Hello, I have a PS5 and want to game at  and record on my xr1 at . 
If I use an HDMI splitter that takes my PS5 in and outputs to my 120hz capable monitor (as the primary) and to my XR1, will the XR1 downscale a 120hz input to 60hz or will it not pick up the signal?
 
If the input device to the XR1 is pushing 120hz will the XR1 downscale or not pick up the video?

    When using the XR1 to capture gameplay, the signal will be downgraded to 60hz.

    What HDMI splitter are you using? In general splitting is not a easy thing to do.

    Keep in mind that if you activate the Advanced pass through mode it will not give you a preview in OBS.

    I wish the above information was true. When forcing 120hz into the EVGA XR1 it DOES NOT downscale to 60hz. It gives a large amount of display issues or doesn't display anything. Are there any fixes for this?
     
    My setup. PS5 to EDID splitter (copies monitor EDID ) HDMI out 1 goes to monitor, HDMI out 2 goes to EVGA XR1.
     
    I believe this to be a software issue as other products allow this setup (an Elgato product and AVerMedia). Would it be possible for a driver update to force the input to downscale to
     
    You allow  4k at 60hz (14.93 Gbps) to downscale to 1080p at 60hz (3.73 Gbps), why not allow  1080p at 120hz (7.46 Gbps) to downscale to  1080p at 60hz (3.73 Gbps)

    Is the XR1 connected directly to the computer? As in no USB hub used? Also, is it plugged into the front USB ports or directly to the mobo via rear USB ports?
