  1. Does not work: i click on “play ” and i get a loop f insert-nested screens, again and again and again… Also, IK do not know what the appropriate settings are (the step where u say input settings as u like, I do not know enough about video to know which settings are best. Please include settings here.

  2. When I press Record on the Xbox feature I get a message box telling me that my particular PC (a cheap refurb Dell) is not capable of this function. Is there another trick I can try, or a free piece of software available that will enable me to record video off my PC screen? Thank you.
