    Hi to everybody.
    I'm using Hyperion since 2019 on a HD TV.
    It was composed of an RPI3B, an APA102 led strip, a Fushicai USBTV007 capture dongle, an HD HDMI splitter and an HDMI2AV converter to feed up the capture dongle.
    Everything worked fine.
    Now I got a new 4k HDR TV (Sony KD-55A8), so I have at least to update the splitter to a 4K, but to simplify all the system I tought to change a little bit more than only the splitter.
    I would try to use a capture card with a loop output. In that way I can avoid the splitter and the HDMI2AV converter.
    I found this device on Aliexpres https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001401942149.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.1a292e0eSHYf45 (Coffee version because of 4k60Hz support)
    Does anybody use it or know if I can use it with success with Hyperion?
    TIA
    Roberto
