    HDMI Cables


    Hi there! if anyone actually bothers to help me then thank you! It has been a goal of mine to become a youtuber one day. After months of saving up I have finally gotten an legato game capture and a good collection of games. I tried to set it up and everything
    went smoothly until I needed to connect an HDMI cable from the xbox to the elgato. I was frustrated because of a plastic flap on the av cable that covered the HDMI area. I literally chopped off the flap and fixed the problem. But now another problem has risen.
    When ever I have the Elgato and the AV cable connected at the same time I won't see anything on the screen. However when I Elgato is unplugged Everything is normal, but I need the Elgato plugged in to be able to record. Please help me! I don't care what I
    need to buy I just need to know what will allow me to have both together. I had my dream of video making in my grasp and now I'm so close! My COD Ghosts was scratched, My Dad is in the hospital, and now this. I don't need to have another problem. Please help
    me if you can. All I need to know is what I can do to have both plugged in at the same time. Someone please help me. I really hope my streak of bad luck will end sometime soon.

    :)

    xbox faulty

    Sorry to hear about your problems. Sounds frustrating. Did you connect it straight to a tv with the supplied HDMI cable? I had some flicker issues and it was the HDMI cable. I mean it is possible you got two bad systems, but it is also possible you have a couple of crappy HDMI cables lying around your house, like I did.

    Xbox 360 and HDMI

    How are you displaying your Xbox 360 - with or without an HDMI cable? We just bought a new TV today (yay! lol) and since it's HDMI capable, we bought an HDMI cable and hooked the Xbox 360 up with it. Man, does it make a WORLD of difference!

    Hey there

    Welcome to the forums

    .

    When you have two cables plugged into the Xbox 360. It confuses it because it doesn't know what to do. Its like when you plug an Earthnet cable into your Xbox when you have the adapter plugged in. It doesn't work because its confused.

    .

    Now I'm not too sure with capture cards, but I do bellive it needs to be plugged into your TV. I might be wrong but try it and see what happens

    .

    Please post back your results

    Regards,

    First, I want to thank you for trying to help me. Its driving me insane on how I might have just wasted 200 dollars.

    You are correct that one of the cables must be connected to your television, but there are three cables that need to be attatched in total. One from the monitor to the capture card via HDMI. Another from the elgato to a computer via usb. A third one connected
    from the elgato to the xbox via an HDMI. When I have it plugged in it is supposed to get video from the TV and audio from the xbox, the elgato just sends it a to my computer. My xbox thinks that it is supposed to be used for connection instead of video feed.
    Is there a setting that I can use to fix this? Please answer me back

    Question: Will any HDMI cable work for the Xbox One?

    Any HDMI cable will work. They just recently ratified the new standard of 1.4 so the cables are as follows:

    As of the HDMI 1.4 specification, these are the following cable types defined for HDMI in general:]

    Standard HDMI Cable – up to 1080i and 720p

    Standard HDMI Cable with Ethernet

    Automotive HDMI Cable

    High Speed HDMI Cable – 1080p, 4K, 3D and deep color

    High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet

    So you don't NEED to purchase a High Speed HDMI cable, but it would be best for the future if / when the Xbox One goes to 1080p or 4k.

    Loose power cable for Xbox One S

    Check to make sure the HDMI cable is completely plugged in. Make sure the HDMI cable is plugged into the ‘HDMI In’ port instead of the ‘HDMI Out’ port. It is also possible that the HDMI cable may be faulty, consider purchasing a replacement HDMI cable.

    Poundland cables do the job; been using one for the last 2 years and its spot on!

    HDMI Cable

    A lot of confusion between composite and component video because of the similar sounding names.

    Also confusion between RGB and component because of the colours of the cables.

    -

    Xbox, (and the other consoles) are normally supplied with a 3 way red/white/yellow cable plus an adapter block to fit European SCART sockets. This supplies composite video + left and right audio. This is the worst way to get the video to your TV, but is
    also the way that is compatible with the most displays.

    -

    If you still use a non-HD TV, the a fully wired RGB scart cable will give you the best picture (an s-video cable would also be a good choice if you have a free socket an no free RGB SCART)

    If you have an HD ready TV then component, VGA and HDMI will all give you a great HD picture.

    If you have a FULL HD TV (1080p) then component or VGA may work as well (depending on the brand of your TV) but you are safest using an mid priced (£5) HDMI cable.
