Here is my setup.
I have my Xbox 360 (Slim) hooked to my monitor via HDMI cable. It's not a TV but an HDTVmonitor I bought at staples. A Samsung 1080p 23" for $200 wasn't bad. I bought it for both PC gaming and Console gaming so I figured why buy 2 seperate screens when I can have 1 and just flip back and forth channels when necessary.
It's an ok setup but I am not sure if it's going to do for what I want.
I went to Best Buy and bought a Pinnacle Dazzle Studio 14 for $80. I haven't gotten it to work but I can already tell I'm taking it back, it's forcing me to use my av cables and makes my picture look like @#$^. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I know there a couple computer guys on here...
Would it be easier just to have an actual TV monitor for my xbox and leave my computer and recording someftware on the PC monitor?
I rather have a capture card inside my computer so that is less mess on my desk.
