So just to be clear it could send audio to the monitor and to the headset at the same time? Or would I need to switch between them? I would prefer not to manually switch inputs.
Like I said I don't have a lot of experience with receivers so any more information is appreciated.

As in "monitor" I was referring to where the outputs would go since a monitor (TV or otherwise) could handle both audio and video. That wasn't the real point of my question though which was, "Would the audio be able to go to both the headset and other output?" I'm guessing yes?

I appreciate your responses but you seem to think I know about AVR's while I have said a couple of times that I don't know much about them. I will look into the Denon thanks you again.

Which is exactly what I wanted, thank you. It's just because I don't know much about AVR's I wouldn't know that the AVR would simultaneous signals or not. I guess what I'm saying is explaining what a zone is and how it helps would help beginners more than saying you need A, B and C alone.
Anyways I did have a remaining question. What about HDCP? Does the AVR output non-HDCP or would I need to use component out to the HDPVR 2? I noticed that it lists 1 component output that I could use instead.

Gameplay. The Xbox records over HDMI but the PS3 without stripping HDCP needs to record over component. I could probably use the component input I notice it has two of those as well. I would only need one component input as I only record on one of the PS3's.

That is what I would do. The only question will be if the AVR can do simultaneous HDMI and component video output.
That is probably not even mentioned in the manual...either way. You'd just have to hook it up and try. IF not, your recording device probably has the ability to pass signal while recording it.

This increases your budget a bunch, but...
The AVR4520 would allow simultaneous HDMI and component video output(while bringing in the PS3 over component) because it also has Zone 2 component output(which will work at the same time).

My capture card does have both HDMI and component in so I could directly hook up the component PS3 to it and switch between that and HDMI. As an alternative I was thinking about a component to HDMI converter for the PS3 that requires. Though I am not sure how well this would work.
A fast search revealed this when I was thinking about it: http://www.amazon.ca...r/dp/B003U7LKUE
Thank you for the other link. When I get around to it I was also thinking about posting a connection diagram and get your input and verify that it would work. I haven't done that yet though.

My ultimate goal would be to have the capture card either between the sources and the TV or have it exist alongside the TV. I assume I could do the second option right? Have the AVR output to the TV and the capture card at the same time? Or was that only for audio?
Posted October 31 2013 - 05:39 PM
With the 4520...not sure why you would need the component converter. Or is playing on the PS3 HDCP?
Posted October 31 2013 - 05:58 PM
I wouldn't need it for the 4520 but if I did not get that AVR using the converter for that single system I thought would be better price-wise.
Over HDMI the PS3 has HDCP. The only way you can record PS3 gameplay is by either splitting the HDMI to DVI and Optical (using a DVI and Optical to HDMI converter) or by using component. Component is easier and less hassle which is why I was thinking about the converter for any other AVR.
What I was asking is if I could output 2 HDMI sources: one to the TV and one to the capture using the Denon or with AVR's in general. Is simultaneous output to 2 HDMI outputs possible with AVR's in general (or specifically the Denon you mention)?
I wouldn't mind running through the capture card first before going the TV but I was just wondering if this is a possibility. This way the capture card could malfunction but I would maintain a signal on the TV. I am just not sure if that would work.

As an update I will probably get the Denon you mentioned. In the short term I did a quick analog workaround to get some of my devices to my headset. This was pretty cheap so that I could save for the more expensive receiver.
I have an additional question though. Some headsets don't have a detachable boom mic and I want my mic on the right of my head. What I have done now is just reversed the left and right RCA inputs. However I may look into a digital headset after the receiver so my question is (in general) would I be able to reverse the left and right audio using the receiver through an optical out?

Only if you turn the headphones around on your head.
