This is what happens when I change my screen resolution to 1280x720 - http://imgur.com/bjIMZ
The white "lines" were drawn by me to show how much screen room is missing due to a black border.

The VGA cable is directly connected to the monitor, so BMI settings? I've searched everywhere within the BMI settings (BMI Control panel and Media Express preferences) and couldnt find anything that changes it. Any recommendations?
Also, when I have the resolution at 1920x1080, I don't get the borders. Only 1280x720.
Another question for you guys/girls who are smarter than me when it comes to output video settings.
AVI 8-BIT YUV or AVI Motion JPEG? Which looks better?
AVI Motion JPEG is the BM on the fly MJPEG compression codec. This can be used to reduce data rate to fit a single disk drive sustained data rate.
Which looks better? Less loss with uncompressed but both need further compression for distribution.

I see your diagram, but I'm confused. I have the 4 side black. What is the diagram entitle about it?
Go to link: http://amamaman.web.infoseek.co.jp/english/amarectv_e.htm
AMARECTV is a wonder software to you. Its record 1080p (1080i deinterlaced automatic in preview and record), can use various codecs like UT VIDEO or LAGARITH (very better AVI Motion JPEG), configure device from input splitted, full screen, more satble then BMI software.
Try and reply.
The desktop is 4 side black.
Cauptain - 99% of the time I'll be capturing my desktop through Xsplit to broadcast live. I'll VERY rarely, if ever, capture and record locally. Thank you, though.
I have the screen resolution set at 1280x720, I have the scaling currently on aspect ratio. I cloned the BIM HDMI monitor and my 22 inch HP monitor together. I have it set up for multiple monitor display. I'm not sure what else there is to tell? What would you need to know?
To be honest, streaming live with Xsplit at 720p with a 1920x1080 was never an issue for me. I used to do that when I streamed with DXtory. It would encode the stream from 1920x1080 and broadcast it at 720p quality. Always looked really good, so trying to figure out why the 4 side black is appearing when I change the resolution to 720p is really on the bottom of my list of things to do.
What I WOULD like to figure out is the interlacing that you see happening on my test videos. Since I'm trying to put out nice quality videos, having the black lines across the screen randomly really isn't an option for me. I'm sure I could try to find the reasons why that's happening. I also haven't tested Motion JPEG yet, either. If you guys have any suggestions regarding the interlacing issue, I'd love to hear it, and I greatly appreciate all of your guys' help thus far. You guys have been a great help.

I need to re-read your configuration but I don't understand the use of clone mode.
The best I understand now is you want to feed 1280x720p/60 to the BMI (BMI set to 720p) and VGA to your computer monitor.
The VGA output should be set to the monitor's native resolution (e.g. 1920x1080p60, 1650x1050p/60, etc).
You can't do 1080p60 with BMI. The most you can do is 30. As far as the VGA output, it's set at 1920x1080p60, if that's what youre referring to. I do have that set correctly with no issues.
Only reason I was considering lowering my monitors resolution is because somebody here recommended that since I'm broadcasting 720p quality videos, I mine as well just make my desktop resolution 720 to match the output. Like I said, though, it's really not an issue when everything is said and done. I'd prefer it being on 1920x1080 anyways.
Like I said, the main issue is the interlacing I'm experiencing while trying to view my videos after I get done broadcasting them. Maybe it's just how twitch.tv converts the video after broadcasting live. I'll have to check how the video looks while actually streaming.

Black lines don't sound like "interlacing" but to inability to keep up with the data stream.

Come to think about it, maybe that was happening cause I was only broadcasting at 30 FPS. I believe I read somewhere that when you broadcast FPS games in Xsplit, you need to raise your FPS higher than that. 30 is good for games like WoW and SWTOR, but FPS it needs to be higher.
I'll test out a game like WoW later to see if that's still happening.

The captured stream is showing frame blending (double vision) due to 60p->30p*. Also one of the frames is torn (light pole). The 1,986 Kbps bit rate seems excessive. Compress more until the tearing stops.
Those aren't "black lines", every other line references a different frame in the original 60p stream.
* The 60p stream should be frame decimated to 30p.

When streaming on Xsplit, I really don't have that many options available as far as encoding goes. The only things I'm able to select is the bitrate to use as I'm streaming (which I'm surprised only shows 1300 considering the fact i have my max bitrate set at 2500. I have a 6 mbps upload, and any bitrate above 3000 makes it so people with bad internet cant view your stream, so I felt 2500 was a sufficient bitrate), the resolution to broadcast in (in that video, I had 1280x720 selected. If I try to stream live in 1080p, my in-game FPS takes a hit and starts to turn choppy), and your FPS you stream at, which in that video I had 30 FPS chosen. Other than that, everything is just built in to Xsplit and I'm unable to edit any of it, besides the options I listed.
So are you suggesting that if I had 60 FPS selected instead of 30, the video wouldn't have looked like that?
Stream Transport to cap it non-realtime so the frame split is in the file so happened during the upload.
There may be a way to realtime frame decimate the 720p/60 stream to 720p30. Maybe others know. Too bad BMI won't cap at 720p30.

I've connected the Xbox 360 to the Blackmagic Intensity Pro with component, but have an HD-DVD drive and would like to play films in full 1080p without having to disconnect all the leads from the BMI (as I'll never get them back in again) and plugging them into the TV (as well as it being a right faff).
Thanks in advance.Dom Robinson
