    I bought this for DirecTV and it does not work. Switched to a different HDMI source and it does work - has DirecTV beaten this?
    Peter Z on Dec 7, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I also were using this with direct tv. perhaps you have a defective unit or are connecting the wrong way....i was using it to keep HDMI alive when splitting the signal to a tv that was not hdmi capable. the only thing i didn't like about it was the fact that channel changing slowed down a bit.
    I have a 4K TV and a 1080p Projector. Would this send the corresponding signal to each or downgrade to 1080p for both outputs?

    Can I use this splitter for a Direct TV Genie to two TVs?
    New User U on Aug 3, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, that is exactly what I did. It works great! Keep in mind that you have to have the primary tv on in order to view the same channel on the second tv. I'm very pleased with my purchase. No problems with the picture quality or sound!
    Can this box be mounted on the wall?
    Gregory P on Jul 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Gregory,

    It can be but you'll have to get creative. There are no mounting holes or tabs on the device. The good news is power and In and Outs are on one side. Your best option may be if you can find or fabricate L brackets or a cradle much like a spice rack that can support and hold the device from the sides with openings for your cables which would allow you to lift the splitter out if you need to, regardless of which way cables are being fed from it, such as top, bottom or sides.

    Hope this helps you.

    What is the longest run grom dplitter to tv ?
    A shopper on May 14, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I have my splitter on 2 separate floors. It is set up in my bedroom, and runs through the floor to my basement. Probably about 15 feet between them. The clarity is perfect! But based on it's performance, I don't think you should encounter any distance issues. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

    Savior to my bedroom
    So this splitter solves all of my problems! I have been using a three year old HDMI splitter from Monoprice, nothing fancy, in my bedroom with the Cable box to split a copy to the little TV in my bathroom. After we upgraded the bedroom TV from a Panasonic Plasma to a newer (and bigger) Sony LED we started having problems with the screen going blank for a few seconds every minute or two. The frequency varied from show to show and scene to scene. It turns out the newer Sony must have a newer version of HDMI and it wasn't happy with the old splitter (it is a 3D TV) but this new version is 3D compatible and now we have no more glitches in 2D. Haven't used the 3D or 4K features. One TV has a 15' Tartan cable and the other a 10' MediaBridge, both have solid signals now.

    PROS: Fully compatible with newer TV's with newer HDMI specs.

    Splits one Cable TV box HDMI output to two 1080p HDTV's with no problem.

    No screen blanks or glitches like older splitters.

    Wife has stopped complaining.

    CONS: Its a rectangular black box, thick HDMI cables may limit how you position it.

    Great product
    I bought this HDMI splitter to show what's on our video screen in the sanctuary to the smaller group in the family room. This way they do not miss out on any thing in our church service while they are with the kids.

    The splitter is small, but works for us great, so far. I have it mounted on a shelf in the church attic for access to the HDMI cables.

    The HDMI signal is received fine on both devices: A video projector mounted on the sanctuary ceiling, and a small LCD screen in the family room.

    As I have just installed it, I can't speak to reliability, or other errors, or long term issues.

    PROS: Small footprint, easy to connect, works great.

    CONS: None

    Just what I needed.
    I recently purchased a projector and screen for my living room. I wanted to have it connected to my sources concurrently with my TV, however my receiver only has one HDMI output. When I thought about what I would need to solve my problem I figured a powered switch with remote would do, but as I was searching the site I came across this item. With this all I would need to do was run HDMI from my receiver's output into the input of this splitter, then connect both the TV and projector to the two outputs of the splitter. That's a much more seamless solution as I wouldn't have to have another remote for switching between the two. Immediately after connecting everything and testing it out for a while I was very happy that I decided to go with the splitter instead of the switch. Both the TV and projector are connected at the same time, and when I want to view content on the projector all I need to do is power it on and pull the screen down. I don't need to change any inputs on the receiver or do ANYTHING else (besides power down the TV). My projector supports 3D and this splitter does indeed support 3D as advertised.

    Finally, I would just like to note that this splitter is a nice looking item, it's got that nice, glossy piano black finish that looks great. Fingerprints aren't really a concern since there are no buttons to press, it just sits there and does it's job. It has a red LED light that is always on, which I mention to inform those out there who are bothered by them. This LED is pretty dim, it's not overbright like those found on most routers.

    If I wanted to be negative and nitpick anything I would point out that the power supply is a wall-wart type, and I would prefer a standard power plug with an in-line power supply. But as it is I have plenty of power outlets and other solutions to that problem.

    All in all I am happy I chose this item, I have never been disappointed by Monoprice and recommend them constantly. Great job once again, guys. :)

    PROS: Functionality, Price, Craftsmanship/Finish, Size

    CONS: Wall-wart power supply.

    Works great for me..
    I was looking for a way to add a fourth monitor to my recording studio which is running from an IMac computer. I am running a single mini displayport output, to an HDMI adaptor, to the single HDMI input on the Monoprice splitter. The splitter is sending great quality video to a 27 inch monitor and a 36 inch television simultaneously. This is what I need it to do for me and it is working great. I was not sure if the single computer output would be enough to power dual HDMI's, but it's doing it through this splitter with really nicely. Another note... the television display is running through 35 feet of HDMI cable and the 27 inch monitor is running through 6 feet of HDMI cable. Pretty impressed that it worked so well. Hope this helps.

    PROS: Compact, worked as I hoped it would out of the box.

    CONS: None yet..

    3 D splitter
    great splitter, great service.. Does exactly what I needed it for..

    PROS: this splitter works when PS3 doesn't send HDMI to receiver via optical. I have 1 hdmi going to my projector and the other hdmi going to AVR, Pioneer Elite 03).. I now get the DTS-HD lights on with 7.1 showing on the receiver..

    Excellent & DOES pass thru high def audio
    Been using almost a year, very reliable. Someone said it doesn't support high def audio, but just take a look at the user manual link and you'll see that it does. Highly recommended.

    From manual: "Supports High Definition Audio, including DTS-HD & Dolby True HD and uncompressed LPCM"

    PROS: Works great.

    Easy setup.


    CONS: None that I can think of. I'd give it a 10 but want to wait and see long term endurance.

    Pretty Good
    When working the unit is great. Something with the HDMI handshakes is telling the unit not to send sound to one of the TVs. I can get it to work after some manual intervention, but not quite the easy solution I was hoping for. Not sure its the units fault though. Could be my setup.

    PROS: Nice HD picture and sound when working

    CONS: Doesn't split sound to one of the outputs without some manipulation on my end. Not sure its the units fault, but a pain just the same.

    Response from Monoprice
    Hi Darrell,

    Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the handshaking issues you have been experiencing. Could you describe your setup including all devices and cables in use? What is the length and gauge of the HDMI cables in your setup? Have you tried switching the cables or testing with another device or display?

    Many times handshaking issues occur when the HDMI is passing through a heavier load, resulting in signal degradation, especially when in use with devices such as switches and splitters. Using 24 AWG HDMI lowers the chance of signal degradation and improves signal reliability. Can you verify that the cables in use are 24 AWG?

    Please let me know if anything changes. Hope this helps!

    Just what I needed!
    I bought this to split the output of my Xbox 360 to two 1080p LCDs in my gym. I've noticed 0 change in quality of the signal (why would I?). Perfect device for splitting HDMI to two devices. Love it!

    PROS: Easy setup


    Works as designed

    CONS: Wall wart takes up more than one space on power strip
