Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

What display device do you have?

Do you have a DVR you want in the system? or is there no need to record video, just to watch it?

No I am recording to the camera

WE are trying to use the Hdmi out to run a television in an overflow room at our church
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

So does the XA-10 need to both record video *and* display it via an HDMI port? is that the problem?

No I can't call
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

I will see if there is such a way to configure the camera - for simultaneous display through HDMI *and* recording of video too.
