1X2 Mini HDMI® Splitter w/ 3D support
Watch your video content on two displays at the same time using this 1x2 HDMI® Splitter from Monoprice!
This splitter features a small footprint, allowing it to be hidden behind your home theater equipment. It has a single HDMI input port and two HDMI output ports, each of which are gold-plated to ensure smooth, corrosion-free connections. The splitter draws all the power it needs from the HDMI connection itself. However, an external 5 VDC power supply can be used instead.
The splitter supports High Speed HDMI signals, which means that it supports the following HDMI features:
- 1080p Resolution - It supports the full 1080p@60Hz HDMI resolution.
- 3D Video - It supports all standard HDMI 3D modes.
- Deep Color - It supports deep color up to 12-bits per channel, 36-bits total.
- High Definition Audio - It supports high-definition multi-channel audio signals, including Dolby TrueHD™ and DTS-HD Master Audio™.
Note: Monoprice strongly recommends using 22AWG, 24AWG, or active HDMI cables with Redmere technology to achieve the best results and to ensure minimum signal loss over longer distances.

PROS: Passes video signal to two different sources.
CONS: Cannot simultaneously pass uncompressed sound through outputs.
1. No sound would play if display discovery was turned on
2. No DVD would play because of "Secure HDCP link not found"
So I just bought this box and an additional HDMI cable.
1. Plugged the xbox into the splitter
2. Connected the splitter to the TV
At that point, the HDCP error was fixed, but sound from DVD was not playing on the TV. Sound from the games worked but not DVD.
So I went into the settings and reenabled "Display discovery", which now works thanks to this box, and also fixed the missing sound on DVDs.
Finally I can play DVDs with sound with my Xbox 360. HDCP is the worst crap I ever witnessed, I wish it would be banned from all electronics, it does not protect anything and makes your life miserable.
PROS: 1. Fixes all issues with Xbox 360
2. Small and easy to install
Keep in mind this splitter is limited by the HDMI standard and so it must select the lowest common denominator between the TVs. If one TV is 1080i max and the other 720p max, then the result is a request to the source device to transmit 720p. Since both of my TVs are 1080p, I don't know if the "lowest common signal" only applies when both TVs are on with this splitter.
PROS: Very small, so you can hide it.
Haven't had a single issue with video quality.
PROS: Compact size
One thing I learned is you MUST use the power supply in spite of claims by MonoPrice, and most importantly - You must power the switch last - Power it first and no workee.
PROS: It just works
CONS: I have 6 of these, every one of them needed the power supply to work.
Monoprice - Most users concur - you might want to change the product claims. Rated 9 by me for that reason
PROS: Works as advertised. Great splitter for the price.
CONS: Does not do signal conversions with a Canon 5D.
PROS: Plug and play
Delivers HDMI split even on a 50' cable run
Well built for the price
CONS: Will support 3D ONLY if both TV's are 3D capable
We use the product to watch the same channel in 2 separate rooms.
PROS: Affordable and ease of use. Just plug n go.
Additional Info: one of the splitters has output 2 connected to PID 4034 (40ft 22AWG CL2 standard HDMI). Second splitter has output 2 connected to PID 9171 ("Select Active Series High Speed HDMI Cable with RedMere Technology, 40 ft")
PROS: Small and easy to keep in place on TV mount with double sided picture foam.
