    This is okay if only using the Streamspot but is using another software as well, such as VMIX, the HDMI should route directly into the HDMI unless one is splitting the audio/video and then using the encoder...otherwise the HDMI port should be used as the signal was already in an encoder and from there split to an HDMI splitter out to the PC with VMIX and the Streamspot box PLUS to any other device. In our case we sent to a projector in another room to allow for overflow viewing if not in Mass.
