    I received my RetroTINK 2x Pro yesterday. I love how it works. I have achieved an amazing result on Nintendo 64. However, I had a problem that I did not expect:

    When I connect it to my Hauppauge HD PVR 2 video recorder, I can capture video without problem, but I cannot split the HDMI signal to connect it to a monitor or TV while capturing. This makes it very difficult to capture something decent, due to the lag of the capturer. I have tried different settings, but the result is always the same. It’s like the video recorder is not capable of dividing the HDMI signal. I can only capture video on the PC, but I can’t get the image to a monitor or TV.

    I don’t know if this is a RetroTINK x2 Pro problem or just that my video capture device is not supported. Does anyone else have this problem? Do you know any video recorder compatible with RetroTINK x2 Pro? I was thinking on updating my video recorder and before doing it I wanted to make sure that this is compatible with RetroTINK x2 Pro.

    Thank you.


    Which HDMI splitter do you have? There should be no issues, RetroTINK does not use HDCP.


    I don’t use any HDMI splitter, only Hauppauge HD PVR 2 (it splits the signal, but can’t handle RetroTINK, I don’t know why). I connect RetroTINK into the INPUT connection in my video capturer, and my TV goes into the OUTPUT. Input works fine, the game looks amazing in capture software, but can’t handle the output. Hauppauge HD PVR 2 needs 3 seconds to process the video, so I can’t play while capturing. I’m thinking if an HDMI splitter can solve it connecting to the Retrotink output and then, driving the signal to the capturer and the tv. In the other hand, maybe I just need another video capturer.

    As you can see, it seems like PVR 2 is not working at all with RetroTINK:


    Finally I bought an HDMI splitter in Amazon and it solved my problem
