Some Xbox gamers ask me if it’s complicated to set up a capture card for Xbox 360 – dude, it’s VERY EASY to set up even a 9 year old can do it!
Okay first, let’s talk about the required items.
Capture Card For Xbox 360 -Required Items:
1. Dazzle Capture Card For Xbox 360 – My most recommended capture card for Xbox because of quality, price, and is what most gamers prefer!
Its retail price is around $80 but you can get it on Amazon for less – awesome.
You can find it here: Dazzle Video Creator Plus HD
2. Three Audio/Video (A/V) Splitter – This is where you’ll be connecting your Xbox and A/V cord to your Dazzle capture card.
You can find it here: Splitter
3. One Set of Audio/Video (A/V) Cable – This includes the red, yellow and white cords.
You can find it here: Cable
4. Xbox with Standard Definition Cord – The cord included with your Xbox.
5. Your PC or Laptop – This is where you’ll be installing the Dazzle capture card and where you’ll record your Xbox game (Duh!)
Now that we have everything we need, let’s talk about how to install it.
5 Simple Steps to Install Your Xbox 360 Capture Card:
Step 1) Install Dazzle in your PC
Install the installers that are included in your Dazzle capture card. First the pinnacle studio quick start installer then the pinnacle studio instant DVD recorder.
Step 2) Plug in all the three splitters to your Dazzle capture card
After the installation, plug in all the three splitters that we’ve talked about earlier. You will see three different slot colors (white, red, and yellow) in your capture card. Also, make sure that your capture card is already connected in your PC or laptop.
Step 3) Plug in the A/V cable to the splitter
Next, you have to connect the A/V cable to the corresponding colors. Insert the white color to the white slot, red to red, and yellow to yellow slot. Make sure you don’t connect to the wrong color.
Step 4) Connect the Xbox cable to the splitter
Just like with your A/V cable, connect the Xbox cable with the corresponding colors. Take note that you’re connecting the cables to the splitter, not directly to the capture card, just to make things clear.
Also, make sure that the other end of your Xbox cable is already connected to your Xbox.
Step 5) Connect the other end of your A/V cable to your TV slot
Now, the last thing that you have to connect is the other end of your A/V cable. Simply connect it to your TV.
You’re done! Open your Xbox (your PC should be open too) and start playing. You should be seeing your Xbox screen in the upper right corner of your Dazzle software.
Note: If you don’t see your Xbox screen in your pc, make sure that:
A. The capture card software is open
B. When you open the software, click SETUP then CAPTURE SOURCE and you should see the Dazzle card on the option.
Okay, so that’s basically it! Hope I made it very simple and easy for you. Now if you’re looking for the Dazzle capture card for Xbox 360, you can find it here: Dazzle Video Creator Plus HD
