    Sound only works when balanced left or right

    There probably is something wrong with that port, but I highly doubt that every input is broken. Try the other inputs, 3.5mm to dual RCA should do the trick: https://www.amazon.com/UGREEN-3-5mm-Auxiliary-Stereo-Splitter/dp/B00LM2Y2U4/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1544636038&sr=8-9&keywords=3.5mm+to+rca

    Do you have the model of said receiver? Which port are you using?

    Audio Passthrough?

    I can't speak for every combo unit but as I mentioned previously, every one that I've tried doesn't have proper EDID functionality. Meaning as you switch between devices the other device still thinks it's connected, and daisy chaining them produces other oddities. Additionally this switch only supports 1080p which may be fine for now, but I think it best to future proof. All that being said, Amazon has a great return policy, if you find anything doesn't fit your needs you can return it. Basically how I got all my knowledge on switches and extractors, though everything I've tested is 4K60 444.

    Have you tried using a different device or the back audio port instead of the front? It sounds like you're sending a stereo signal into a mono input, could be the cable too. Could you upload a few pictures of everything?

    Single 240mm for 9900K and 2080?...

    I would not go with any less than 360mm for a loop containing a 9900K and a RTX 2080, and even then I'd go with upper end radiators. What case is it, impossible to do a 240mm and a 120mm?

    Surface Book 2 PSU

    Pictures and the link of the product you purchased would be nice.

    Two GPUs compatibility ?

    I've heard about running a Quadro in tandem with a consumer card in the same system for encoding purposes but the load is never shared. I would assume you can't distribute the same process across the two, but I know relatively little about Quadros.

    Audio Passthrough?

    No problem, and yup that's how it works! The HDMI signal passed through will still contain the audio signal also, not that that matters in this scenario.

    Audio Passthrough?

    I'd pick up these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076GDVWG4/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Extractor-Converter-Passthrough/dp/B074HHSJVN/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1543597756&sr=8-6&keywords=hdmi+2.0+switch+with+audio+out Run whatever you want into the switch, through the audio extractor and then into the monitor, the extractor gives you analog and digital audio output. You can find a switch that handles both the function of switching and audio extraction but I have yet to find one that has proper EDID functionality, I run this combo for my consoles / a few other devices and it works perfectly. Both devices are HDMI 2.0 so you shouldn't run into any bandwidth issues for the foreseeable future.
  10. Yeah the extension isn't carrying the mic signal you need a TRRS: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RXNUXGS/ref=twister_B01611VL68?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 If when you bypass the extension, just use the splitter, and things still don't work the splitter may not be properly routed. It's strange that they are colored red in white, which usually signifies left and right. One of these should work: https://www.amazon.com/MillSO-3-5mm-Jack-Adapter-CTIA/dp/B071NDLCGC/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1543528117&sr=1-4&keywords=mic+headphone+splitter

    Xenyx 302USB Setup

    I'm assuming you have the board plugged in via USB, you'll need your desktop audio to output via USB or it will loopback into the input. If you're hearing the mic it should be working, are you saying you don't see any visual feedback under the recording tab in windows sound settings?

    Audio Passthrough?

    Bit confused, what monitor and soundbar do you have? How is the PC connected to the soundbar?

    Yamaha HS5 or JBL 305P MkII ?

    I agree with @xtroria, I can't speak for the JBL monitors but HS5 monitors sound a bit "empty" without a subwoofer. However if you also pick up a sub things are getting a bit pricey at this point, furthermore like @Niksa suggested plugging noisy / unbalanced on-board audio into highly sensitive studio monitors is typically ill-advised. To run them properly you'll eventually want an interface which adds more cost, and while I believe my HS5 + HS8 sub combo sounds great for ingesting media they're best used to create it. It would seem you're okay with stereo audio (considering the monitors), I would honestly give Logitech Z623 a try, they're pretty cheap everywhere right now and I think you'll be surprised by the quality to cost ratio. Unless you got money to blow.
  14. Just to quickly explain my use case - I encode 3 video streams (PC gameplay, console gameplay, camera) simultaneously via FFmpeg. This allows me to keep the each "stream" completely separate for non-destructive mixing / post production, as opposed to recording with something like OBS which burns each video stream into a single feed. Currently I have to encode one of the video streams via CPU because I can only encode 2 of them with my GTX 1080 due to an encode limit imposed on GTX / RTX cards by NVIDIA. First and foremost this greatly reduces the quality of my third video stream due to other processes using up my CPU while recording, if I could encode all streams via GPU the third stream would go from a 30M bitrate to a 250M bitrate. This limit also forces me to export multiple files as opposed to a single properly mapped file containing all audio and video streams, which makes synchronization and ease of use a nightmare. Before actually considering a comparable Quadro which has no encode session limit I thought I'd do a quick search to see if anyone has bypassed said limit on GTX / RTX cards, and I came across this Github repository: https://github.com/keylase/nvidia-patch I was always under the impression that the encode limit was hardware imposed, but this would suggest otherwise. Sound like several users are already using this patch to bypass the limit for use with their plex servers, but the only caveat is it's Linux only... I have many hardware incompatibilities with Linux so migrating isn't an option for me, not to mention the difficulty of moving from Directshow to something in Linux. After searching some more I found this repository which seems to work with Windows: https://github.com/Matviy/nvidia-NVENC-multi-session-patch Unfortunately it looks like it's no longer maintained and I can't make sense of the instructions. Anybody understand what's going on here? Seems like some fairly high level stuff and I'm assuming no one here has the know how but there's no harm in asking.

    Yamaha MG10XU will this setup work?

    Definitely sounds like their donor board just has some unusual issues.
