700MB or so. So, I know it is possible to make them smaller.

I'm just wondering if anyone knows if I can capture directly to the smaller formats, or if I am going to have to capture a massive MPEG file first, and then use some software to convert it to some smaller format like MPEG4 afterwards.

Please let me know if you have any experience with this. I've found some info online about how to convert DVDs to MPEG4, but that's not exactly what I'm trying to do. I want to capture TV, and make it as small as possible without loosing a lot of quality, and I'm trying to find the best way of going about the whole process.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Video Capture - All-In-Wonder Card

Have a look on the ATi Website for the latest drivers.

Or

Go to download.com to find a MPEG - MPEG4 converter

Or

Just put the Videos in A zip file and load them from Winzip

Hi, I'm looking for a cheap video capture card to record some old VHS tapes.

Does anyone have any recommendations because I don't really know what to get.

Thanks

It will fit. The C100 looks like a good choice also.

ok so i play Halo 2 for the XBox a lot. i like to record my games from time to time. well everything was going great for a long time, then outta nowhere i ran into a problem. the capture card still displays whats on the tv on the computer correctly, and it still seems to be recording correctly as well. what's fishy is.. when i go to watch a file that i've recorded, there is no video. just a black screen with the audio playing. if i move the time selector thing or whatever to a specific point in the movie i will be able to see a frame every now and then. it's weird. i have tried saving the recorded file as different types of files such as .wmv, .mpg, .avi, etc. and all of them do the same thing except for one that i found was some kind of video cd extension thing, but although it worked, the files that i save with that extension take up like 10x as much space. i really have no idea what the problem could be, i reinstalled the ATI Wonder software. i've tried to do a system restore and my computer wont do that for some reason. i've tried opening the files with other programs like realplayer, divx, etc and the same thing happens. im not sure if it could have anything to do with codecs or not because all my other video files play correctly. im kinda baffled. im using windows xp pro on a dell dimension 8100 computer. 1.7 ghz, 600 ram, nvidia graphix card. if anyone has any ideas at all plz help. thx in advance
