  • I can't make the LGP stop while recording under PC-free mode


    "On start-up it boots up to the solid red color, and I can press the hot button to begin recording which starts the red "breathing" LED lights.
    However, after that, I cannot stop recording by pressing the hot button, and the only way to stop the "breathing" red light, is to turn off my console, or switch it to another mode. Every time I've tried, I end up not having any recordings saved."
    Am I doing something wrong or some firmware issue/defective unit?

    Why & solution:

    It keeps rotating the light quickly in PC-Free mode is because of Wii U's power supply. We have found that some Wii U (certain versions of its firmware) are not capable enough for powering sufficient/stable current to operate LGP correctly, so we recommend you to use the included USB2.0 cable & insert your LGP into another stable power supply (e.g. portable power supply, PC, or your laptop) to keep LGP from potential malfunction.

  • PS3 won't display on TV / How to connect & setup PS3 and LGP

    In some cases, when you connect PS3 with LGP via component input and startup RECentral for the first time, you may see a blank screen with “Out of Range”, or “No Signal” message displayed in RECentral preview screen. Closing down RECentral, then restarting RECentral again will solve this issue for good.

    Please see PS3 connection video tutorial for detail settings:  


  • USB Headsets supporting alternative while using LGP

    You might encounter this situation if you are using a USB headset that has its own soundcard. This is because USB headsets are not supported in C875 and RECentral yet. Please follow the steps below:

    1. Step 1. Open your Control Panel > Sound
    2. Step 2. Set your sound-card as default device in Playback tab

      *please note that you have to set the soundcard's speaker as default for Stereo Mix, do not use your graphics card's HDMI audio (your soundcard's stereo mix will get no audio).

    3. Step 3. Change your tab to Recording, then set your Stereo Mix as default device, and click the Stereo Mix's Properties.

      ** If you don’t have the “Stereo Mix” in your tabs, please make sure you have installed all the drivers for your soundcard (motherboard), or you can right-click to tick the “show disable devices” & “show disconnected devices”)

    4. Step 4. Change the tab to Listen in properties, and enable the “Listen to this device", then select the “Playback through this device” to your USB audio device, click OK.

    After finishing the above steps, you should be able to hear your audio from soundcard and usb devices.

    Please also note:

    a. Connect your soundcard to LGP with 3.5mm audio cable.

    b. Select "Audio In" for your audio source in RECentral.

    c. If your USB device supports stereo mix, you can try to set your USB device as main, and playback your USB's stereo mix to soundcard.
