So I recently discovered that I can capture my Nintendo 64 on my Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition. So I sent it up as it made sense to me. Audio Red to Red, White to White, then put the yellow composite in the blue component.
It does pass through the HDMI to the TV, and comes to my computer just fine. The only issue I’m running into is that it isn’t displaying quite right. At first I thought this might be because of the HDMI passthrough. Which would make sense. The N64 was never meant to come out HDMI. And I initially thought that would be fine as long as the recorded footage itself looked okay. This was not the case.
My recorded footage looks the same as it’s appearing on the TV. Now obviously I could emulate for my LP if I wanted. But there’s a save file I want to work with on my own N64 cartridge. I’ve tried rehooking things up. Checked all my settings and everything, but I’m not finding a solution to this one.
I’m going to continue my research. But if anyone has any solution they might already know from experience or just stumbling upon it, it’d help me out a ton.
