Question about Elgato Systems EyeTV 250

1 Answer

EyeTV 250 Connection

I connected my EyeTV to an A/V cable source from an Xbox 360.  At first the video actually came up on the EyeTV.  However, the picture froze and ever since, whenever I turn on eyetv to play my game console all I get is a black screen.
In addition to that problem, when I connect the eyetv to my tv cable I can receive a list of available channels but I can't pick up any kind of signal for any channel.
Maybe these two types of problems are related.  Basically, I can't get any picture on my eyeTV even after configuring the video, turning on and off game mode, etc.

    No, basically the real problem involves this....


    I can get eyetv to play what's coming through my component cables...but only for so long.  After a certain amount of time the picture freezes.  Basically, I can play on my game console on my mac, but after a while, the picture freezes (and it's definitely not the game or the console).

I cant connect my xbox live using a cable connection from my xbox to laptop how do i get the connction


That would actually be a "Line" connection. Or "Link". You will have to use a cat5 cord, and connect it to your internet source. (NOTE) just because logic says you can connect a laptop or pc to your Xbox360, simply because they use the same cords, doesn't mean it works that way. You can however use your laptop as a "Media server" in direct connection. This only allows you to transfer music and movies from your laptop to the 360. Not an internet pass through. Sorry.

How come on my Elgato Game capture HD for mac i can never get audio comming through my computer on any system


1) Make sure your game console is set to output audio via the cables you are using.

Solution: The PlayStation 3 (PS3), Xbox 360, and other game consoles have various options for audio output. Make sure you have selected the right audio output option for Elgato Game Capture HD to use.

When using the PS3 with Elgato Game Capture HD, make sure you set the Audio Output settings to Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI

You can refer to this article for more details:

http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/audiooutput.html

When using the Xbox 360, you can refer to this article:

http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/audio-video-setup-and-use/configure-audio-settings

For an HDMI connection with your Xbox 360, try these settings:

1) Start the Xbox 360 console without a disc in the disc tray.
2) Go to Settings and select System.
3) Select Console Settings, and then select Audio.
4) Select Digital Output, and then select Digital Stereo My Elgato Game Capture HD doesn

If you have the AV cable that has the switch on the Xbox end, make sure that it's in the correct setting. Your cable could have shorted out if this does not work.

you probably have a broken video or hdmi cable. somtimes the cables can even break at the connections or under the plastic coating, making the video going from your xbox to your tv not work.

Xbox 360 and bose surround sound no video


If your TV is HD, you should definitely be connecting the component video cables (green, blue and red) from the 360 to the TV (the 321 will not do video pass-thru from component cables). -Make sure you have a picture at this point. (TV switched to whichever input you connect the 360 to)
You can get an RCA extension cable for the audio portion (red and white) to connect to the 321 for audio. You could also connect an optical audio cable to the 321. An optical cable must be assigned from the system menu to work..
Let me know if this helps.

No sound no picture


Hi...
Disconnect all your cables and re-connect. Try powering up.
If you have no lights at all, your external power supply either has a bad cable or has failed
If nothing changes , call Microsoft tech support.
They're fairly helpful.
