As you know by now, YouTube now supports 60FPS uploads but only up to 1080p and so far only one capture card can support both (for consoles). While this is not a concern to me, what is a concern is that I can only record 60fps up to 720P. I'm aware that most capture cards, when set to 1080P, can only record up to 30fps. While I understand that, what I don't understand is that when the console resolution is set to 1080P, even after setting the software recording resolution to 720P, it still records at 30fps, but when I set the console resolution to 720P, it can record in 60fps. (Keep in mind that all of this is done on HDMI.) The questions I have in mind are:
Does this only happen to Wii U?
Is it due to the HDMI? Should I switch to Component?
Is this a hardware or software issue with the capture card?
Any and all feedback are well appreciated.
