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).
Setting up an El Gato HD60 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.

Got a recommendation for a good monitor that is reasonably priced that works with an El Gato?

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?

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.
