I am using the Hauppauge HD PVR 2. My device can record without problem. I even get the preview screen on my PC. No issues there. The issue is that my TV will change without prompt from showing the game to saying Not Supported, as if it thinks i'm recording via HDMI because of my TV input. I can still record, it's just I can't see what i'm doing. However, the preview screen on my computer still shows what should be on my TV screen while the TV is black, just on a second or two delay. Enough to not be able to play a game looking at it.
Connections being made:
1. USB slot on PVR connected to PC.
2. A/V In slot on PVR connected to Ps3. I couldn't find the cable that came with the device, so I have that bit that goes into the PVR as what came with it, but the other half which goes into the Ps3 is third party. So this foreign cable is hooked into the back of my ps3 and it's component cables connect to whatever you guys use to connect it to the pvr.
3. HDMI Out slot on PVR connected to TV.
The Ps3 has 3 cords in it. My ethernet cable, my power cable and the component connection.
The component input on my TV shows up as no signal. It does work, however, on HDMI.
My Ps3 is set to output Component/D-terminal or something like that at 720p / 1080i. I originally had it at just 720. No notable change from one to the other. I've also tried turning it off and on after this setting has been applied.
I am using "Hauppauge Capture" on my PC. Has the red recording circle as it's icon.

I guess that component in to PS3 and hdmi out is not allowed unless I mis-understood what you meant by 'works on hdmi'
Can you simultaneously have hdmi AND component outputs from the PS3 ? Then hdmi from the PS3 goes to the tv - image will display there - and component to the PVR as you now have (no hdmi out from the PVR) - image then displays also on the tv.
Hey Claudio. The issue is, this device is intended to work on Ps3. Shouldn't need anything else. There is something functionally wrong with what i'm doing.
As for DB83, I meant to say that when I change my TV input to HDMI, it's showing the game on my screen, though my Ps3 is supposed to be outputting a component signal. Here's a picture they supply, showing that I'm supposed to use an HDMI in the setup.
Forget the PS3. That output goes to the PVR so you consider the outputs from that to your tv. You have hdmi going from there to your tv so,as you clarify, you should see a picture on the connection of the tv over hdmi NOT component. There are no component cables going in to your tv, unless you have other equipment connected, so you can not see any picture with that selection.
Yeah, I see the logic behind that, but then why is it not supported? Why is it nixing my ability to play on HDMI input if my Ps3 is putting out component signals? What part of this isn't being used as intended? Again, this should work fine on Playstation.
I checked the wiring diagram and that concurs with my suggestion earlier.
The only possibilities are:
1. You still have a hdmi cable connected to your PS3
2. Your hdmi cable from the PVR is plugged in to hdmi in rather than hdmi out
3. Your hdmi cable is faulty - replace and try again
You said you can record even though you can't see it on tv. Since you say it could be 720p or 1080i can you check to confirm what the format is the captured video? A pic would be nice.
The reason for my question above is.... I found the comments about your setup very confusing. Especially where you say component doesn't work on your tv. It sounds like you are saying component doesn't work directly from the ps3 even without the pvr if so then it may be because the output resolution is not supported by your TV.
The clue may be in the video you've already captured.There's not much to do but then I can't do much anyway.
Component works on my TV. I've used another capture device which didn't involve HDMI cords at all and it was fine the entire time. What I mean by component doesn't work is that the component input on my TV shows nothing. Says no signal. It's not identifying the component output the Ps3 is trying. Which, I guess, is because the TV's HDMI slot is taken up, not it's Component.
Not sure what you mean by "can you check to confirm what the format is the captured video?". I can hit record, get a solid 2 minutes in, and then it triggers Not Supported. Recording resumes, all is well, and I just need to change the input on my TV then change it back to HDMI or turn it off and on, then I get another few minutes.
1. There is absolutely no HDMI cable connected to my Ps3. I can't be more positive about that.
2. Tried both, for fun. Neither worked. If it were in the wrong slot, wouldn't the preview not work anyway?
3. The HDMI shouldn't be faulty. Aside from trying to get it to work, i'm using HDMI straight from the Ps3 to the TV. When I want to test, I unplug it from the Ps3 and put it in the PVR, and reset the Ps3 output. In the interest of curiosity, I tried two spare HDMI cords. None worked.
I appreciate the help. Really eager to get this resolved. Sorry if I don't come across as appreciative.
There is but one other possibility since I now read, probably did not notice this before, that the issue is not the display on the tv but some switching on the device that causes the tv to think that it has a component input.
I recall that you did say that you are not using the a/v adapter supplied with the PVR. Whilst a third-party one might appear to work, you simply do not know what is happening under the hood.
Replacement AV adapters should be available direct from Hauppuage. I suggest you out-source one.
That is my fear. I don't know how i'd get that part. Definitely something to look into I guess. Thanks.
