Questions and Answers
I used this with a DISH 722K DVR receiver and it worked perfectly. The HDMI signal output from the DISH 722K was split and sent to two TV monitors. This worked.
Recently I upgraded to the DISH HOPPER3. The splitter would output to one TV or the other, but if both TVs were turned on, neither TV received a signal. Evidently the HOPPER3 has establishes two-way communication with the TV and when both TVs were turned on, the HOPPER3 was confused by two simultaneous responses.
Purchased to use with a Xbox One to provide output to the connected TV or the large screen on my home theater setup. Works perfectly for gaming with both screens or either screen individually. There is a problem with HDCP content though, as trying to watch Netflix on the Xbox fails. The Netflix app locks up the console during initialization. Also, Blu-Ray content provides audio only. If I take the HDMI Splitter out of the setup, and connect directly with the same cables (all Monoprice cables) it works perfectly, no issue. I purchased this box to avoid having to constantly change which cord is plugged into the Xbox to avoid wear on the port. I chose this particular switch because it was once of a few that supported HDCP but it seems unable to handle HDCP for movie content. I've tried setting the EDID switch to both STD and TV - no difference, neither works with movies. Both displays are 1080p.
Any ideas? Thanks.
Our knowledgeable Technical Support staff would be more than happy to assist.
Avoid this product like the plague, as WHEN (not if) you need a different HDMI splitter, Monoprice will force you to place a new order and have to pay shipping another time!

There is somehting in this box that does not like my Acer 1080p monitor.
I swapped cables around, and even swapped monitors, but for whatever reason, the output from this device to my monitor is turned pink. output to the main projector is fine.
when output directly from dvd player to projector, or monitor, the picture is fine, but ONLY when this device is inserted between the monitor and the dvd player is the image skewed pink.
if this worked correctly, it would deserv every bit of 4.5 stars (-.5 star for lack of keyhole mounting lots on bottom of case)
Since this is not even ding what it claims to do, I have to give it 1 star
PROS: EDID munging for easier setup
Compact power brick
All connections are on the same side
CONS: turns output to some displays pink
no keyholes in case to allow mounting
