Here's my issue:

I have an Elgato Game Capture HD and recently got a 5.1 surround sound system. I want to enjoy my new surround system while also recording my game footage, BUT the Game Capture HD does not accept DD or DTS surround sound streams.

Has anyone else with this device ran into this problem? What are my options here?

I contacted Elgato about this i got this response. It's a little bit annoying...i'm thinking of maybe trying the Elgato after my audio receiver or getting an HDMI splitter NEET 2 Way HDMI Splitter). Will let you know which way i go.

Thank you for contacting Elgato Systems.

The current Elgato Game Capture HD hardware and software only support stereo audio. They doesn't support Dolby Digital or multi-channel audio.

We're not able to publicly speculate about potential future updates or products.

I'll pass on your request for more audio options to our team.

I tried putting the Elgato after my Onkyo but before the TV and wasn't able to get a picture. Will probably pick up a splitter off ebay and try that next.

(image has different receiver, oddly worked for him just no sound)
