    2x2 Matrix HDMI® Switch & Splitter

    Switch, split, and amplify your HDMI® signal with this Monoprice Switch/Splitter!

    This Matrix has two HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs, so you can switch between two input source devices and send the signal simultaneously to two displays. No setup or special configuration is required, simply connect the input device(s) and output device(s), then start using it!

    The unit also has a built in, automatically adjusting amplifier. This means that you can use longer than normal HDMI cables running to the inputs. The built-in amplifier will then regenerate the HDMI signal before sending it to the outputs. This lets you extend your HDMI beyond the normal range (25 feet) for High Speed (1080p) signals.

    The unit supports up to 1080p resolution, 12-bit per channel color depth, and high definition audio signals, such as DTS® Digital, Dolby® Digital, DTS-HD Master Audio™, and Dolby TrueHD™, as well as standard LPCM stereo.

    Note that you don't have to have two inputs and two outputs to use this device. You can use just the switching function if you only have one display or just the splitter function if you have only one input.

    Note: Monoprice strongly recommends the use of minimum 24 AWG HDMI cables when connecting a device, such as this switch/splitter, between the source and destination devices to ensure minimal signal loss and maximum High Speed signal reliability.

    Pros: Good splitter/amp. Works as described

    Cons: Does not do matrix switching.

    Despite the title stating this is a matrix switch, it only offers duplication and switching of a single input at a time. Does not do crossover as a matrix switch should.

    Many other reviews re-iterate this, dating back to 2012. The misleading title still hasn't been fixed. Can't return due to shipping (Aus), should have read the reviews more carefully. Disappointed Monoprice.

    Mostly Good

    Pros: Makes a good amplifier. I have a long run from my receiver to my projector, and was using the Redmere cables. It would work, except that about 10-15 minutes in, the signal would "blip," sometimes dropping entirely. Restarting the receiver would bring it back, but it was annoying. With this receiver in-line, I can use my Monoprice 23 AWG flat cables (which I love, by the way) for the run. I no longer have the problem with the signal dropping.

    Cons: When the power goes out, the splitter goes out. I spent about 10-15 minutes trying to figure out why I got no video, when all systems appeared to be go. Then I remembered this... Another issue, which has more to do with the inherent stupidity of the HDMI spec than their product, is that it "thunks" the HDMI signal down to the lowest common denominator. I have a 3-D capable, stereo sound, projector. I have a 2-D, DTS-capable receiver. When using this as a splitter, the receiver gets stereo sound, and the projector gets 2-D video. Why? Because the "proper" implementation of the HDMI spec is to only provide the signal that all devices can handle - the lowest common denominator signal. In this case, that means stereo sound and 2-D video. It would be wonderful to get a splitter that provided the proper signal to each device, and reported the highest common denominator signal (the BEST that all devices can do) to the source.

    See Pros and Cons. Summary: Good amp, doesn't automatically come on, follows HDMI spec.

    Just what I needed at half the price elsewhere. I haven't been disappointed yet with Monoprice.

    Doesn't detect xbox one

    Pros: Works great with PS4

    Cons: Does not detect Xbox One. It worked fine with the xbox 360, but it will not automatically detect the Xbox One

    Good product, but consider what items you will be using it with first

    Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 8155. If I may ask, what length and gauge (AWG) HDMI cables are being used in this setup? Have you tried switching out the cables being used with the Xbox One? What about using the Xbox One with a different port on the matrix? Also, can we try lowering the output resolution on the Xbox to see if any difference is made? Please let me know your results so we can look into this further. Thank you in advance!

    Very pleased so far...
