    The viewer in capture software will always lag behind the game. You need to use a splitter and 2 sets of RCA composite video cables to provide audio and video signals to both a TV and a capture device. A passive splitter will provide a weaker, noisier signal than a powered splitter, especially for long cable runs.

    Passive splitter: https://www.amazon.com/Outop-Female-Splitter-Audio-Adapter/dp/B00HLV1KQO

    When a capture device relies on software to encode, dropped frames are the result of either a CPU which isn't powerful enough to keep up or a hard drive that can't keep up. You should try using a second hard drive, not the boot drive, for capture. If that doesn't work you also need to use different software which will allow using a fast lossless codec for capture, like Lagarith (LAGS) in YUY2 mode. Also, capture audio as PCM. Note that the file size will be very large, about 30GB per hour. You will need to re-encode the video to H.264 or some other more compressed form of your choice after capturing.

    Try AmaRecTV for lossless capture. See http://iotku.pw/gvusb2-guide/ for AmarecTV software set-up. The device mentioned in the guide, the I-o DATA GV-USB2 has a good reputation if you decide that you want to replace your EasyCap.

    Any SD capture device called "EasyCap" is very likely to be a low-quality product. Even the software that comes with them is unlicensed with no support. Case in point, there is no page for Honestech 2.5 TVR software at Honestech's website. The software was likely created by a third party who used the Honestech name without Honestech's consent.

    Note that I do not play video games and don't record game play. If you need more help, you may need to rely on someone else or look for a video capture forum at a gaming-oriented website.

  3. I tried AmaRecTV and it works 10xs better than Showbiz and the third party software honestech... I found out that the product i baugght was a fake version of EasyCap, but im very glad i was able to find a solution, thanks for the help and i'll take what you said in consideration. I might have to buy a different capture card for better performace.
