Why don't you just use the 3.5mm analog audio output from the OSSC to feed the receiver?

That would only work if the he was solely using AV1; it won't have any audio from AV3, and using that jack for AV1 audio out prevents it from being used for audio in for AV2.

Just wanna confirm that the setup listed in the OP can pass that signal through fine without needing to dejitter mod my consoles. I currently have my ossc plugged directly into the TV, but the TV has no audio out so I can't connect it to my 70s receiver like I want.

If you get the Vorke HD41Pro switcher, you can turn on its ARC feature and use its 3.5mm TRS jack to feed audio into your stereo receiver. I have this switcher and an unmodded NES (and an RGB decoder), but personally haven't used the switcher's ARC feature (I have an HDMI-capable AVR), and I unfortunately wouldn't be able to test it until sometime next week.

Sorry, your wording is confusing there. Do you have a NES with a NESRGB board installed, fed into an ossc and out through the Vorke without the jitter issues?

I have an entirely stock NTSC front-loader NES and a Kramer FC-4044 RGB decoder. The original composite output of the NES would be run into the RGB decoder and converted to YPbPr for the OSSC. As far as I know, the FC-4044 predates Kramer's digital processing, so it doesn't screw with 240p, and it shouldn't screw with the sync.

Jesus, get over yourself, it was a joke If the question was that simple, you wouldn't need assistance answering it would you?

My time sleuth came in and I can give another confirmation that the denon 3500h adds zero lag when processing is off. I didn't explore it much but initial testing with the processor on added 40ms.

Also found out just how God awful my tvs are with 480i content. One older panasonic plasma was over 109ms. I'm looking forward to seeing the results with my small collection of video processors.

The time sleuth is an expensive toy with far too few profile settings but it sure is a welcome tool. Takes all the guess work out

Ive done a bit of research on the issue i was having with the few splitters ive tried not accepting an 5.1/7.1 PCM audio signal and just DD or DTS, now i know this isnt really an issue where the OSSC is involved but thought id mention it anyway. It would appear a ot of these splitters dont have a very sophisticated EDID implementation, when only using a 1080p source then there doesnt seem to be an issue its when you push it up to 4K it then cant support a PCM audio output. I will try and get a spiltter that has the EDID jumpers on the device and see if they are any better


Hi, i just bricked my VORKE HD41 pro using their officially provided firmware/tool aswell. Can you please provide me your bin dump? Thx

One more update from me. For the ViewHD splitter recommended in the OP, definitely put that after all the switchers, at least if you want auto switching to work. I tried putting it between two switchers and even just between my PS4 and the switcher and it causes some issues there. Namely, I think that it doesn't output any signal from the splitter until it gets the EDID info from the display, but it can't do that until the switcher changes to that input and the switcher won't do that without signal from the splitter. Bit of an endless fail loop :p So anyway, splitter at the end of the chain works best.

The ViewHD switch is great indeed, but here in Europe it's hard to find under the ViewHD branding. Instead it's available under the "VORKE" branding (under 60 EUR on Amazon). It's the identical unit and performs nicely.


I think all of these that look like this (rs232, IR, toslink) use the same internals with the same stm32 arm core and hdmi switch chips,

I stupidly tried to update the firmware on my Vorke model from their website, all it does is brick the unit.

The swclk and swdio pins are exposed on the pcb for the stm32, I was going to try getting a stm32 programmer and flashing the firmware manually.

Not sure if it will work, but the programmer is like 7$ so it's worth a shot, Vorke has 0 customer service. They will absolutely not help you with the unit even though they provide the tools to update/brick your switch.


So I was able to dump the flash from a 2nd ViewHD/VORKE switch and then flash my bricked unit, and all is working again. I can provide the bin to anyone who bricked their unit trying to update it like I did. All you need is a cheap STM32 USB programmer.


Hi, I also bricked my switch trying to upgrade it. Could you send me your firmware dump. Thanks.

Did anyone ever find cheap 5x splitter that works with OSSC? I'm not spending $50 on splitter that is nuts lol

You could try buying splitters on Amazon and returning them if they don't work. 5-way splitters seem to be a bit rare, but here's an 8-way for $40.

By the way, what do you need a 5-way splitter for? Capture plus four simultaneous monitors?

If you meant to say switcher, the Smartooo or whatever they call themselves now that I recommended earlier in the thread is working great for me and that's a 5x1. I use two of them now.

If you're willing to spend money on the OSSC, why not also spend on a good quality switch known to work well with it?

Is anyone aware of an HDMI switcher where one of the inputs is an ARC uplink port? I can't seem to find any advertising ARC support that simply aren't switchers with built-in audio extractors.

My setup is a little awkward in that I have the TV (which doesn't support ARC) at the front of the room, and then everything else (AVR, consoles, related AV and networking gear) is on the left-hand side of the room, separated by a doorway. I have an active HDMI cable (which does support ARC), an Ethernet cable, and speaker wires crossing the doorway through a rubber cord cover, which is completely full.

What I'd like to do is move some of my consoles, namely the wireless ones (PS3, Xbox 360s, Xbox One), and the Roku to the front of the room, where the TV is, but I'd have no way to get the audio back to the AVR. If I could move the AVR to the front of the room, I would, but there isn't a shelf or surface deep enough to accommodate it.
