On my custom PC I am trying to set my El Gato HD Pro 60 up. I am using an older monitor, an Acer Al2002W. It only has two ports, one is plugged into the graphics card obviously with the other end plugged into the output I get nothing but a blank screen and silence when I try to record. What can I do so I can record? I got my editing software already (Vegas Pro).

Gday RebelGamer 137.

 

Unfortunately you will not be able to use that monitor as it is only capable of receiving analog signals;  the Elgato only produces digital signals, so they are not compatible. 

 

 

I will supply some links for future reference.

Before you begin, with only a monitor connected via HDMI cable. > set your screen resolution to a max of  1080p @ 60fps 

Install the software before the capture card.

 

You need two HDMI cables, the second one should match the one included with Elgato, a pass through cable, bi-directional HDMI cable.  This is a typical HDMI cable that can be connected in either direction.

First cable, connect one end to your graphics card port, > connect the other end to the Elgato  IN port.

Second cable, connect one end to the Elgato OUT port, > connect the other end to your monitor HDMI port.\

 

Please go to this page and review the installation guide to make sure you do it correctly, >https://help.elgato....apture-HD60-Pro

Then on the left, if you have not already got it, view the https://help.elgato....nd-User-s-Guide

 

I have not used the capture card or Vegas, I use CyberLink software for both tasks, but here's a page with some info you may make use of  > https://help.elgato....-edit-HDR-video

 

Pleas let us know how you get on.

I can look though some reviews for you and happen other members watching can suggest as well; some info would be useful.

In which country will you purchase?

Brand and model of your present GPU?

Max budget?

 

I am out today, so won't get back to you till this evening, my time.

I am trying to get one for under 200 if possible. I have a Radeon RX 4700 Graphics card and I am in the good old USA.

Best I think under $200 > https://www.newegg.c...N82E16824737004  curve screen.

Others are over you budget a little,m but better builds.

https://www.newegg.c...N82E16824475006 curved screen.

https://www.newegg.c...N82E16824475066 flat screen, note, sale item, ends in 2 days.

https://www.officede...24-Full-HD-LED/ My first choice, very hard to come by, most sellers sold out.

 

Monitors seem to come with DP cable now and not HDMI, reverse of from a couple of year ago, so you will still need a HDMI cable.

Look for reviews of the selected before you decide., let us know how you get on, and any questions.
