I Need To Capture Hdmi Video While Capturing Rca Audio

Question

I saw one or two reviews of your HD PRO on youtube. I had to sell my hauppauge colossus hdpvr because it only had hdmi input and not hdmi output for a passthrough. My problem is I want to do video game recordings of the sega dreamcast. Most serious owners of the sega dreamcast have a VGA adapter like this:

VGA can easily be turned into a HDMI signal which allows the dreamcast to have 480p crisp picture quality over the default crappy composite cables that work but most of us are picky as its the only real way to compete with more modern consoles.

 

I'm hoping you guys could make this option availbile through software? I saw in the capture software you can only choose one input which is for both audio and video. I need the option to pick different video and audio signals. I also used this feature with my PC video game recordings on the hauppauge collasus since it doesnt have a HDMI passthrough I was able to duplicate the video to both the tv and the capture card tricking it into the thinking the capture card was a second monitor. In windows you can only have one audio output at once so I used my audio interface to split the audio.

 

Please make this feature available or ill have to look elsewhere. I will probably buy another capture card because of this.

There are a few options for you but none of them are "easy".

 

My 1st recommendation - buy the Roxio non-HD game cap card and just use VGA. Is the 480p really that much better than the VGA signal? Seems to me you are going to have to go through a lot of hassle just to convert your VGA to HDMI and THEN find a way to also capture the audio.

 

2nd: You can record your RCA audio during gameplay to your PC. Then using the Roxio VideoWave software - you can overlay that audio onto the recorded video very easily. It might take some tweaking to get the timing exact.

 

3rd: Go back to using the Hauppauge. Use an HDMI splitter to split the output to both the Hauppauge and your TV. They are very cheap and easy to use.

yes i probably should have gotten a splitter. i got turned off by them after reading reviews of most of them failing, overheating, having poor picture quality etc. im sure the passthrough is a splitter though anyway right lol. its too late for that now. i may just suck it up and buy Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition or

Elgato Game Capture HD
