How to use HDMI & other video input sources with OptiSigns

It can be useful to split up your screens with part of Live TV, HDMI in, and part display of other information.

You will need a USB video capture device like this one plugged into your Windows PC, and connect your TV set-top box HDMI cable to the USB capture device.

Make sure you are running the latest version of OptiSigns Player on that box (the minimum required version is 4.2.15)
We recommend a minimum PC with Intel i5 CPU or better like this BeeLink Mini PC.

Let's jump in and get started:

Then go to

Click Files/Assets -> Apps

Then find the Live TV app:

Give it a name and click Save

Then you can put this TV app in a Playlist or a Zone of your SplitScreen.

That's all! Congratulation!

When you assign the SplitScreen to your Windows Mini PC it will play the video input and other split-screen content.

Troubleshooting common problems:

1) Make sure your USB device is working and showing content in other apps like OBS Streaming.

2) Troubleshoot, and change video, and audio sources by going to OptiSigns Player's side menu select Live TV input sources.

Select the correct input source.
