    Does this splitter passthrough cec to power on/off multiple tvs?
    Darren O on Aug 31, 2017
    Does it have autoselect on the outputs?
    A shopper on Nov 29, 2016

    Will this active cable https://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=102&cp_id=10255&cs_id=1025507&p_id=12611&seq=1&format=2 work with this Amplifier Splitter as long as the other cables are non active cable?
    Luis H on Feb 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: When using Active HDMI cables along with HDMI switches and splitters, you would want to use them as HDMI outputs to be connected directly to the HDMI input on the displays. You can use 2 Active HDMI cables on both outputs, just be sure that the HDMI cable you are using for the input of the splitter is a passive (non active) cable. I hope this helps.
    Would this splitter work if I wanted to put a 4k signal to my TV but also put an HDMI signal to my non-4k reciever to pass bitstream audio?
    Scott G on May 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not. I don't have a 4K TVs but if works fine with my 2 non 4K tvs
    I am trying to split a cable box HDMI output to a tv in my bedroom and a tv on back porch. I would like to watch one without the other having to be on as well or having to unplug one or the other. Will this allow for that?
    Brandon B on Sep 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. You can use either output independently--one can be on with the other off. It's a passive splitter in that the box doesn't know whether you have an active output connected or not. It would be the same if you had one output unplugged. I use this with monitors in my classroom and I often only turn on monitor on for smaller classes.
    i want to play video from my laptop (source) into 2 HD tvs at the same time. is the the right device?
    New User U on Apr 7, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I’m using the splitter for a dvd & laptop into one tv...
    Works great. In theory your set up should work although it’s a 2 channel switch, it may only play on one tv at a time. I’d research more if I were you.
    i want to play video from my laptop (source) into 2 HD tvs at the same time. is the the right device?
    A shopper on Apr 7, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, this splitter can do it, however one of the video outputs will have some "buffer delay". So if you want the same video at the same time you might have a problem. If you don't mind some delay it works just fine.
    It is labeled as an "amplifier splitter" -- so does it actually "amplify" the signal. For example if I am using it in the middle of a very long run (e.g. 75'), will it boost the signal such that it is better than if I just ran a straight 75' cable?
    James S on Apr 10, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Its both because I have a run of over 75' from the 1st floor to the basement and back to the 1st floor and its crystal clear with no problem for DIRECTV
    I have 1 TV connected to a comcast cable box. Can I use this to split my 2nd TV to my other room? Please advise.
    A shopper on Dec 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. I am running 2 TV's off a Comcast HD box with that splitter. However, they say there is a limit to the length of the cables used. I don't have the spec's and also if the cables is longer than 25ft they recommend a heavy gauge cable which I also bought from Monoprice.
    would this allow me to use each monitor independently such as having outlook on one screen and the internet on the other?
    Richard R on Dec 20, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: This will not allow two different images on each screen. It will simy take one signal and split it to be viewed on two monitors. Most desktop and laptop computers seem to have two video outlets and you get the choice to "duplicate" or "extend" the video signal. "Extend" allows two different images to be viewed on two different monitors.
    What is the difference or benefits between an amplifier splitter and a regular splitter?
    A shopper on Mar 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The regular splutter will work if you are splitting the signal and it does not need to travel far. The amplified splutter lets you send the signal much farther. In my case I have a dvr for my surveillance cameras. The dvr is in my garage. The monitors are in my living room and in my upstairs bedroom about both about 70 feet away. I could run 1 or the other without the amplified splutter. The amplified splutter just has a power cord that plugs into 120v to boost the signal strength. I hope this helps.
    I have an AT&T UVerse box and a Samsung monitor. Work with both?
    A shopper on Jan 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: What are you trying to do? This is a splitter so one in and two out? So if you put in an input to the in side it will split the output to the two outs. I have this on a dual projector setup with a singl input to show the same thing on each and it works great.
    I am looking to splitt the hdmi signal from my Directv H25 receiver to a second tv. Does this splitter work without having a HDCP compliant error?
    New User U on Feb 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Unfortunately due to the large variance of television receivers and the general nature of Satellite/cable decoders, adding splitters or extenders between the source to the displays can commonly cause issues and require some trial and error. We would recommend trying to make the run as direct as possible and making sure the HDCP version used by the receiver is supported by all your equipment. I hope this helps, and of course if you have any more questions feel free to contact us!
    Will this work with PID#14745 need to split signal from stb to wall mounted tv and projector to be set up outside. Need to know if these 2 items will work together and if PID#14745 will work on a projector? It will be in line of site from stb.

