So recently I bought the newest edition of the HD-PVR: Gaming Edition. This uses HDMI cables to record the screens instead of the composite cables that were required before. This allows for 1080p recording with simplicity.

The problem is, I hooked it all up and my screen lags. There is a delay between the HDMI IN port and the HDMI OUT port. The screen/xbox reacts about a second or 2 after I move on my controller.
The way it is set up:
Then of course, the HD PVR hooks up to my PC/laptop. The TV screen lag is about the same as the PC screen lag. The product is advertised as "no delay passthrough" which I find to be a complete false statement.
If anyone has one of these, or is good with things like this feel free to leave a reply. I'd love to hear any idea's you guys have. At the moment, this is impossible to play while recording/livestreaming/anything.
The only possible solution I thought of is to purchase an HDMI splitter to split the HDMI signal prior to the HD PVR and send one HDMI cable directly to the TV and the other to the HD PVR then to my PC. But I'd like to avoid buying more cables and making my wire jumble even worse.
