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

Xbox 360 slim offline lag


Hi dinobots,

Do you use Wi-Fi or an ethernet cable? If you are experiencing severe lag, it could be a problem with your actual internet connection and not necessarily your XBox 360.

I would purchase an ethernet cable (they run about $10 over here in the states) and try that out before anything else

There are several solutions to your problem .
1. Run Ethernet Cable from an attic & drop either end down in the walls of the two rooms . Hardwiring is always going to give you the fastest , most stable connection .
2. Purchase a set of Power Over Ethernet Modules , you then plug your ethernet cable into your Xbox 360 on one end & the Power Over Ethernet Adapter on the other end , then plug the " POE " Adapter into a standard electrical socket . You will do the exact same thing on the other end with the Router this time . It should connect just as if you ran a single ethernet cable between the 2 devices .
3. You can use a laptop or desktop pc with a Wifi connection & Ethernet port to Wifi Tether / Share your Internet Connection . Just do a google search on Wifi Tether Xbox 360 or check out some of the videos at

No video, appears to be no video sync, diagonal rows of dots. Not an HDMI TV, switch is in TV position, cable checked ok by using a new cable, same problem


Sounds like you have an incorrect output signal from the Xbox or a fried chipset in the Xbox. Test the Xbox on another TV or monitor, test another video source on that same connection, if both of those fail, replace the Xbox. Hope it helps!

CONNECT XBOX 360 TO COMPUTER


you are only sharing files with your pc to xbox, you cannot connect to the net throught the pc, the xbox has to have connection to a modem/router, or a router itself which is connected to modem.
