Avermedia Live Gamer HD with a 144Hz monitor problem

Hello again everybody. I didn't manage to find a solution yet so I thought I'd try asking one more time. I'm considering purchasing the avermedia live gamer hd so I could record footage without the fps drop.

The problem here is it only takes an hdmi input so if I run a signal through it as yur supposed to when recording, the output gets downgraded to 60hz.

Because I use a crossfired pair of 7970s, duplicating my monitors doesn't work when I'm running a game (an issue apparently that amd has yet to fix).

I was wondering if a solution would be to run a dvi-d splitter directly out of my video card and send one output to my monitor and on the second output put a dvi-d to hdmi adapter which would connect directly to the capture card. Would this allow me to maintain my 144hz signal to my monitor while the capture card also receives the signal and records it. Essentially I'm just trying to eliminate the need for passing the signal through the card to my monitor.

I've been searching for a solution for this problem for quite some time and any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Also, if this trick works, would a simple splitter such as this

work for what I intended or would I need something more sophisticated?

I don't see why a splitter shouldn't work, as for the one you listed, don't go with that, you want to get one with DVI-I, not DVI-D. It is possible that you might get some signal degradation, but how much is really dependent on your system.

very good to know. Thanks for the reply! Is there anything i can do to minimize the signal degradation? What factors would contribute to that? I just want to be able to load youtube vids in 1080p that are at least on par with the majority of the hd gaming vids that are up there.

Well signal degradation will be mostly caused by the fact that the splitter is splitting your electronic signals, which means the overall current running to each monitor will be decreased and more interference prone. You may be able to find a splitter that has an integrated repeater or power booster, but it will be more expensive. I'd say get a relatively cheap splitter and try it out, if you notice major quality loss look to a more expensive option.

Just came across this as I am looking at this as well. The DVI-D, dual link, is required to get 120/144hz if I am not mistaken. If you go with a different cable, won't you just be downgrading to 60hz? I think you want the plug you linked and a DVI (or DVI-D) to hdmi for that card. The DVI would just put it to 60 hz that the card captures at. I am pretty sure this is correct.. ha.
