If the PS3 switches to a non supported resolution for the 1212 like 1920x1080p/60 or 1920x1080p/24, then you would get what you described. I'm not familiar with all of the resolutions the PS3 will output.

Why are you switching resolutions in the PS3? What resolution are you switching to? Maybe if you furnish more detail as to what exactly you are doing it would help. What is the source for the videos? Are they DVDs or flash card being played by the PS3 shot on a digital camera?
Thanks for the reply Hauppauge customer support is useless.

To be clear I have used the Hauppauge with PS3 for months and had no problems recording any games what so ever. When you select component out for the PS3 it asks you what resolutions you want to use and you tick 576, 720 and 1080i. Like you suggest you dont tick 1080p becuase the PVR wont handle that and you would get a blank screen. By not ticking the 1080p box the ps3 never changes to a resolution the PVR can't handle so i dont think that is the problem.

I'm not "switching" resolutions I am just switching my ps3 output from HDMI to component so it goes through the HD PVR.

The signal seems to go from the PS3 to the PVR then into the TV fine, but the capture module is not picking up the signal and us such won't record. It seems to pick up the resolution of the ps3 but no audio and no picture in the preview window, as such any attempt at capturing fails.

I have tried new cables, un and reinstalling the drivers and software, changing USB cables, changing USB ports, turning it off and on for long periods I am at m wits and!!!

It seems to be this "no signal" screen that flashes up on my TV before the image then shows which is the problem, I have never seen it before and it is not something from my TV because if my TV has no signal the text is totally different.

I can't find anyone who has had this problem or knows the solution!

I will try make a quick video with my webcam and showing the problem

HI. I have an Hauppauge hd pvr capture device and in order for me to set it up s a dvr device I need to use the ir blaster that came with it. I have tried to make the ir blaster work with the Verizon fios box but still no success. The ir blaster is supposed to automatically find the device code when I run it. Please help!!

I bought a Hauppauge 1212 HD-PVR. It captures video just fine, and I have created AVCHD DVDs with it that are supposed to play in a Blu-Ray DVD player. But the DVDs will not load in a blu-ray DVD player. I am capturing video in the standard .TS format (not the PS3 or X-Box format.) First I tried burning onto a DVD-R, then I tried a DVD+R. But my Insignia blu-ray DVD player won't load any of the discs.

What is going on?

Other than trying some of the other formats, I don't know too much to recommend. Did you use the software that came with the 1212 to make the DVDs?

I could not get this to work either, although others have, but I gave up and decided to use some ASUS O!Play - TV HD Media Players instead to play the files. I have made several DVDs using convertXtoDVD software. They are not HD, but end up very good SD.

Thanks for your response.

Yes, I did use the software that comes with the 1212. The software seems to work exactly the way it is supposed to work. It makes the DVDs, but they don't play in Blu-Ray players -- even though plenty of other people have used this system to make DVDs that do play in Blu-Ray players. I am doing the same thing that everyone else is doing. I am mystified why this does not work.

By the way, have you seen this problem discussed on any other message board?

No I haven't. But then again I'm not sure how much this is used really. Since the HD capacity of DVDs are so limited it reduces the overall usefulness. Movies, for example, will not fit on a 4.7 GB DVD even the raw data file. The double layer DVDs may work better.

I think most people who use the 1212s either use their HTPC or a media player to play the recorded files.

Maybe you could tell us what you are recording and why having a DVD that will play in your Blu-ray player is important for you.

I got a reply from Hauppauge tech support:

"The AVC-HD standard is a widely supported format but there are some
blue ray players that do not support it. Please consult with your blue ray
player instruction manual to see if it is supported."

My response:

If that is the case, wouldn't it be more honest if you added a list on
your web site that shows which Blu-Ray models will play the discs your
system creates, and which will not? On your FAQ you do not indicate
that there is any compatibility problem with some Blu-Ray models.

The only way for them to be able to do that would be to test every player that came out. That's why there are standards like the AVCHD standard so manufacturers don't have to test every piece of equipment for compatibility. Even still, some compatibility issues still come up, especially with HDMI compatibility, for example.

I have found that a number of videos I captured between late 2008 and mid-2009 won't burn. They will play on a PC, but will error out with a generic message (something like "there was an error creating your disc") when trying to burn them. It will happen when burning them to the hard disk, not just to Blu-rays or DVDs. It seems to be a problem with the audio - if I copy the M2TS file from the STREAMS folder before responding to the error prompt, the video is there but there's no audio. I capture with the Arcsoft TME capture module and burn using TME. I've tried both the bundled version of TME and the full version.

Videos I captured starting in the fall of 2009 don't have this problem, and it only affects some of the captures (about a third) before that time. I remember several software upgrades during 2009 and I'm wondering if some of the earlier versions were buggy. I'm stuck with quite a few videos that can't be burned as a result of this. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know of a way to fix any of these videos. I tried a couple of repair utilities, but they didn't fix any of the problem videos.

At my suggestion, Hauppauge added the following warning on their web site:

Note: Some older models of Blu-ray DVD players cannot play AVCHD files on either DVD-R or DVD+R discs. Check your owner's manual to see if your Blu-ray player is compatible. If it is not, check with the manufacturer to see if a firmware update is available.
