Thread: I'm Tearing My Hair Out Here!!

  1. Unhappy I'm Tearing My Hair Out Here!!

    Ok so i have been trying to get my laptop to display what my TV is currently showing. What i have is my main PC hooked up to my HD LCD TV and i have tried using a VGA splitter and then a VGA to RGB (the red, yellow and white leads) and then hooking up the RGB end into my dazzle capture card. Alas this did not work. Can anybody suggest a method of showing what i see on my TV directly to my laptop??

    Thanks In Advance

    Try a video capture device, take the video out out of the TV and then use the capture to input to the Laptop and use the capture program to show the screen.

    Why do you want to show what is on the TV on to a laptop? try a TV adapter for the laptop..

    As far as I am aware, you cannot actually push video into a VGA connector at the back of the laptop, it is an output.

    The reason i wish to do this is to show live gameplay over blogtv.com. And i did put the PC into my capture card as i explained -> The image was just static

    Sorry the way it is written seems to imply your connected your dazzle to the array of splitters.

    If you have a video camera with a fire-wire lead you could point the camera t the TV and use that method, not the best

    The dazzle as far as I can see should have worked.

    There is software out there that allows an input to captured and streamed over the internet...

    Heres a diagram of what i did

    -------------------------------------------- S-Video Converter
    ------------------------ VGA Splitter - RGB Output (yellow) - RGB to RGB - Dazzle
    ------VGA from PC -
    -------------------------- VGA Splitter - VGA going to TV

    When i did this i got a black and white static picture.

    There has to be some possible way of achieving this. All i want is my laptop to show exactly what my TV is showing. I have a DVD Video Out Port at the back of my TV if that is any help.

    Thanks In Advance

    why do you have an output from your computer's vga, that is out only.

    try your dvd video port out and go from that to your dazzle capture device.
    Scart--->composite (yellow) on dazzle.

    another thing. The Red, Yellow and White cables are NOT RGB. They are
    yellow - composite - video
    white - Left channel Audio (or mono by itself)
    red - right channel audio

    Hi Smifis

    I have just tried the DVD Video Out Port in the back of my HDTV Andit only does the built in dvd'd channel. I had a thought that is there some kind on converter box that i can connect a scart lead to my TV and output to composite cables so i can hook them up to my dazzle capture card? (sort of like how DVD recorders and VCRs capture what you see on screen)

    P.S Thanks for telling me about that it's not RGB

    Thanks In Advance

    TV Video out (yellow) >>>>> to Dazzle video in (yellow)

    RGB leads and you would have, Blue, Green, Red

    VGA is output, so must always be fed into a an INPUT,
    as i "Video out" of the TV will be fed into a "VIDEO in" onto a DVD (VHS) Recorder

    video out >>>>> video in = OK

    vga out TV <<<--->>>>> vga out Laptop (not allowed)
