Well, it came today, and I was like YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
But then I looked at it and was like where the hell is this supposed to plug in? o.O
So I have a look on YouTube, and I've only found out that you need like 6 different wires for this..

I need like all them wires, but I have no clue what they are or where to get them.. Do shops even sell them?

You don't HAVE to have those unless you are recording AS you are playing on live (which hogs LOADS AND LOADS of storage. If you're just capping H3 stuff, you can easily preview what you are doing on the computer screen...it's just a bit smaller :smile:

BTW...you 2 sets of Red/Yellow/White RCA cables, and three splitters. Cost me less than ten bucks (as I have loads of RCA cables from DVD players, VCRs, etc...)

This is my setup... These items are actually quite readily avaliable if you know where to look. :tongue: It lets you cap while displaying what you're capping on the TV.

My setup (stuff I posted a while back):

So I use two of these:

And have one of these:

They're not extension cables BTW... CBA to redo the pics.

Component cable set to SD (when recording of course. It's normally on HD :tongue:):

Is everything connect properly? Have you chosen the right source? And have you selected the right input formats? E.g. PAL 60? Oh, and is your EasyCap a DC60+?

And if all else fails, I suggest you try AmCap, which is what I use. :smile:

You got the AV cables and the to AV splitters?

This is a video and a picture I made a long time ago but general idea. I hope it helps.

For the video ignore the end part, that doesn't effect you. Thats how the cables should look except u only need 2 AV splitters, not 3.

Edit: Dazzle is the same as an easycap.

Hey, update the USB drivers, my cap card did that when I reformatted from media center to XP pro and it wasn't "fast" enough on the driver end.

K this is pissing me off, I still get the input signal not clear, I can't find any USB driver updates either =/

EDIT: Finally got it to work, but is there anyway to make it record faster? It's really.. what's the word, slow..=/

try to get windows movie maker to upload it, or just remove your installation tools and then get a driver from windows new hardware wizard, then use WMM. I hated the crap software that came with mine.

Can you name a good piece of software that it will work with? I made a video earlier, the quality was crap, it lagged, it was in black and white, also, it had fat lines going through it, worse part, it was a 40 second video and it took up 1GB..
I've tried recording it in Windows Movie Maker.. But no luck lol.

Is your EasyCap a DC60+? Only the DC60+s will record PAL 60 and NTSC 433 in colour. And have you selected the right encoding? I think thats the word...
