Quick question as I was not able to find the answer by searching this thread or google search but does the HDMI OUT MAIN for the TX-NR809 receiver output audio and video or just video?
The reason why is I'm using an Elgato Game Capture HD external capture card to record video from my PS3, and also using an HDMI splitter before it goes into the HDMI in on the Elgato: PS3 > ViewHD HDMI Mini Splitter > [Output 1] to HDMI Input on Onkyo TX-NR809 reciver & [Output 2] to Elgato HD & PC USB.
Everything worked fine and dandy that way, but I wanted to be able to capture anything with the Elgato going to the receiver because I have PS3, PS4, Steam Link, and RetroPie hooked up to the receiver's various inputs.
I know the Onkyo has the HDCP, so I unhooked the PS3 only setup and now have it set like this:
Onkyo TX-NR809 receiver HDMI OUT MAIN > Input on ViewHD HDMI Mini Splitter > [Output 1] to HDMI Input on LG TV & [Output 2] to Elgato HD & PC USB
So everything works great in 1080P with the video, but I get no audio at all. I suspect it's because the Onkyo is not outputting any audio at all over the HDMI. Is this by design or is there a receiver setting I am missing somewhere on this? I don't believe it's a setting on the Elgato as it worked fine before I had the splitter and the elgato on the HDMI in. Or does anyone have any suggestions for any workarounds?
Thanks in advance
This is the HDMI splitter I am using: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004F9LVXC/
