I am an electronic musician. For artistic purposes, I want to be able to record a video signal to a .wav file and replay that signal into a TV as video. It seems like it should be simple--if I reproduce the signal, it should turn out the same. Right?
I have an HDMI to RCA converter which works fine with my tv when used as expected in both NTSC and PAL mode. I take the yellow video cable from that and plug it into my audio interface with an RCA-1/4" adapter and record the signal as audio. When I replay the signal into my TV, it comes out like it's been subjected to Photoshop's motion blur horizontally at maximum, and in black and white. It's completely unrecognizable, looking only slightly better than static. If I use a recording from a black screen, I still get white in there.
If I turn on monitor mode, bypassing, although apparently not completely, the audio interface and just route the signal through, it is still black and white, and while still totally unrecognizable, I notice localized changes if I move my mouse around.
If I just touch the two cables together it works fine.
So I'm wondering, is this a sample rate problem? If so, what sample rate would be necessary? Or is it something else?
Using Komplete Audio 6 interface
Sample Rates 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 kHz Bit Resolution 16, 24 Bit
