    When I'm trying to record something in theater mode it looks good and smooth and hd. But when I record it with Elgato it says "deinterlacing" and after that it looks laggy / crappy / not hd. I need to record good Black Ops 2 material with my ps3 / elgato please help me!

    I heard that with ps3 you can get the quality better with some other wires, can someone explain how?

    If you need anything else like my settings or computer specs please tell me!

    I'm using Mac by the way.

    Please help! :confused::eek::confused:

    Sounds like a configuration issue in your recording software/configuration.

    There is no reason to deinterlace the video as it's a progressive signal (ie: 1080P) and you want to record it as a progressive signal (1080P).

    As far as cables go, that device doesn't appear to offer an input options. Looks like you should be using an HDMI cable. For the most part, HDMI cables either work or they don't.

    Yes but for ps3 you can't use hdmi with elgato. You have to use AV cable I think.

    I don't know as I've not used one.

    If you are using the AV cable, and not HDMI, then the signal is likely interlaced, and it's also not 1080P. So lower your capture resolution.

    For 720P/1080P you have to use HDMI. The AV output is likely just 480i/P. Check the PS3 User Manual.