    DVDO DVDO-AirG3-2 Air3C 60GHz Wireless HD Adapter
    BEST ANSWER: They are both HDMI, so yes will work together. But the question isn't clear enough to answer specifically.
    Will this work with a 3D capable TV if one of the outputs (A/V receiver) is not 3D compatible?
    A shopper on Jan 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, using an HDMI splitter like this to send a signal to an AVR and a display is not advisable. Due to the method at which splitters work, they force the highest quality common signal and send it to both devices. This unit features an ability to force the EDID information from output 1 or 2 but the end signal is completely dependent on the devices connected. An example is if output 1 is a display that supports 3D and 2.1 audio is forced onto the output 2 which is connected to an AVR, the AVR system will only output 2.1 audio. Certain televisions are capable of outputting 7.1 audio though they only have two speakers, and this wouldn't be an issue. I would recommend on consulting your owners manual or the displays manufacture to have a clear answer, i hope this helps a little.
    What is the maximum cable length for the input and the outputs?
    New User U on Dec 13, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, signal length is dependent on the signal strength of the devices not the splitter. Regardless this should amplify the signal and can reach up to 100ft providing the devices can output at that length. I hope this helps, thank you.
    Will it work for a Dish Wally satellite receiver to a hd 1080 tv and
    720 hd tv?
    David F on Dec 4, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, our HDMI Splitters are compatible with a wide range of devices so this should properly work with that combination. I hope this helps, thank you!
    Will this boost the hdmi signal to the tv. Got a 50’ hdmi cable and the tv won’t pic up cable signal?
    A shopper on Feb 10, 2018
    I bought this item. The User Manual says they can be used SIMULTANEOUSLY. Yet I find a switch, and that they do not work SIMULTANEOUSLY (See 1. Introduction). What can I do?

    Blackbird 4K 1x2 HDMI Amplifier Splitter
    I used this splitter to send my cable box signal to another room using a Select Active Series High Speed HDMI Cable with RedMere Technology, 25ft.
    I am very satisfied.

    Works but...
    The splitter works okay. It dose not pass full audio on port 2 (only could get 2ch) Port 1 passes everything. Ended up working for my needs as i needed to split HDMI to a surround sound processor. Video works just fine.

    Does not work with 4K 60Hz
    My 4K DirecTv 4K box works great with my 35ft Cabernet cable PID 12736 but not after adding this splitter. I was told by Monoprice Tech Support that I need to purchase a different 4K splitter PID 15258 to properly split my 4K 60Hz signal. If you have 4K 60Hz signal don't purchase this splitter!

    I have never purchased a monoprice cable I didn't love especially the price.

    Improved picture from regular splitter
    I had the standard Monoprice HDMI 1X2 splitter feeding a Sony 720P TV and a Samsung computer monitor. The TV is about 3 feet from the HD box and the computer monitor is 25 feet away from the HD box. Both screens had good clear pictures so I thought I didn't need an amplified splitter. But the 1x2 HDMI amplified splitter was so cheap I bought one just for kicks. Installed it yesterday and I could immediately see a difference from the standard splitter. The picture on both the TV and the monitor were sharper as if my TV had an resolution upgrade and the computer monitor picture which was always a tad darker was immediately brighter and easier to see. So now I am a believer that the amplified splitter is a better solution. And for the record all cables are Monoprice 24AWG cables.

    One feature about the standard splitter that I liked is that the input and dual output HDMI connections were on the same side so it took up a little less space. The amplified splitter has the input cable on one side and the two output cables are on the other side. It makes sense to have the cables on opposite sides but for my setup I prefer all three cables to be on the same side of the splitter. But the amplified splitter is an improvement in picture quality and worth it.

    Signal boost works
    We purchased this device to help boost the signal from a DirecTV box back in a network closet, out to a TV in the middle of a moderate sized office space. Probably 50-100ft cable run (not sure, as it was run long ago through the ceiling, and they had a tendency to coil excess cable often).

    We were getting audio just fine through one of those HDMI-to-Ethernet adapters that uses two cables to carry the feed. But video would drop entirely every 10-15 seconds, for a few seconds at a time. Picture was also grainy constantly. I believe those DirecTV boxes just aren't designed to push a signal very far. Once we hooked this up, the signal was instantly clear, and no drops for a week so far. We're pushing standard 1080 content, no 4K, but I figured with the distance and issues we were having, a 4K splitter/amp would be extra insurance.

    The path goes: DirecTV box >> 6ft HDMI cable >> Blackbird splitter/amp >> HDMI-to-Ethernet adapter >> 50-100ft Ethernet run >> HDMI-to-Ethernet adapter >> 3ft HDMI cable >> TV

    -Good price
    -Good performance so far
    -Fast shipping
    -Good customer service (promptly responded to questions regarding the product prior to purchase)
