No Sound While Recording Using An Hdmi Splitter

Question

I play on a pc monitor that uses a hdmi-dvi cable from my xbox so I bought an HDMI splitter so I could record with the hd pro. My setup goes like this,

Output 1> HDMI> HD Pro

Xbox> HDMI cable> HDMI splitter>

Output 2> HDMI to DVI> Pc monitor

 

 

Why do I still have no sound while recording?

a ) Your splitter doesn't passthrough the sound

b ) You didn't setup the settings on your Xbox correctly.

...meaning you never have had Audio in your recording???

 

Why the splitter?

 

Why not simply follow the recommended setup:

When I was using the device with a tv it worked fine, but when I hooked it up ( I did follow the recommended setup) to my monitor via HDMI-DVI cable I got no signal on my monitor, however I was still able to record albeit blindly. It didn't matter what I did, I could not get a signal on my monitor going through the device itself. I got a splitter so I was able to play on my monitor and record it, which works fine but I have no sound.

 

Could this be the fault of the HDMI-DVI cable? Could it be that because it doesn't carry an audio signal its telling the splitter to do the same? Would I get a different result if used a HDMI-DVI adapter instead of the cable itself, or would it not make a difference?

 

 

 

 

EDIT: Used an HDMI-DVI adapter still no signal

splitter works fine

 

what setting would need to be changed?

How do you know the splitter works fine? What test did you do that proved to you that it's passing the audio through?

xstevez needs to draw us a pic how he is connected and post it.

His original post does lay it out fairly well. But that doesn't show how he would know that the splitter is working fine except for the video. It would be nice to know the make and model of the splitter too.

DVI does not carry Audio, you need another connection for that

 

I know that, thats the reason for the splitter...

 

Go back to post #1, then post # 6 & 7.

 

Is it still laid out fairly well to you?

Yes, I see the inconsistencies there, but if he has what he's put in the first post, then he wouldn't have audio at the PC monitor (which probably doesn't have speakers anyway) but I don't see why he wouldn't have audio at the Game Capture device.

 

So, yes, we need to know what test he's done to prove that the splitter actually works, and know what make/model of splitter might help us too.

3 people suspect the splitter but xstevez wants us to just believe him that the splitter is OK... ;)

 

THERE IS NO other reason why audio wouldn't work.

Sorry for taking so long to reply (Internet was knocked out) My splitter works fine, before applying it for this I used it for my blu-ray player. a link to it is here-> http://www.amazon.com/Sewell-Powered-Splitter-Certified-Up-1080p/dp/B003B4O7NS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377629271&sr=8-1&keywords=sewell+hdmi+splitter

 

My monitor does have speakers built in, there's an audio-in-jack in the back. I used my 360 audio dongle I use to use my headset with my system to try and get sound that way but it didnt work and I found my speakers aren't the best.

Monitor-> http://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-VA2212M-LED-22-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B008ABO0P2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377629914&sr=8-1&keywords=viewsonic+va2212m-led+22-inch+led-lit+monitor

However, after reading the user manual of the splitter it say in the last section- "If the maximum resolution of the two displays supported is not the same, the splitter will display at the lower of the two resolutions" Now, if the splitter can do that is it possible that it can also detect that no audio is being carried to one of the outputs so it restricts the audio to the other source? So yes it,could be the splitter. Under normal use, it performs fine but for my adapted use it doesn't fully work. Im suspecting thats what happened in my case.

Can you try this test: take the splitter out of the configuration, just for a test, and only hook up directly to the Game Capture unit. You won't be able to "play" because of the lag, but you can get a test recording to see if you get audio.

 

Now put the splitter back in, but only connect the Game Capture unit, don't put in a second HDMI cable, and see what happens with that.

 

Another question, why are you using the splitter instead of the pass-thru connector on the Game Capture unit? (As in: XBox -> HDMI -> Game Capture -> HDMI/DVI adapter -> Monitor.)
