Maximum USB Bandwidth
Because of USB bandwidth limitation, you cannot stream simultaneously two 1080p60 videos over USB. However, for example, these combinations will work:

• Input 1 at 1080p50 and Input 2 at 1080p30.

• Both Inputs at HD resolutions, such as 1080i60, 1080p30 or 720p60.

• Input 1 at 1080p60 and Input 2 at 1080p23.

• And all other combinations at lower resolution or frame rate.

• The internal scaler can be used to reduce the resolution and frame rate of the input if necessary
