Dr. Bill installs and tests a cheap, Chinese, four port HDMI Capture Card for the PCIe bus on your Windows PC System.

(NOTE: I did confirm, that if you select the "Custom Audio Device" option in OBS, you CAN get audio off of the ports on the HDMI card, however, they are WAY out of sync, so you will have to "play" with the offset.)
