It works... except, it's useless.
The issue is that there is a very discernible audio lag when the PS4 sends the Vita a Dolby Digital (more specifically, DH). This is why the PS4 attemps to always just send a pure 2.0 PCM audio to the Vita.
Then the other issue is that Remote Play isn't 1:1 between the Vita and PS4 like the Wii U (heh I know). Lots of instance where dropouts in audio occurs, which basically makes DH useless.
Thanks for the info. I didn't even think about the separation of sound and video. Been wanting a vita since long before launch. Too bad it looks like I was rightback then about it being doa.
Amazing job on the article Envy.
I knew nothing about the mix amp pro before reading through it.
Now on to my setup and questions!
I game mainly on the ps3 and ps4. My headphone setup is the V-Moda Crossfade LP2 (saving for the M100's) with the boompro mic.
Now, for best sound quality, and still having mic capabilities, I assume I'd use one of the amps mentioned (likely the mix amp pro), hooked up to either in the way outlined in astro's instructions?
Now, is there any possible way to connect the ps3 and ps4 both to the mix amp pro while retaining functionality? I'd rather not have to constantly swap cables, but I'd also rather not have to buy two mix amp pros...
I currently have my whole setup hooked up through my receiver and home theater system, so when I'm not using the mix amp setup, I just change the sound output back to hdmi in the ps3/4 menus to output through the receiver, correct?
Thanks in advance.
You would need to get a powered switcher. Far as I know all the toggle switchers he has tried failed.
I don't own this one but it is the one recommended to me.
