So im having audio issues with my video capture setup, my setup consists of..... TV Game Console A/V AMP HDMI Audio Extractor (also strips hdcp) Multi Channel DAC Capture device Now i basically need these extra devices to strip the hdcp and also grab the audio for the HDMI and then feed this (via toslink) to my FiiO D07 DAC to downmix the 5.1 audio (from my Amp) to stereo for my capture, because of this im not using the audio over the HDMI but instead breaking it out from the HDMI Audio Extractor device to a toslink cable which is in-turn feeds to my multi-channel DAC and then from that via phone cables (left and right) is feed into my capture card, so my video is coming from the HDMI and audio over analog (phono). Now up until just last week this has been working fine but now the audio has become super hot, distorted and clips a lot and im not sure why. I have tried replacing the, HDMI Audio Extractor, DAC and also tried a different capture device and these all result in have the same issue, the only time i dont have the issue is if i just use the audio over the HDMI cable thus removing the toslink from the equation when i use the HDMI for both video and audio the audio is fine as demostrated by these 2 videos..... HDMI HDMI AudioWatch this video on YouTube Phono Phono AudioWatch this video on YouTube So this only leaves the Toslink cable or the phono cable that could be cause the issue right, as i have replace every other part of the setup (minus the AMP itself). Could a faulty Toslink or Phono cable cause audio issues like this??
