Yes, it does capture audio. You can plug in a microphone to the Pengo 4K HDMI Grabber. OR you can plug in the microphone in the PC and the software will combine everything. The actual capture is done through a software on the computer. The Pengo 4K HDMI Grabber does not do any recording.

We recommend checking your DSLR output resolution and match our supported resolutions. Our 4K HDMI Grabber does not support 1080i. Some DSLR do not output 1080p, which is the resolution we support. If you still have questions, please write to us with a full description of your problem and settings.

It really depends on the Kindle and the cable you are connecting it with.


1. The Kindle has to support video output of 640x480p, 1280x720p, 1920x1080p, 3840x2160p, 4096x2160p. Please make sure it's 'P' and not 'i'. We do not support 'i' (interlace). If the Kindle doesn't support video out, then our grabber will not support. These two resolutions need to match. Whatever the signal comes into the grabber, that's what we will output to the PC for recording. Our grabber does not do the recording. The recording still needs a computer and software.

2. The microB cable needs to convert to HDMI. Our device connector is via HDMI. Therefore as long as the cable can transmit video from MicroB to HDMI, then there should not be any issues.

Yes, as long as the device (i.e Macbook Pro) supports HDMI with 1080p or 720p. If you still have questions, please write to us with a full description of your problem and settings.

If you are having a black screen, make sure to turn off HDCP under PS4 settings. To find out how to turn off HDCP please check PS4 user manual.

The 4K HDMI Grabber does not capture 3840x2160p. It captures 1080p with a loop-through 3840x2160p.
If input source is 3840x2160p @ 50 fps, the grabber will capture at 1080p @ 50fps. If input source is 3840x2160p @ 60 fps, it will capture at 1080p @ 60fps. Whatever the "fps" is during input source, the capture will be the same, only the resolution will downscale to 1080p. We support 60fps, 50fps, 30fps. We support commons seen fps. Rare fps please contact us to verify.
VLC, Quicktime, Potplayer, OBS, VMix, we believe it's compatible with many others as well, but we have fully tested with the ones that we've mention.

Please make sure the device you are trying to capture is real 1080p. We do not support 1080i. Some devices advertise as 1080p but after a full test on the device, it's only outputting 1080i. The image will come out distorted if it's 1080i. Also the video settings on the software you are using might affect the images as well. Please check your video settings are correct. OBS settings are a bit more complicated and we recommend to follow our OBS quick set up guide.

If you are using OBS, try going into video output settings and change it to YUY2 settings. It should fix the problem.

Please make sure that your phone is updated to the latest iOS.  Our Lightining to 3.5mm audio cable is MFi certified and thus it should not have any issues.

The volume control will work with iPad Pro 2018 as long as the headset microphone with 3.5mm jack is an android profile headset. Apple headphones(iPhone profile headset) will only play/pause with no volume control.

Our USB C to 3.5mm is compatible with the majority of headphones (3.5mm Jack) and the following devices: iPad Pro, Huawei Mate 10, P20, Blackview S8, Nexus 6P/5X, Google Pixel 2 / Pixel XL, Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+, S8, S8+, Note9, Note8, Motorola, LG, Xiaomi, HTC, Nokia, OnePlus, Doogee, Bluboo, Macbook Pro 2017/2018, Google Chrome Pixelbook, LeEco and other. It is best to plug in headphones without controlers for best functionality.
Most likely does not work with GoPro because GoPro is designed to input audio for microphone. Our USB-C to 3.5mm adapter is mainly designed for audio out of mobile phones for headphones.
Pengo USB C to USB A cable supports 3A therefore your adapter must have 3A output to charge that the same rate. If you are using a 1A adapter, the total charging power will only be 1A even if your cable supports 3A.
If you are using a Macbook, please check your display settings, sometimes you need to force the 4K 60Hz signal out of your laptop. We cannot 100% determine why because it depends on the laptop and TV/monitor which we do not have control over. If you still have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
It is compatible with iPad Pro and everything is detected. Its full capabilities like Flash Drives will depends on the restrictions of iOS with external devices and third party apps.
To make sure where the problem comes from, please try to get a different cable to see if you have the same problem. If you still have the same problem with many cables, it could the that the connector in your phone is loose.
