Hey guys I know youre not actual hauppauge support but Im hoping you can help me out since Im at my wits end and its been a week and still nothing from the "official" hauppauge support.
ok so my problem is while recording vids from my xbox in theater mode I receive a no signal / signal loss on my TV and arcsoft total media extreme freezes for about 10 secs then it comes back. After about another min it happens again ... etc etc etc. While actually playing through my HD PVR I have no problems. Just while Im recording. I havent tried recording while Im actually playing.
Ive read some threads on here and so far this is what I have done.
Im running windows 7 32 bit on an IBM Lenovo T61p 4gb of RAM Intel Core 2 Duo CPU(s) 2.50ghz. 148gb ata hd.
Arcsoft SW tried 184.108.40.206 / 220.127.116.11 / 18.104.22.168
Arcsoft SW Suite CD ver 2.5
HD PVR REV E1
HD-PVR Drivers tried 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 (188.8.131.52 actually worked better)
I have a Samsung 55" flat screen (1 yr old).
Tried different USB ports.
Laptop plugged in. laptop running off batt.
USB ports and laptop power saving options turned off.
Dropped xbox display setting from 1080i to 720p which made the signal loss less often but still happened.
Using the cables that came with the xbox and the pvr. No cable extenders are being used or after market cables.
I have also plugged my hd pvr into a different plug (wall socket) in a different room on a totally different circuit.
I was actually able to capture 1 vid but then it started acting up again. I power cycled everything. Had issues. Powered everything off for 30 mins powered everything back up same issues again.
This is my second HD PVR. First PVR had no out put signal. I have friends who are basically running a similar setup (running a lesser equipped laptop) that are not having problems.
Just cant figure this out. Any help would be appreciated. Sorry for the long post but I wanted to get as much info as possible. Thanks again.
