The device's Advanced Pass Through mode, easy to use controls, and flexible audio input options also set it apart from most other USB capture devices. I do appreciate that EVGA tried to do something different, and while it's not something I'll use a lot, the extra audio features on hand have been extremely useful in some cases. The XR1, then, is an intriguing product, and as it came with the first "OBS Certified" sticker on the box, you'll be thinking it brings a big game. In future I would like to test out the XR1 PRO, if for no other reason than to see if it retains the UVC driver support of the original, but I did at least verify that the initial XR1 is a useful USB 3. However, because the headset microphone does not route back into the Source system, a second microphone needs to be connected into the source system for your party to hear you.

It also limits those streamers utilizing two PC streaming setups, especially if they are streaming at 4K60, or even just capturing high-quality video for an upcoming YouTube creation. Ultimately, you are going to be stuck with a maximum of 60 Hz refresh support at 4K or 1080p when the device is active. The EVGA XR1 Capture Device has secretly been in use on our weekly streams for weeks without hiccups.Because Sony thought it a good idea to block HDMI game audio when a headset is connected, you need a way to hear the game audio as well as output the video to OBS to handle. There was no frame skipping, color compression, bitrate compression issues or color inaccuracy issues present. The two system setup remains smooth with similar frame render times to the 18000 kbps Very Fast preset.

Additionally, the card recognized I was connected to an HDR monitor and allowed the capture through without any issues, artefacting, or washed-out color, giving me the vibrant picture I'd expect even if there wasn't a pass-through happening. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The headphone output on the XR1 really came into its own here, solving a problem that shouldn't exist. Sure, I could have been unlucky and it was just faulty, but it doesn't feel like a quality item anyway.This same Olympus camera setups have worked properly at 1080p and 4K with an array of Elgato, and off-brand, inexpensive knock-off brand capture devices.

OBS offers various recording formats and compression levels, or you can keep it lossless (if you have Allyn Malventano-level storage available). By default, Windows will not allow users to set the desktop resolution to 2560x1440 when capturing via the XR1. Yes, if you get your hands on the XR1 you aren’t just getting a game capture device with similar features to other USB 3. YUY2 is the preferred video format to capture in due to its greater visual integrity, lower latency, and capability for higher fidelity video.As mentioned, users can switch between capture and APT modes by pressing and holding the control dial in for about 3 seconds, until the lighting changes. Customizable RGB LEDS and built in audio mixer controls at your fingertips with the EVGA XR1 Pro control dial. As such, it works in a true plug-and-play fashion, completely driverless regardless of the platform (Windows, macOS, or Linux). After an hour of trying to figure out why there was no video in OBS, I threw the cable in the bin and replaced it.
